Which Book Do You Most Want for Xmas?

The other day I was in Book Soup on Sunset Boulevard. I saw Bob Willoughby's Audrey Hepburn Photographs: 1953-1966 in person. I know it's really expensive, but I have to say, it's so beautiful! (Although it might be too big to fit down the chimney.)

What's the book you most want to receive this xmas?

That one for sure. But just too much $. I really want Juliet Gardiner's book about the 1930s in Europe. Don't have name handy.

I wonder if they allow people to even touch the Audrey book? Hmmm. I'll see.

Cheers Tina. I hope you're not too soaking wet. Worried watching from the East.

I actually most want the Chronicles of Narnia. I haven't read them since I was a kid, and I feel silly buying them for myself. :)

My list consists of nothing but books. I'm hoping for a Jonathan Franzen overload.

I'm greatly coveting Jonathan Safran Foer's new book "Tree of Codes". I've searched high and low for it and it's nowhere to be found. Only makes the wanting that much worse.

I've been quite interested in the new book about Patti Smith.

Curious Constellation, that Patti Smith book is also on my Christmas list. Can't wait to get my hands on it.

I'd also really like to get Mary Quant's autobiography, Quant by Quant, and the Rudi Gernreich book. Both are out of print and go for quite a lot of money, so I'm hoping for some Christmas magic on finding those two under the tree!

I really want "Fragments
by Marilyn Monroe" and "The complete Last sitting" by Bert Stern (which I think is also very expensive).

it would be so wonderful to have that Audrey book!

i also love these clothbound penguin classics, they'd look so pretty on a bookshelf, or a coffee table!

I'd really just love The Exquisite Book from Chronicle books. I should've bought it when I first had the chance to get free shipping. :)
but the Hepburn book you featured...oh I am not wealthy enough for that, but it is too gorgeous and incredible.
