Booking Through Thursday: Present Tense


Any books you’re particularly hoping to be gifted this year? Any that you’re giving as presents this holiday season?

I usually give books as presents, except to my father, whose book hoard makes him a sort of Franco-Irish Smaug. Since my family does read my blog a little, I will only say that Tom Reiss and Molly Ivins are involved for the books headed my family’s way. As for myself, I rarely ask for books, since I rely so much on public libraries for my reading, but I have specifically asked for The Smitten Kitchen Cookbook, based on my wild success with anything Perelman has ever written.
