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?
PLEASE LEAVE A COMMENT with either the link to your own Musing Mondays post, or share your opinion in a comment here (if you don’t have a blog). Thanks.
Every year my mother cuts out ‘Christmas ideas’ from the catalogues that get delivered in the mail, stickytape them to A4 pieces of paper and leave them on various walls and doors around the house. I tried sticking up the entire Dymocks catalogue, but it wouldn’t stay put!
My sister and I are exchanging books this year for Christmas – something we don’t normally do – and so we’ve given each other a wishlist to pick from. That’s about as far as my hinting really goes. I’m more inclined to receive certificates, because I find that my family (most of them non-readers) get nervous buying books as gifts, because they don’t know what I own/have read/etc.
