A Bookish Christmas List: 2012

Dear Santa,

Here's the expensive bookish stuff only you could magic up for me this year. Besides peace on earth, I'll look for these under the tree:

Oliver Jeffers' Heart in a Bottle necklace
A Christmas Carol signed by illustrator Arthur Rackham
Ingleside to use as a writing retreat and museum
Tickets to see Stephen Fry in Twelfth Night (if not that, then this: Peter and Alice)
A steampunk laptop for writing things
And a degree from here

Thanks for everything, Santa. You're a good guy, and whatever you can work out will be great. Forget about cookies and milk. Only the best for you. Pumpkin brûlée on the bar with a glass of whisky to wash it down and warm you up.

All my best to the North Polar Bear and the rest.


p.s. I can't find a link for it, but there's a small space for rent in our downtown, and I could make the sweetest little bookshop...
