This is my new, updated holiday list. I've had to rethink/edit the list a bit because it was too long. Now it's better!
The Complete Peanuts 1950-1952 by Charles M. Schulz. When I first saw the book in Barnes and Noble I knew I had to have it. The first strip starts off with the following statements: "Good 'ol Charlie Brown, yes sir...Good 'Ol Charlie Brown...How I hate him!" After briefly browsedthrough the book, I realized that the first strip sets the tone for all of the strips. Also, I *heart* Charlie Brown. I still watch the Thanksgiving and Christmas Special during the holiday seasons!
Boswash by Nich Bertozzi Okay, I haven't heard too much about this particular indie book. Oh wait, I have...mostly mixed reviews. Some like, and some thought it was okay. I want it either way. As far as I know, the book is about a cartographer. Since I'm somewhat obsessed with maps, it's only natural that I'm interested in this title. In other news, I've been hand-drafting AND using autocad to create maps! Right now I prefer to use autocad to digitize a map. Maps are cool...I must have 6 maps already in my collection.
Soft chocolate chip cookies!! MMM! I'm entering a new phase in my love for sweets. I have renewed my love for cookies, especially chocolate-chip. Mmmm. I prefer homemade but there are plenty of sweet shops that offer delicious cookies too. Bring it.
A new notebook. I've run out of notebooks to write stuff in. From important events-to phrases heard on the radio-to recipes- to phone numbers- to to to...I love writing my thoughts in a notebook.
Maps, maps, maps. Any and all maps. I'm not picky, so long as it's accurate and not using the mercator projection. There are 200+ projections in the world, I want to discover them all! Maps rule. Yes, I'm a geography nerd. So what!
That's it, people. Let the gift frenzy begin!
