Many packages under the Ferraro family Christmas tree contain books. Mostly with the words "From Tina/Mom" on their tags because the only thing I love as much as getting books is giving them. It's the time of year I splurge on hardcovers, coffee table books, cookbooks, boxed sets...whatever strikes me.
I have also been known to buy a book I am dying to read and wrap it with a simple "For Tina" on the card. Not that I am kidding anybody about who it is from, but hey, I have to make sure I get my fair share, too!
And each December, my thoughts inevitably drift back to the young mother I met at a holiday party who told me she was asking everyone to give her a book for Christmas--one they had read and felt she'd love--with an attached card saying exactly why they chose it. She felt it would give her personal one-on-one reading experiences with the people in her life, as well as quality breaks when her small children were asleep. I loved that idea then, and still love it today.
How about you? Is the holiday time a big book buying time for you, too? And any book in particular you are hoping to receive?
