Booking Through Thursday is a weekly meme about books and reading.
Any books you’re particularly hoping to be gifted this year? Any that you’re giving as presents this holiday season?
Yes, although I kind of doubt I will get any of the books on my wish list unless I buy them for myself! My husband and I tend to pick out our own gifts, so there aren’t a lot of surprises. Sometimes my mom or dad will give me a book for Christmas, but I’m not expecting any this year.
As for giving books, that’s a definite yes! As none of the people involved read this blog, I can tell you that I’m giving:
The Tiny Book of Tiny Stories by Joseph Gordon-Levitt (one volume to each of my brothers)
Barefoot Contessa Foolproof: Recipes You Can Trust (to my mom)
The Smitten Kitchen Cookbook by Deb Perelman (to my sister-in-law)
Ed Emberley’s Drawing Book of Weirdos (to my nephew)
Show Me a Story: 40 Craft Projects and Activities to Spark Children’s Storytelling by Emily K. Neuburger (to my niece)
I tend to give books a lot, as I never run out of ideas and can order and send them all in one swoop. I’m also giving a French book on origami to my daughter.
What about you? Any special books you’re hoping to receive or give as a holiday gift this year?
