Books we’re giving for Christmas…

Of course, The Qwikpick Adventure Society and Sock Monkey Rides Again are at the top of everyone’s Christmas list, but what else makes a great Christmas gift?

Well, here are some of the books we’re giving this year. I’ve given you Amazon links, but encourage you to buy from your local bookstore if at all possible. I made a list on Amazon, then emailed it to my bookstore and they ordered them for me. Of course we bought various other things from Amazon that can’t be obtained locally. (i.e. League of Gentlemen DVD)

The Little Cat Baby http://www.amazon.com/Little-Cat-Baby-Allan-Ahlberg/dp/0803730128

Race to the South Pole http://www.amazon.com/Race-South-Pole-Great-Adventures/dp/8854402176

Juggling for the Complete Klutz http://www.amazon.com/Juggling-Complete-Klutz-John-Cassidy/dp/0932592007

(I learned to juggle from this book way back when.)

Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy http://www.amazon.com/Hitchhikers-Guide-Galaxy-Douglas-Adams/dp/0345391802

(I learned to survive high school from this book way back when. But I wish I could have bought one with the classic cover at right. I don’t think the new one even says Don’t Panic on the cover. What’s up with that?)

The Tripod Trilogy by John Christopher http://www.amazon.com/Tripods-Trilogy-John-Christopher/dp/0020425716

The Cat Who Walked Across France http://www.amazon.com/Cat-Who-Walked-Across-France/dp/0374399689

And what book do I wish I’d find in my stocking Christmas morning?

And by the way, if you’re out shopping and you see some poor schlub of an author sitting behind a table with a stack of books, go buy a book. A signed book makes a great Christmas present! Especially if it’s The Qwikpick Adventure Society!
