Barbara wants to know:
What books did you get for Christmas (or whichever holiday you may have celebrated last month)?
Do you usually ask for books on gift-giving occasions or do you prefer to buy them yourself?
I actually didn’t get any books for Christmas this year. My in-laws gave us a gift card to Barnes & Noble to pick out our own books. The only time I actually ask for specific books is at Christmas. My brother and I put a variety of things we want on our Amazon.com wish lists and use those to buy each other gifts. This year, there were a few books on my list, but my brother chose the DVD of Up from the list.
