Every Christmas, I get at least one book as a gift, often more than one. Last year I got a few books, one of which was The Museum of Intangible Things. The only gift I got last year from my parents other than books were plane tickets to Oregon. So, we headed to the airport, and I had read half of the book by the time we landed in Oregon. Each year, I show my mom my updated list of books I really want, and she picks a few from that list. I absolutely love getting books as gifts. Especially when they’re from people other than my mom, because other people always just get books that made them think of me, and I love finding out what makes people think of me.
I’ve never gotten a book that I didn’t want to read. Because even if they weren’t on my list of books that I wanted, I always want to read them and find out what reminds that person of me. If I did get a book I wasn’t interested in reading at all, I’d probably still just pretend that I like it and say thank you. No point in hurting someone’s feelings. And I would probably read it anyways because I honestly just read whatever is put in front of me, and maybe I’d end up really liking it.
My series is going really well. I’m almost finished with the second book. I really love this writer and her style. The books are my favorite kind, the happy-sad kind. They’re sad, but in like a hopeful kind of way. I love them.
For Thanksgiving this year, my family is going down to St. George to have Thanksgiving Dinner with my dad’s side of the family. I’m excited to see all my family, and especially excited to go down where it’s warm. For Christmas, I’m not actually doing anything. Last year, my parents decided they were done buying us presents, and they would just start doing a vacation for a Christmas present every year. This year we’re getting a trip to Disneyland because I’ve never been, but we’re not going until January. So I’m not really doing anything for Christmas except hanging out at home with my family. My dad is coming over, and my sisters and their husbands, so I’m excited.
