Bookclub Christmas Bash

Did my usual giftbag with biscotti, Second Cup hot chocolate and a bookmark. This is what I came up with for this year. Well, I found the quote and image, and Peter did the grunt work.
I joined my bookclub in January 2006. I'm very grateful for it.
Here's what we read in '09:
- The Lace Reader Brunonia Barry
- What They Wanted Donna Morrissey
- A Thousand Splendid Suns Khaled Hossein
- The Book of Negroes Lawrence Hill
- The Senator's Wife Sue Miller
- Water For Elephants Sara Gruen
- American Wife Curtis Sittenfeld
- Skeletons at the Feast Chris Bohjalian
- Three Day Road Joseph Boyden
- Where White Horses Gallop Beatrice MacNeil
A lot of war this year. My favourite pick of '09 was Water For Elephants. The Senator's Wife, my pick, caused the most heated discussion.
