A few years back, we siblings and our respective partners agreed that as none of us really wanted for much, we would in future draw names. Now we buy a present for one person each year, cutting back on stress and expense. (We still buy for all of the children because it’s all about them – you can interpret that as you see fit.)
From the corner of my office a gift bag is taunting me; it’s my Christmas present from the family draw.
I haven’t peeked in the bag because
the ribbon’s tied too damn tight I don’t want to spoil the surprise, but I can tell it contains books. And I have no doubt they’ll be good – my sister in law and I have similar reading tastes. But the contents might not be enough to get me through the holidays – you can interpret that as you see fit. So please help me out by giving me some supplementary book suggestions. What are you reading this Christmas?
