Wish List time!

For those buying presents this season (most people, but one can never assume), I have some gift suggestions....Nothing beats something personal - whether it be something you make or you find just the right item for just the right person in a store.






Ok, I'll be the first to admit that they are biased by way of stuff I'm interested in, but it may should help you out....


BOOKS (Fiction / Fantasy / Historic Fiction)


The Way of Kings by Brandon Sanderson

Game of Thrones by George R.R. Martin

Ice Dragon by George R.R. Martin (a 'children's tale', much the same way that The Hobbit is a 'children's tale')

Lord of the Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien

ELECTRONICS / OTHER & MISC


E-reader. They seem to be popular, and keep people reading! Kobo & Kindle are good gets..for kobo, get the touch or the mini, as the 'non LCD screen' is better for your eyes...I don't know that much about Kindle, though, but i imagine they offer a 'non-LCD' screen type.

Blu-ray player

External Hard Drive

USB stick

Bookends

PJ pants

Scarf

toque

...that's about all I can think of at the moment that I myself like and enjoy, and other people might like also. Everyone has different tastes, but I hope these can be of use to YOU!
