Here are the reads the Wickeds are leaving under the tree this year for family and friends:
Sherry: Really? You want me to list what books I’m giving for Christmas? My mom reads this everyday. Shoot now she knows she’s going to get a book. However my husband doesn’t read this everyday so I’ll tell you what he’s getting. King and Maxwell by David Baldacci and The Gods of Guilt by Michael Connelly. I love both of these authors so it’s a win-win for me.
Edith: For the little kids in my life, The Magic Hat by Mem Fox and The Frog Wore Red Suspenders, a book of poems by Jack Prelutsky. Someone might get The Bully Pulpit by Doris Kearns Goodwin. And I’m not sure what else!
Jessie: Since the people to whom I would give books have mentioned lately that they read this blog I think I’d be better off sharing books I’d like to receive! It may seem selfish but it will preserve the mystery and isn’t that what we’re all about here on the Wickeds? As an enthusiastic knitter I would adore a copy of both 150 Scandinavian Motifs by Mary Jane Mucklestone or Knitter’s Handy Book of Top-Down Sweaters: Basic Designs in Multiple Sizes and Gauges by Ann Budd. As a reader I would love to receive Bellman and Black by Diane Setterfield.
Barb: Since I’m pretty sure my brother doesn’t read the blog, I’ll disclose that he’s getting The Doors Unhinged, by John Densmore. Ditto for my mother-in-law, who is getting The Aviator’s Wife, by Melanie Benjamin. If anyone out there happens to be shopping for me, I could go for No Man’s Nightingale by Ruth Rendell, The All Girl’s Filling Station’s Last Reunion by Fannie Flagg, or Just One Evil Act, by Elizabeth George.
Readers: What are you giving? What’s on your list for Santa to get you?
