This week’s top ten list happens to coincide with Christmas Eve, so what better topic to explore than the books I wish to see under the tree tomorrow morning. And I will see them there, right Santa*? I haven’t been this angelic all year just for fun.
As you might be able to tell, I have a bit of a book crush of New York Review Books classics. Many of the covers are beautiful – I’m thinking particularly of The Autobiography of a Corpse, In Love, and Rogue Male – and worth owning just for the that, but all of the re-releases I’ve read have been wonderful.
*For your information, I made Santa Nutella-Stuffed Brown Butter + Sea Salt Chocolate Chip Cookies, it that doesn’t convince him to stop by, I don’t know what will. It remains to be seen whether there will actually be any left by the time he’s supposed to be here. Odds are against it.
