Top Ten Tuesday: Books I Hope Santa Brings/Bookish Wishes


Usually the best I can hope for is that Santa will leave me a nice Amazon gift card!

The Two I Put on my Christmas List Given to My Adult Children

The Writer’s Cats by Muriel Barbery and Maria Guitart. Thank you to What Cathy Read Next for bringing this book to my attention.

The Cat Who Saved Books by  Sosuke Natsukawa I hope to read for Japanese Literature Challenge 15 (click the link to learn more about this Challenge).

Some of the Books I Might Buy With a Gift Card

A couple of off-beat titles–A Nature Poem For Every Night of the Year is an attempt both to do more nature reading and to try (for the millionth time) to enjoy poetry more). [FYI: There is also a Nature Poem for Every DAY of the Year]

Charlie Berens, in spite of his hatred of my Dad’s beloved Chicago Bears, is great! I love his You Tube videos (see the very bottom of this post for a video). “The davenport” and old fashioneds–what memories! (Except my grandparents made Illinois Old Fashioneds–no brandy, just WHISKEY, and we kids got the booze-soaked fruit, which I still love.) Just put on the Dean Martin show, please! The Ranch thing is my kids’ generation. No matter, Charlie’s a hoot. The Midwest Survival Guide by Charlie Berens. If Charlie looks familiar to you, he’s one of the Husbands of Target in that viral video.

  1. I hope you got the book(s) you wanted. I don’t get many books as gifts and I’m glad because I need to choose my own. I certainly hope to read more in 2022.
