I love the Charlie Brown Christmas show, especially the music! And now, day 1 of my holiday shopping guide:
If you're looking for a few books to add to your collection this holiday season, or to give as gifts, I highly recommend the following:
Ten Thousand New Year's Eves by Dawn Deanna Wilson: I loved this one so much I wrote a blurb for it - it's a wonderful book and perfect to buy now and save for your last read of 2011.
Lessons in Forgetting by Malaika King Albrecht: Her poems put us at windows into the moments shared by mothers and daughters dealing with Alzheimer's. Gorgeous and poignant.
Night Swim by Jessica Keener: This debut novel is available for pre-order and will be a gorgeous book to read moving into the new year. Keener creates a story that is its own song, hitting every note perfectly.
