I’ve spent an inordinate amount of time in the bookstores in the past couple of weeks, and I’ve seen (read: drooled) enough to make up my Christmas wishlist for this year.
I posted my Christmas wishlist last year and was able to cross out around 75% of them, but the list is shorter this year so if I’m just half as lucky, I’ll be very happy.
No pressure on friends and family; the biggest pressure is actually on me and on my willpower to hold out on Christmas splurging!
1) Deluxe hardcover boxed set of (wait, let me wipe the drool off my chin that has been trailing me since I spotted it this afternoon) The Millennium Trilogy by Stieg Larssen
2) The Cardturner by Louis Sachar
3) Reckless by Cornelia Funke
4) The Last Dragonslayer by Jasper Fforde
5) The Ring of Solomon by Jonathan Stroud
6) Heroes of the Valley by Jonathan Stroud
7) World Without End by Ken Follett
8) Fall of Giants by Ken Follett
9) Robert Sabuda pop-up books (except Alice in Wonderland and Wizard of Oz)
10) The Saga of Larten Crepsley by Darren Shan
11) The Monstrumologist by Rick Yancey
Oh, and a Barnes and Noble Nook — but I’ll probably get that for myself! :D
I solemnly swear not to do any more Christmas shopping for myself (I should make progress on my list of presents to give, though) … at least not til Christmas gets here!
How about you, what’s on your wishlist?
