For us addictive readers out there, it's probably no surprise to anyone who *really* knows us that for any gift-giving holiday, we want books. There's even a good chance that I'll want books as my wedding gift one day. Actually, I totally will.
So, it really... really.... really goes without saying, that there's a solid 110% chance that I want books for Christmas this year. Yet no matter how many amazon lists, paper lists, emailed lists that I send out - my family always insists on buying me clothes. <insert major groan here>
Occasionally I will get a cookbook, which don't get me wrong - I love cookbooks. But rarely will I get the staggering pile of books I so longingly hoped for.
So this year, in addition to all my regular list distributions, I'm throwing together my list on my blog. Just in case Santa is reading.
How Did I Get Here: The Ascent of an Unlikely CEO by Tony Hawk
No, I'm not really a skateboarder. But I am always curious about who people who love something "different", and end up being just as successful in life as someone who went to school and got a good paying job.
Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare
Not my most favourite series ever, but an interesting prequel to the Mortal Instruments novels that have done well in satisfying my need for teen-lit.
Hungry Monkey by Matthew Amster-Burton
I am a total foodie and I can picture myself trying to be exactly like this Dad trying to raise his kid to be an adventurous eater. I want to know how he did it!
A Journey by Tony Blair
I have an obsession about reading world leaders biography's, I always wonder what they do all day.
When did I get like this? by Amy Wilson
Why am I hung-up on parenting books right now? I have no idea. But this book was featured on a blog I read called Mother Load, and I feel like it might help me understand the stress I put my own mother through. Or at the very least, prepare me for the torture my own kids might inflict on me one day.
