BTT - Gifts



Booking through Thursday asks
Any books you're hoping to get for the holidays this year?

11-22-63 by Stephen King for three reasons:
  • I remember 11-22-63
  • We always say "what if?". That's why we like reading so much, we put ourselves in the position of a character and we wonder "what if" this was me?
  • Sounds like King's earlier writings. I devoured his earlier books, then somehow they started to change, or I started to change.
The Belly Fat books by Jorge Cruise because I've seen the results in my pastor and his wife.

How about giving? Are you giving any good ones?

Hubby asked for three Tony Hillerman mysteries. Son wanted sequels to the Eragon series. They've already gotten them,  none of us could wait! Daughter and I swap books all throughout the year, and she has asked for a NIV Bible for her birthday.  And there are a few to wrap today for the grandkids.

In the meantime, please make your nominations for the best books published in 2011 at Indie Lit Awards.
