Top Ten Thursday: 10 Books I’d Like to See Under the Christmas Tree

There’s no such thing as too many books.

When people ask what gift I like, I always tell them they can’t go wrong with coffee and books. However, since my TBR list is a bit daunting and may send certain friends into a nervous breakdown from trying to pick the perfect book from the hundreds on my list, I’ve decided to give some help. Now, I know that this may be a bit late for this year, but it’s never to early to start thinking about next year . . . is it?

Any signed Pratchett will do, but Hogfather was my first
