Well, which list were you on this year? Santa’s Naughty List or Santa’s Nice List? I must have done okay because I got an Amazon gift card. Now I just have to decide how to spend it.
My husband and I are deep into the Harry Dresden books so that’s one option.
I’m also getting ready to reread Kathy Reich’s Temperence Brennan novels and I know I’m missing one or two of those.
I could go through my call slips from the library. When I request books, if I like something a lot, I make a notation on the pull slip to remind myself to buy the book. Of course, I also do this to remind myself to request the next book in a series or to rerequest a book I didn’t have time to read. This means that I have a stack of pull slips but that doesn’t mean that any of them are the “go buy this” variety.
Honestly, spending a book store gift card is brutal business. You’ll note, Amazon sells everything but I consider this what? A book store gift card. Spending a gift card is never an easy thing for me. I come up with ideas and consider each one. Getting one thing means not getting something else. Then I have to think some more. Finally I go a bit nuts and just make myself do it.
I’ve even perused the Amazon bestseller lists. This is seldom a smart choice for me. Every now and again I find something that reminds me — hey, I wanted that book. But I’m seldom a best seller kind of girl.
Suffice it to say that I have not made up my mind. Suggestions? Hints? Gentle nudges?
