Well, Halloween is over, and here in the US Thanksgiving is still two weeks away, but the stores are already full of Christmas merchandise. I admit, I have been listening to a little bit of Christmas music (I have a little bit of an obsession with Michael Buble and his Christmas CD is just awesome!) but I usually don’t get into the true spirit until the first snowfall.
But …. in browsing my google reader this morning I saw Judith @ leeswammes post about some Secret Santa exchanges going on in the blogosphere so even though it’s not yet beginning to look a lot like Christmas, I’m getting started on the season.
Despite my disappointing experience with a Secret Santa exchange last year, I am going to participate in the My Bookworm Santa exchange hosted at The Magic Attic. And here is my wish list for Secret Santa:
- Winter: Five Windows on the Season by Adam Gopnik
- The Little Shadows by Marina Endicott
- Everything Beautiful Began After by Simon Van Booy
- You Deserve Nothing by Alexander Maksik
- The Jewish Husband by Lia Levi
It’s going to be exciting to wait for the mailman and see what treasures await!
