My Books Wishlist for the Holidays

It’s finally happened. I always have my nose in a book, but for some reason, friends and family tend to buy me book store gift certificates and book-related accessories – and never books.

Not that I minded either the gift certificates, or the book-related accessories. For example, one year I got this great portable book light from Lee Valley (well, not quite the same one, but very similar). I love it because it’s one of the few mini book lights I’ve seen that isn’t battery operated – a real blessing because unless I used rechargeables and recharged regularly, I felt like I was always replacing the batteries.

But this year, things are a little bit different. It might be because of this blog – now not only am I reading like normal, I’m always saying things like, “Oh, I’ve got to go write up this review for my book blog.”

Could it be, everyone is actually starting to take my reading more seriously? Hah!

This morning, my older son asked me to put together a books wish list. He and his sister are going to head over to our local Chapters store to buy my presents.

And I’m going to have a great evening, looking through my i-want list, and browsing through my feedreader, looking for all the books that I want that aren’t available at the library.

It’s going to be a nice Christmas around here!

    Ya know…I feel sorta dense now. I hadn’t even thought about creating a book wishlist although I’ve been getting that dreaded question left and right…what would you like for Christmas?

    Glad to hear that your family is also seeing the change in you and that you’re able to take the reading more seriously. :)
