Books & Bookish Gifts

This week's Top Ten Tuesday is 'Books I Hope I Find Under My Christmas Tree This Morning.'  I don't really celebrate Christmas but I do like presents. Here are the ones I want, at least, for today.

01/ Mr. Boddington's Penguin Classics of Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte — there are web photos that shows a green version but I like the yellow version

02/ The Folio Society edition of The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett & illustrated by Charles Robinson — there are a lot of editions of this book but most of them are badly designed but this Folio edition looks nice

03/ Portuguese Brazilian edition of Agnes Grey by Anne Bronte — I can't read Portuguese or even recognized the language but I really like the cover of this edition

04/ Macmillan Collector's Library of Anne of Green Gables by L.M. Montgomery — even though they are tiny editions, I like the simple way they design the covers

05/ Metro Sleepwalking by Jimmy Liao — I can't really read Chinese but I love Jimmy Liao's work and have almost all of his books, this one I really like to have

06/ The Winternight Trilogy by Katherine Arden — I have not read a single page of this series but I like to and there's the gorgeous covers, the above is for the UK paperbacks but I also like the U.S. versions as well

07/ Marilla of Green Gables by Sarah McCoy — Marilla before Anne of Green Gables? I definitely want to read this, I hope there are bits about Matthew in there

08/ Gift Certificates
— for more books of course

09/ Book Shelves — I do need a place to put books but honestly, shelves are just excuses for me to organize and reorganize my books

10/ Blank Notebooks — one could never have enough notebooks

  1. Have you thought of getting a kindle reader. I have heard good things about them.

    1. I did tried the kindle but it keeps crashing and I had to return it. I'm hoping to get a new one when they release a new version.

      thanks for visiting & have a lovely day.

  2. I always love gift certificates as gifts- being able to buy books without spending my own money is awesome haha- and I like seeing the different book editions you shared- some of those Folio Society editions I've seen are pretty nice. :)

  3. Lovely to read your latest post and visit you here! Well done for putting up your art work. I followed the link and have ordered the picture I liked the best! Guess which one? But anyway, you will see when the payment with my name comes through!
    I like seeing your book list. The last one looks good. I would like to know more about Marilla and Matthew too!

  4. I love that The Secret Garden edition, it's lovely! I also love the UK covers for the Winternight Trilogy, though I only own the US ones right now. This is a fun list! And I totally agree about the notebooks!
