What are people going to read this holiday? I've been looking at books, but I haven't made a decision yet. B and N sure has a smaller selection than it used to.

It's a little early for me to be thinking about my Christmas read, but on vacation back in the US our next holiday is Thanksgiving (this Thursday). To celebrate I started a reread of The Briar King by Greg Keyes. The book is a pseudo-early American alternate history, fantasy-style, so it seemed to fit the holiday mood.

I want to be a princess
After reading Winter of the World I am sort of in an historical set of mind. I am reading the Asian Cycle by James Clavell right now. Of to a good beginning with Noble House. Of course I am reading them backwards These five books should take up enough time till Butcher and Hearne come out with there new ones and the end of the month. Will be time for a break to read those and then finish Clavells books.

and I like to party.
Brom's new book Krampus is sure looking good for the season, a much darker St. Nick's tale.

It never entered my mind
I've been considering Winter's Tale by Mark Helprin and If on a Winter's Night a Traveler by Italo Calvino for a thematic end of year.

I will probably reward myself with a read of Red Country. More than likely I will get to it early. So maybe IQ84.

I have both of those, but I think I'm only likely to get to the Calvino. More likely still is The Ghost Writer by John Harwood.
