Christmas is quickly approaching. What book- or reading-related gift would you love to receive for Christmas?
Oh, this is an easy one for me. In fact, my husband has been complaining that I haven't given him any gift ideas...but I gave him a list of books I want weeks ago! I've really been trying not to buy books for myself this past year, to save money. I use the library and borrow from friends. So, it's a wonderful treat to get new books for my birthday and Christmas. I like to give my husband a long list of books, so that he can have some fun choosing which ones to get me. Here's the wish list I gave him:
"Here is a list of books I would LOVE to read!
- Before I Go To Sleep by SJ Watson
- The Night Circus by Erin Morganstern
- Caleb's Crossing by Geraldine Brooks
- Time and Again by Jack Finney
- Left Neglected by Lisa Genova
- The Lake of Dreams by Kim Edwards
- Freedom by Jonathan Franzen
- Faith by Jennifer Haigh
- Great House by Nicole Krauss
- Solar by Ian McEwan
Then I had to tell him the very next day to remove Freedom from my list. I always tell my kids they're not allowed to buy anything for themselves in the month before Christmas, but I broke my own rule when I saw a copy of Freedom at our used bookstore for just $2! Just couldn't pass that one up...
And I bought LOTS of books to give as gifts this Christmas, but I can't tell you about those, in case anyone in my family reads my blog.
How about you? What books or book-related gifts do you want to receive for the holidays?
