I received quite a few books this year, which is always a most welcomed gift. Here's the list:

The Golden Bough by Sir James George Frazer
The Monsters: Mary Shelley & the Curse of Frankenstein by Dorothy & Thomas Hoobler
Russian Fairy Tales collected by Aleksandr Afanas'ev
Absinthe: History in a Bottle by Barnaby Conrad III
Les Liaisons Dangereuses by Choderlos de Laclos (in English translation)
Inside the Victorian Home: A Portrait of Domestic Life in Victorian England by Judith Flanders
Salome by Oscar Wilde with the original Aubrey Beardsley Illustrations (The English translation)

What a wonderful collection! I would be delighted to receive any one of those. It appears you have two things going for you: 1) good taste, and 2) friends/family who know it.
