Musing Mondays

Musing Mondays is a weekly meme hosted by Rebecca at Just One More Page 

Today’s MUSING MONDAYS post is about your bookshelf… 
With the holiday season now upon us, have you left any hint – subtle or otherwise – for books family and friends might buy you for Christmas? Do you like to receive books, or do you prefer certificates so you can choose your own?


My family are very direct when it comes to Christmas and birthday gifts. We ask.
I always ask for books for Christmas. This year I have asked for specific books. I want a series of books about the history of Sweden by author Herman Lindqvist. I have the short version but I would like the whole set so that is what I have asked for.  I wouldn’t say no to other books either :) but these are books that I want but haven’t gotten around to buying for myself.
This is the same author who wrote a book that I just bought this week and got signed. I am very excited to read it!

Well, I like your family! I see nothing embarrassing in asking or hinting or in my case, fully expressing what I would want! That one way of saving the disappointment.

Your family does it right - that way nobody will be disappointed in what they receive.

My daughter gave me her wish list of books..the entire Plum series (15 books so far). Yikes!

I find it easier to give books when people tell me what they like. I haven't left any hints. I have a kindle--so I just buy books when I want them. I do like to get books for Christmas--it's fun to read them through the holidays
