A Bookish Christmas

Ack. I have so many great things to share with you guys and not a lick of time to get them up. This weekend for sure! Because a few of you have asked, and he does get a ton of books, these are the reads my son is getting for Christmas. Some old. Some new. And in no particular order...

Simon in the Land of Chalk Drawings: Obviously.

Astrix Ominbus: I figure with all the Tintin love floating around this house, it's a sure thing, right?

The Lord of the Rings Trilogy: Since I scared the crap out of my son all the way through my very dramatic reading of The Hobbit, I thought we'd move forward and start getting to know the rest of Middle Earth.

Birds of Feather - You know my son is a bird freak, and this lovely lift-the-flap and flip-over-the-colors book is a perfect match for him. Goodness, it's lovely.

Gentleman Jim: Everybody loves Raymond.

Bone Volume 2: My son was afraid of these books for so long, but now he's jumped right in and loving them. Begging for more incessantly. I am going back and filling in what books we have missing chronologically. This should keep him quiet for about a day and a half.

Cartoon History of the Universe Part III: Book I and II have been huge hits in our house. But then again, anything in cartoon form makes my son go nuts.

That's about it. If you happen to run into the sweet pea, please don't give the surprises away. :) I can't believe we are headed into the home stretch already!


Read along on FacebooktumblrTwitter and Etsy.


  1. I love Pittau et Gervais. I just bought the gorgeous Axinamu, but since my grown children unfortunately don't appreciate anymore, it's just for me!

  2. Asterix OMNIBUS?! Why didn't I know these existed? And some are available in hardcover (OMG, did you see the Amazon price for Vol one's Hardcover?)

  3. This is awesome post with great insight!
