If you could ask Santa to bring you just one book, which would it be?

Hmmm.... that is a hard one. I played Santa to myself already and bought a bunch of books I had been wanting forever. But if I had to choose just one it would be Harold the King by Helen Hollick, no no wait, it would be Never Grow Old: The Novel of GIlgamesh by Brian Trent... OF COURSE I can't pick just one Valli! You must be crazy to expect me to be able to!

Felicia, that would be my one book as well. I will definitely be buying it with my gift cards.

I was hoping to hit some wishlists to spread some holiday cheer, but I don't have any of these books. Drat.

Me too.  I've had the Katherine Swynford book wishlisted since BEFORE it was even released!  I'm #7 of 30 in line for it.

Hoping for a B&N gift card again this year, a very generous cousin of mine usually gives me one.  Yay for cousins!   : -)

I want the same book as a lot of others; the new Alison Weir book. I'm definitely asking Santa for it! Maybe I should have asked which three books you guys would like to have. I might have had better luck finding books to post to wishlists. This did not work out as well as I'd planned! LOL We all want the same books!

Anne, I'm dying to read Nefertiti too!
