All I want for Christmas ... Since most of you probably have your two front teeth...
Use this thread to post the list of books that you most want from your 2013 HF Secret Santa. Please list a range of choices (between 5 and 10 books) -- include title, author, and binding (e.g., hard-cover, paperback, Kindle, Nook). Books do NOT have to be HF and do NOT have to be on your PBS WL. You probably do not want to list books that are likely to get posted to you within the next couple of months.
Please post your list by November
Also, please list any allergies to smoke and/or pet hair that you want your Secret Santa to be aware of.

My Most Wanted List --- really anything on my PBS wishlist is great. These are just some of the top choices. Prefer paperback, but will be most appreciative of anything Santa brings.

Compiling my list but actually, anything on my WL would be fine and any binding is fine - including Kindle books.
Okay - right out of the chute - don't get me any "things". At my age I have plenty and you don't need to spend the postage. Let's focus on BOOKS and if you can get Kindle books - hooray! You then save postage!!!
Here are my most wanted (but not in any particular order - except the first one - lol)

Pondering...soooooo many options....
Either hardcover or paperback bindings are fine with me, except for the first one on the list, which I'd like to have in hardcover for my keeper shelf if my buddy decides to take on the challenge...LOL!!!

Any binding works for me. Just no e-books. Anything from my WL works for me, but these are a few that I would really like. (new or used)
They are in no particular order.

I already have almost all of the HF books I want to read next year (& then some), so most of my requests are fantasy & science fiction...
Preferred: ebooks (for iPad):

I am mostly reading from my Kindle so ebooks would be appreciated. I have been trying for a couple of days to make a list. Too many books, so little time as you all know. I am currently re-reading the Outlander series in anticipation of the new book coming out soon. I have the first 3 books already so any of the remaining books would be super. They are:
Also, I really want to start the Game of Thrones series next and I do not have any of those yet. Any of those ebooks would be wonderful too. And then there are those on my wish list....sigh...
I am always looking for new authors to read so if my Secret Santa has an all time favorite book they would love to share...awesome!
I'd love ANY of the books on my wishlist, any binding, but most of them are scarce and/or expensive. I've wish listed every version of the Sutcliff's books I don't already have, and I'd faint if someone could find one in the range our price limit! For some more reasonably available:
King's Man by Angus Donald

Hi Jeanne! Thank you. :) It's been a long time, indeed. I've kinda had to re-invent my routine/life this past year and I'm still trying to figure it out. ;) I'm excited about the Secret Santa exchange. I didn't want to miss it and am glad I got in right in time. Gotta figure out my wish list now. I have no clue what's new out there, so lots of catching up to do this week! :)
Would love to receive any on this list in PB or ebook is fine too (I have a Kindle). In no particular order:
