Top Ten Books ~ Books Santa Can Bring Me



Top Ten Tuesday
Top Ten Books Santa Can Bring Me
Brought to you by The Broke and the Bookish

You all are about to see how nerdy I am. ;) I prefer to own books like this, that I can keep and read and use. I only buy books that I plan on using or are by my favorite authors these days. 
             




Expressive Photography - The Shutter Sisters Guide to Shooting from the Heart: I am a quasi-professional photographer. Completely untrained. I would love to learn more.




The Write-Brain Workbook - Bonnie Neubauer: I used to write all the time, and I seem to have lost my way and ability. 



Canning for a New Generation by Liana Krissoff: I am all into this kind of thing.


Homegrown and Handmade by Deborah Niemann: Yep, more of this kind of thing.


How to Sew a Button and Other Nifty Things Your Grandma Knew by Erin Bried: I don't know how to do this sort of thing. 


Birds of Michigan by Ted Black and Gregory Kennedy: I love birds.



The Homemade Pantry: I love this idea and want to get started!


Twelve by Twelve by William Powers: So fascinating. And a little bit like Little House?


Fairy Tales from the Brothers Grimm by Phillip Pullman: Because I love fairy tales.

    1. I don't know too much either, but I want to know more. I usually make jam with my uncle every year, but it would be nice to can other stuff too. :)

    1. It would be nice to know how to sew a button. Right now I have to defer to my husband's prowess at sewing. Lol. :)

    2. My mom and her whole family are brilliant sewers...I didn't learn and I sure wish I had!

  5. Interesting lists. If I'm not wishing for fiction books, I'm craving cookbooks. I recently got Gordon Ramsey's Family Fair and can't wait to try some recipes out.

    1. I love Gordon Ramsey! He kind of scares me, but he obviously knows what he is doing! I will have to look that book up. :)

  6. Oh, those are all a lot of fun. I don't tend to read any non-fiction, but I do think that canning one looks interesting. That's one thing that I could see myself getting into.

I love hearing from people, don't be shy! I would love to hear what you think! I always reply back, although it takes me a bit longer these days due to the little guy.
