Dear Santa with Love from The Booksellers


Dear Santa,


I know we're cutting it close to the reindeer's flight but my friends and I have been good boys and girls this and we really hope you'll place the following books under our trees.


Albert would like "Breadcrumbs" by Anne Ursu.  It's a modern retelling of "The Snow Queen."  And while we're talking about crumbs, I hope you enjoy the cookies we've left out for you.



Eileen would like "What Every BODY is Saying: An Ex-FBI Agent's Guide to Speed Reading People" by Joe Navarro.  Hmmm, after reading the next book club meeting, maybe she can read us?




Jess P. would love, "Have a Little Faith' by Mitch Albom.  She just saw the TV Movie and knows that the book is always better.






Rachel would be thrilled to find "The Complete Works of William Shakespeare: Barnes & Noble Classics Edition" and "The Tao of Pooh."  Two books for Rachel, perhaps one is a gift to a man whose beard rivals yours, Santa?










Rebecca T. would like "Dust and Decay" by Jonathan Maberry, the sequel to "Rot and Ruin" which has a really cool looking cover.






Claire would like the compendium book to the "The Walking Dead Compendium" by Robert Kirkman et. al.    It's a great gift for a fan of the AMC hit series like Claire.






And I (Jenn N.) would shriek delight if I found, "Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty" by Andrew Bolton, with contributions by Susannah Frankel and Tim Blanks; photography by Solve Sundsbo. This beautiful coffee table book is the companion to the "Savage Beauty" exhibit at the Metropolitan Museum of Art that showcased the gorgeous, creative, and provocative fashions designed by the late Alexander McQueen.




Thanks Santa !  We'd also like to wish all our readers a safe and happy holiday.  Enjoy the day with your friends, family, and loved ones.  Merry Christmas !  And let us know, what books were under your tree ?

Mum picked me up What the Great Ate by Matthew and Mark Jacob for my stocking when it was super cheap at Borders. It looks entertaining, and I'm excited to read it :)
