wishing for words

In honor of Cyber Monday, here is a lovely list of books that I am dying to get/waiting for you to buy for me because books are some of the best gifts. 

"Peter Pan"..in literary form!! I have never read the novel by J.M. Barrie and I'm sort of hesitant because it could possibly ruin the movies and stories for me, or be the best part of my whole Peter Pan obsession. Regardless, I want a copy to at least decide if I will make the leap into Neverland with teh wurds.


The Selby is radical, and I read/looked at the entire book, "The Selby is in Your Place" by Todd Selby, online and now I have to have a tangible copy. The whole book invades the subjects habitats and lets the viewer look at all the cool crap that these cool people have collected over time. Aesthetically pleasing, of course, but most inspiring to think about all the cool crap I will have someday.


A real copy of The Great Gatsby. 


"Superfreakonomics" by Steven D. Levitt & Stephen J. Dubner. Freakonomics is probably one of my top ten favorite books thus far and I am jumping at the opportunity of any book that is similar.


Tim Walker's "Pictures" is one book that I've heard so much about in the last few months. Walker's name and images have been floating around the web for some time, and I need a complete collection of his stuff.


"Game Change" by John Heilemann and Mark Halperin. I love politics. Embarrassing, I know. This book is all about the 2008 political campaign and how crazy it all was. A cute little fact for you, I turned 18 the day before election day in 2008, so that election was the first time I voted. It was incredible, and I've never felt more patriotic in my life. 


"The Chosen" by Chaim Potok. One of my favorite books that I read in high school, I'm desperate to get a copy and read it again. 


And last, but definitely not least, "Earth" by Jon Stewart.  No explanation necessary.


Holla for online shopping!!!!
