Dear Santa

Dear Santa,

I know that you are receiving a multitude of requests these days with Christmas quickly approaching.  Life has been a bit hectic, but I just could not help myself in writing this letter to you.  It has been more than 20 years since I wrote my last letter and tonight, I write late into the night after a long day of work and finally getting two crabby children to fall asleep.  The thing is, with days like today, it is really a good book that allows me to escape and keeps me going the entire year.  Being able to sit in a comfy chair, turning the pages of a book filled with adventure, mystery, or wonder is something that can motivate me like no other.  So, tonight as I write this little letter to you, I want you to know that my little list of requests keeps on giving the whole year through.  It helps me to become a better mother, a more empathetic person in my everyday life, and it educates me more and more about the world I live in.  With a price tag that comes with just one of these books, the payback is truly endless!  Here are just a few ideas in no particular order:

Inheritance by Christopher Paolini

Clockwork Prince by Cassandra Clare

1Q84 by Huraki Murakami

11/22/63 by Stephen King

Lost in a Good Book by Jasper Fforde

Thank you so much for your bit of time and consideration!  I truly appreciate it and will be anxiously awaiting Christmas morning along with two not-so-crabby children!

With Warmest Wishes,
Tif :)


  1. great books :0 hope they are waiting for you christmas day :)

  2. I sure hope Santa comes through for you!!

  3. Lost in a Good book is excellent, Tif! And IQ84 is on my Christmas List too. I'm none too fond of Stephen King, but I'm a sucker for JFK novels (weird, since he died before I was born)- so this is for my 2012 library list.

  4. FICTION STATE OF MIND ... Thank you! I will keep you posted!

    Jenners ... Same to you! :)

    Tracy ... There are so many good books that I plan to read or that are coming in 2012! I can't wait!!

  5. Aww, so sweet and so true. Sometimes books are the only way to get a little sanity back into our hectic lives. It's a small price to pay for all that a book gives us.

  6. I hope Santa's good to you. Great list of books!

  7. Kristen M. ... Yes it is!! Now I just need to convince "Santa" that it's okay to bring me only books! :)

    Carol ... Thank you! :)

  8. Hope that all your bookish dreams come true! There's nothing wrong with books under the tree, as that's what I want too!

  9. Alexia561 ... I knew my book blogger friends would understand!! :) I hope your bookish dreams come true as well!
