I probably don’t need to explain what today’s post is about. I love books, and I love holidays, so… bring on the gifts!
In addition to recording what I read (and want to read) on sites like LibraryThing and Goodreads, I also keep wish lists handy on Indiebound and Amazon, when I just can’t wait for Paperbackswap or the library to get with the times.
So without further ado, I present:
Melody’s 2010 Literary Lust List
I found this while searching for directions to Punkin Chunkin, Delaware’s most famous fall festival. It takes place a few miles from where I grew up, and it is as old as I am. Coincidence? I’ll have to read the book to find out!
I picked this up in the bookstore the other day and immediately began snickering; Sedaris is a very clever writer. I would also accept the audiobook!
OK, OK, I know. I’m a huge dork. But this is a landmark book on literary criticism that I still haven’t read!
I’m interested in both of these collections because I’m planning a tattoo to memorialize my brother-in-law, who recently passed away. For some reason, our county library doesn’t have either of these books!
Oh, The Onion. What would I do without you? Probably get more done at work.
I love restorative yoga, and would really like an easy, illustrated book to advance my home practice.
While this would be a book that I would use primarily for work, I’m also interested in making my own website more successful on a low budget. This book has gotten good reviews, but so far, it’s too expensive for me to take the plunge.
This is another work-related but fun hobby I’m getting into—video editing. I usually like the visual quickstart guides, so this seems like a solid choice.
What about you? What books would you like to see under the tree?
