    Christmas List

    Well, it's almost that time of year again - time to write the Xmas list of books that I want not quite enough to buy myself (like those expensive hardbacks) but would like to read sometime soon (and could use on the long plane flight back home).

    The two on my list are:

    Harry Potter - Order of the Phoenix
    RJ - Crossroads of Twilight

    What do you have on your Xmas list?

    Great thread!

    My list is long as usual. Here's what I come up with so far:

    The Briar King - Greg Keyes

    The Farseer Trilogy - Robin Hobb

    Curse of Chalion and Paladin of Souls - Lois McMaster Bujold

    A Secret History: The Book of Ash #1 - Mary Gentle

    Heroes Die and Blade of Tyshelle - Matthew Woodring Stover

    The Elder Gods - David Eddings

    A Fortress of Grey Ice - J V Jones

    Mistress of Dragons - Margaret Weis

    I'm sure I'll think of others as Christmas approaches!

    Well, it's not like I'm gonna receive every book on the list! I just made a nice, long list of fantasy books that I want for my parents/grandparents to choose from.

    Isn't this thread in the wrong forum? Oh well...

    I asked this year for a collection of classics... I'd really like to build up that part of my collection.
