Have you been naughty or nice?
In the old days, before I had the money to buy my own books (or the knowledge of such websites as PaperBackSwap.com . . . ooooohhhh, PBS.com, how I love thee), my Christmas list was all books. I knew, looking at the packages under the tree for me that were all rectangular and went "thump" when I smacked my little brother in the head with them, that I'd gotten doorways to a new world (or a familiar one). I just didn't know which ones.
I kind of miss that these days. Barnes and Noble cards just go "thwip!" against my brother's head.
For those of you who celebrate it, Merry Christmas Eve!
