Tell Me What You Want, What You Really, Really Want.

02 Dec Tell Me What You Want, What You Really, Really Want.

As the days of November trickle by, I feel like the end of the year is out there somewhere on the horizon. Still far off enough to feel sort of far away.

Yet, going from November 30 to December 1 feels like the rug has been pulled out from under me!

Whoa, where did the end of the year come from? And why does it feel so shocking? Maybe it’s just me?

Of course there’s so much to do. Lists, upon lists, and then more lists.

As a giant bookworm, my favorite gift to receive is— a book, or all of the books. Shocker, I know.

I’m all for someone randomly giving me a book of their choice, but what is super fun is receiving a book that I specifically I want. Or, even a book from a well-loved genre. Their are just so many great books to choose from 📚

I think my mom is the person who never fails to ask me what I’d like for Christmas. My answer is always, “nothing!” This year she responded with, “please, just tell me something.”

If you have a similar encounter, you could of course make up some kind of list,

Or,

you could visit this site created by Random House and make the process of list making more fun and also cute.🎄

I’m going to walk you through their site, so you can see for yourself:

1. So you click here to begin
2. Is the book for you or someone else?
3. I selected, ‘for me,’ because I chose to be a little selfish 😉 The bottom half (the pink area) allows you to scroll across a description that best describes you at this time.
4. After selecting a description, three books pop up.
5. Select one of the books and a synopsis will come up. Below that different retailers will appear for you to purchase from.

You can go through this site over and over. Select for yourself or someone else. Experiment with different descriptions to see different book choices.

Here is the place to to go to give this a try!
