The week of Christmas! I’m so excited. Here’s this week’s question:
In these last few days before Christmas, I’m sure there are plenty of us scrambling to get our last minute shopping done. Are you buying any books for friends or family (or even yourself)? Do you expect to receive any bookish gifts from others — books, or book-related?
I’ve definitely purchased quite a few books for family and friends this year, partly because I always buy books as gifts and partly because I was trying to do my part to help the publishing industry. I can’t divulge any gift secrets, unfortunately, but suffice it to say I think everyone will be pretty happy with their book presents this year! And I absolutely hope to get books myself. I dropped quite a few hints with my sister and hope she came through getting a certain hardcover I’ve been pining over . . . all will be revealed on Thursday!

I basically got everyone books this year. My family knows about my wishlist and does pretty good sending me books on the list.
Hope you get the book you’re “pining” for. And I think it’s great you were able to buy books for some of the people on your list. I love to get books for Christmas, or for just about any other occasion – or non-occasion!
Hope you get the book(s) you want! Happy holidays.
I finished my Christmas shopping during the first week of December. Some of my closest friends decide that we won’t have exchange of gifts. But I mostly did the shopping online and have the retailers send the books to the recipients.
I don’t have to jostle to the mall for gifts but I’m eying for a couple new coats and sweaters for myself! 🙂
I didn’t post my response to this week’s musing question because I’ve been talking about holiday sales and supporting the book industry this entire month. So I’ll pass and read everyone else’s answer.
I hope you’ll get all you have pined for. Happy holidays! 🙂
I’m hoping to get “Girl with a Pearl Earring” and I gave “Good Omens” (which has become my book gift of choice).
