Gifts for your Author #OpenBook Blog Hop


When writing is your profession or hobby, chances are you’ve received all sorts of bookish gifts from friends (or purchased them for yourself)!

I trend towards minimalism when it comes to decorating. Obviously, books and computers don't count. The more books the merrier. So, I don't normally ask for "bookish" gifts, I ask for books.

My birthday is easy. That's about the time of year a new Longmire book comes out. All I have to do is give my darling hubby a gentle reminder, and a new book will show up along with my cake.

For Christmas I often asks for books of poetry or books about the art of writing. Last year I got adventuresome and requested the first book in the Jack Reacher series, Killing Floor. I enjoyed it, but I don't know if those books will become a tradition.

I have been gifted two "Harry Potter" wands that are also pens. I guess that counts as "writer-ish"?

So what's on my wish list if you want to buy a book for me? I can always find room for a new book on my already crowded bookshelves.

Introduce me to a new science fiction author. I haven't read science fiction for too long. Or perhaps a few biographies. I might be hard to please there, because they can't be of current  political figures or celebrities. I haven't kept up with the Collegium Chronicles by Mercedes Lackey (and there's a bunch of her books I  haven't read) so, that might be an easy place to start.

While I find room a place for that new book (that isn't piled on my desk!) let's head over and find out what the other authors suggest.
