It’s that time of year, even though Minnesota is just starting to get t the snow part which as much as I hate snow, it does make it feel more like the season. SO looking out the window at the lawn, it makes it a little hard to believe that in about two weeks it will be Christmas.
I think it is always funny when friends/family say “I know you love to read but you have so many books that I would never get you a book.”
What they are missing is I love getting books for any occasion.
A book from a friend to me means it is something they think I will enjoy. I love the meaning behind that. They are sharing an adventure within the pages and if they have already read it and want to share that adventure with me, even better. How many gifts out there really come in a nice square (EASY to wrap!) package that is not only lovely to hold… but to go inside, and meet …
That is so exciting to me!
To let me friends and family know the books I hope to experience, I keep an Amazon wish list. I find it easy to use, quick to add new books to, and it makes an easy way for others to pick out something they know I would love.
My questions to you is that as fellow book lovers (HIGH FIVE!) Are books on your wish list? Do you receive books from friends and family as gifts? How do you communicate to them what you would enjoy reading?
