All I Want for Christmas

Hi everyone!  I got an early Christmas present from my darling husband...a Nook Color!  I'm beyond excited about it, and it really is awesome.  I still have a sizeable book wishlist, though!  I think the Nook has actually made me ADD to my list!  Here's a quick glance at a few of the books I really want to see under my tree (or on my Nook!).  You can click on the pictures to see more details about each book at amazon.com.
Van Gogh, The Life by Steven Naifeh and Gregory White Smith.  I'm a huge Van Gogh fan, and this new biography fascinates me.

The Art Museum by Phaidon Press.  Everything about this book makes me happy - it is stunning!  

In the Garden of Beasts by Erik Larson. His book Devil in the White City is still one of my all-time favorites, and this one looks every bit as good!

  Nightwoods by Charles Frazier.  True story: 14 years ago, Cold Mountain was the first gift I ever gave my husband (we had just started dating).  I have a lot of love for his novels!

1001 Children's Books You Must Read Before You Grow Up by Julia Eccleshare.  This is another in the line of the British series, and I think the title says it all!  I want to make sure I haven't missed any essentials before I grow up :)

What's on your wishlist this year?  Did you know we have a great giveaway going on? Be sure to head over to our Books to Gift the Reader in your Life and see what you could win, just in time for Christmas!
