bookw-1667826_1280Every year my husband asks me for a Christmas list, and every year I come up with a few books which I must own a hard copy. To qualify for my list, it has to be a book I know I will read, reread, and re-reread over coming years. The problem with my list is that I often pick books that are out of print and hard to find.

This year, I received from my in-laws The Big Book of Christmas Mysteries. I talked about it earlier this month. Because it’s made up of short stories, both classic and modern, it has wide appeal and you can dive in anywhere.

Did you get books for Christmas? Digital or paper? What titles and why did you ask for them?
