I got "Them", the new Old Fourth Ward novel; the Gabler bio of Walt Disney and the newest Jonathan Lethem novel. Oh yeah, Rhett Butler's People, too.... guilty pleasures is my excuse :)

What did y'all get?

I got a few linguistics books and A Mencken Chrestomathy.

On a side note, who here spells it "y'all" vs. "ya'll"?

I got four more volumes (hardback!) of Patrick O' Brian's Jack Aubrey series. Almost have the whole set now. I read them from the library before; when I get them all, I'm reading the whole thing over again.

I spell it "y'all"

Coming late to the party, but I got Theories of Everything: Selected, Collected, and Health-Inspected Cartoons.

And I've always spelled it y'all. A contraction of you and all.

Dear Bibliophilus: Speaking of the Jack Aubrey/Stephen Maturin novels, I have the whole 20 titles, both in print and in audiobook, and I have read and listened to the whole set about 5 times each. Every time I re-read them, I appreciate more fully what a fine writer O'Brian was. This stuff is great literature; Jack and Stephen will sail the seas together for at least another century.

It's "y'all," y'all. What are you giving as great books?
