Follow Friday (22)

TGIF everyone! It's time for Follow Friday!

Letter to Santa: Tell Santa what books you want for Christmas!

Oh Christmas! I can't believe it's already Christmas time again! This is definitely one of my favorite times of the year.

I will say that Santa came a bit early for me. ;) Today, he dropped off a beautiful leather-bound, gold-edged edition of Grimm's Complete Fairytales by the Brother's Grimm! (Because someone got rid of her other beautiful hardbacked Grimm fairytales book because she was such a smart 12-year-old! Stupidest thing I ever did!)

The image really doesn't do it justice, it's absolutely stunning! I don't know if you can tell, but the embossed trees on the front cover have very scary faces! I have been pouring through this all day. Would you believe Santa found this for me at Costco? (For those of you who don't know what Costco is, it's a big warehouse where you can buy bulk items... if I ever buy books there, it's usually cheap, mass-market paperbacks!) For Christmas gifts, they had a bunch of these beautiful hardcover editions... I saw the complete works of Edgar Allan Poe, Mark Twain, Robert Louis Stevenson, and Homer's Illiad & Oddysey. It was definitely a struggle for Santa not to take them all home!

Love it! I've been kicking myself for years over getting rid of a lot of the books I had when I was younger ... the now book-loving me is sad. ;( Happy FF!

Hi, there!

'Old' follower here! OMG, Santa was sure good to you this year, via Costco!! He definitely knows the best places to shop! Lol. I'll have to ask him to drop by there...because I would love to have one of these leather-bound beauties!! (Or maybe two or three...)

Nobody else has this particular book in their letter to Santa, I'll bet!! What a lovely choice! : )
