Booking Through Thursday- Jan 7



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.

I managed to ignore all the Griffin and Sabine furor back when it was going on. But recently I read the first two books in the series, and now I'm hooked! Lovely books. I really prefer gift cards, too - for giving and receiving, both.

I usually have a book list for special occasions, but don't often receive books as gifts :)

I was a very lucky girl this Christmas! Here is my BTT response.
