I'm glad that you liked the books. *phew* I restrained myself from just going down my Star Trek bookshelves and randomly picking things from that.

Hope you had a Happy New Year!
I won't make it to any of the events, but I was really pleased that a few of Vienna's book presentations made it into LT. It makes me think I should enter a few again.
Dear Library-misstress/dear collegue,

Thank you so very much for your gift It took me a while to find out you were my Secret Santa, so thanks are quite overdue I fear. Nevertheless: I look forward to try "Nice girls don't have fangs". And yes, I do like the librarian point of view.

Best regards,

Maaike Hoebe
Danke für den Interessanten Tipp in den Bibliotheksperspektiven... Bin schon gespannt, wie es hier ist...
Thank you for making Secret Santa suggestions for me. I was unaware of "Sex Variant Woman: The Life of Jeanette Howard Foster", but you're right: I do want to read it. When I've lowered the Christmas stack from my family and my own Secret Santa, that's a title that I'll track down. It's also a great gift idea for my niece, who's an archivist very interested in queer studies.


I am so glad you received the books and like the choices! It is my first year to participate in SantaThing, and I enjoyed looking at some of the similarities in our collections. I am also fairly new as an active LibraryThing member. Hopefully I can build up a collection as impressive as yours! :)
Dear Santa,
I LOVE my books!
The Zombie Survival Guide is awesome and so is Pride and Prejudice and Zombies (Actually, I think Zombies are very cute and funny, so these were the perfect books!). I didn't take a look in Aleister Crowley yet, but I m sure it is evil as hell.

A funny story about the Zombie Survival Guide: My Santee was someone I know personally and I had no idea which book i should send him. I asked a friend of ours and she told me to send my Santee the Zombie Survival Guide (I never heard of it, did'nt read a page in it, but it did sound funny and so i chose it for my Santee). All the time I thought: "Damn, I want the Zombie Survival Guide myself!". When I opened my Santa-Books I had a really hard fit of laughter.

I'm looking forward to be your Santee again another year ;)


Thank you for the reply -- yes, I am looking for the English version of The Shoe Tester. It's turned into a bit of a treasure hunt!
I just returned from purchasing Catalogue of Death! I waited until Borders had a discount offer that would apply to purchases of less than ten dollars - LOL. It will be a treat for me to read it, so I shall save it until later in the year. I am pleased that you like her as well. "Bellehaven" is actually the city of Bellingham, halfway between Seattle and Vancouver, about 2 hours north of me.
I am currrently reading Bookmarked to Die last year's Miss Zukas offering; I noticed that you just posted about her today. Can't wait for her next adventure, due out in April!
