The Gift that keeps on giving

I would like to thank my sister for a very cool Christmas gift. On Christmas Day I opened a gift card from Barnes & Noble. We love bookstores, either live or online.

So later on Christmas Day I decided to do some book browsing. Then I found my choice. The Barnes & Noble Classic Series. In a few quick clicks on the Barnes and Noble website I was the proud owner of 15 new books.

A couple of days later two big boxes a arrived at the house.

This collection of books was under the Classics and Classics for boys.
