It’s the Thought That Counts

by Alan

We're getting to the panic-buying days. And nothing makes a better present than a book, right? What book would you most like as a gift? Tell us, and you can share this post with "someone" who needs to know!

When I was a kid, I wasn’t wild about getting books as gifts. Now that I’m an adult older kid, I love it! For those who might want to get me a little somethin-somethin, here are some thoughts:

I’ve never read this (please don’t hate me):

David Copperfield

Or this:

Moby Dick


Or this, either:

Pride and Prejudice

Of course, there’s a reason I haven’t read these books (too difficult for my feeble mind to understand all that old-timey English). This might be easier:

Cliffs Notes Copperfield

Or better yet (I like board books!):

moby dick kids

Self-improvement books are usually a good idea. If results were guaranteed:

Round Ball Straight

Or maybe:

IQ Book

Here’s a book I don’t need anymore:

How to Swim

Maybe this one, to relieve stress:

Adult coloring book

I like cookbooks, but, please, not this one. Doesn’t look too appetizing.

Cooking with Pooh


And on that note, HAPPY HOLIDAYS!

A great list here! And that's the edition of Moby-Dick that taught Dash the story--and folks seemed impressed. We can pass it along if you want it! ;-)

A smile. Don't know how to post an emoji, so the words will have to do. Fun post, Alan.

Thank you for the suggestions Alan. BTW, my son likes to cook, so I asked if he wants Cooking with Pooh. For some reason he just laughed.
