Books we got for Christmas

Here are the books we opened yesterday:

* God’s Harvard: A Christian College on a Mission to Save America, by Hanna Rosin

* Animal Farm, George Orwell

* Homage to Catalonia, Orwell

* The Nine, the Supreme Court book by Jeffrey Toobin

* Mother Teresa, Come Be My Light

* How to Talk about Books You Haven’t Read, Pierre Bayard

And the most peculiar one was unearthed at a used-book store by my son. It’s a 1959 book called The Great Imposter, the Amazing Careers of Ferdinand Waldo Demara. It tells the story of a man who posed as a surgeon lieutenant in the Canadian Navy, a prison warden, a doctor of philosophy and a Trappist monk. (Later, I see, this was turned into a movie starring Tony Curtis.)

I won’t be starting any of these books til I finish my current project, Pride and Prejudice.

One more holiday note: I won’t get into brands, but new headphones can really make an iPod sound dramatically better.
