Christmas books

As my granddaughter Caitlin always says, “We always know WHAT Granny will give us for Christmas, we just don’t know WHICH.”

The shopping is just about done but I haven’t done much wrapping yet. No one knows who will get the cookbooks, scifi books, business books, garden books, poetry, books about Christmas, novels OR magazine subscriptions. Ladybug!

Do you have a gift specialty? Does your family know WHAT if not WHICH?

    The best gift to me.

    I’m also a book-giver! Thanks to your blog, I discovered a perfect one for my mom.

    This really simplifies the ‘what to give’ problem. I need to think about this for next year.

    Lisa – I confess that in my shopping I did buy a Nancy Mitford paperback for my day after Christmas reading. My own personal tradition.
    Leah – I hope your mother enjoys it.
    Sharon- Books gifts definitely simplified my Christmas giving. What can you expect from a retired librarian?

    Do you mean that every December 26 you read a Nancy MItford book, or just that every year you get yourself a book to begin reading the day after Christmas? Whichever, I love it! Maybe what you mean is that your personal after Christmas relaxation is a day of reading.

    Nan – You have understood me perfectly. Not necessarily a Nancy Mitford although she is a good choice this year, but a quiet day of reading and eating leftovers by the fire.
