Booking through Thursday asks:
What books did you get for Christmas (or whichever holiday you may have celebrated last month)?
Do you usually ask for books on gift-giving occasions or do you prefer to buy them yourself?
I didn't get too many books for Christmas but I think it's because nobody knows what I have or don't have. I did get a book on the history of Disney - the man, movies, parks etc. It's a lovely book with wonderful pictures too.
I also got the Griffin and Sabine set which was a surprise because I hadn't thought about those books in years. I remember pouring over them in college, opening the envelopes and reading the letters. My friend had a copy that I would borrow regularly. Now I have my own set with all three books! It was a great gift.
I don't usually ask for books. It's too hard to try to explain what I want. On occasion, if I'm out with my dad near the holidays, I'll let him know what books I want and he'll get them for me, saving them for Christmas. That's pretty much it. One year I asked for all of the Stephanie Plum books which was easy as they were numbered so well! I'd prefer to just get a gift card. It makes it easier on everyone.
