message 16: by Jocelin (new)

Jocelin | 151 comments I can't even begin to list 10 books. I'll have to wait until December. That way I will be able to condense the list.


message 17: by Joi (new)

Joi | 19 comments Delirium
Pandemonium
Requiem
Alice on Board
It's Not Like I Planned It This Way: Including Alice; Alice on Her Way; Alice in the Know
Reconstructing Amelia

There are probably many more but I can't seem to think of them right now. Also, the books on this list I'll probably own before Christmas rolls around anyway.

Paulfozz My wish list at the moment is a little eclectic, not really much fiction I can think of and other than one that I 'may' be getting, I know I certainly won't be receiving any of these at Christmas:

Bird Populations (Collins New Naturalist Library, Book 124) by Ian Newton
Bird Populations by Ian Newton

The Malay Archipelago The Land of the Orang-Utan and the Bird of Paradise by Alfred Russel Wallace
The Malay Archipelago: The Land of the Orang-Utan and the Bird of Paradise by Alfred Russel Wallace

Structures Or Why Things Don't Fall Down by J.E. Gordon
Structures: Or Why Things Don't Fall Down by J.E. Gordon (there's a really nice folio society edition, though not listed on goodreads that I can find)

The Phoenicians by Glenn E. Markoe
The Phoenicians by Glenn E. Markoe


The House Sparrow (A New naturalist monograph, #19) by J. Denis Summers-Smith
The House Sparrow by J. Denis Summers-Smith

The Wind In The Willows by Kenneth Grahame
The Wind in the Willows (Folio Society edition) by Kenneth Grahame

The Rise of Rome - Folio Society Edition by Polybius
The Rise of Rome - Folio Society Edition by Polybius, which looks fantastic, though I do have doubts whether I'd actually read it!

Discoveries Among the Ruins of Nineveh and Babylon With Travels in Armenia, Kurdistan and the Desert by Austen Henry Layard
Discoveries Among the Ruins of Nineveh and Babylon: With Travels in Armenia, Kurdistan and the Desert by Austen Henry Layard

The Tomb of Tutankhamun - Folio Society Edition by Howard Carter
The Tomb of Tutankhamun - Folio Society Edition by Howard Carter. Though I have a standard edition to look through I'd love the gorgeous Folio edition of this, which looks absolutely stunning.

British Larks, Pipits And Wagtails (New Naturalist, #78) by Eric Simms
British Larks, Pipits And Wagtails by Eric Simms

They're all books I'd like 'some day', rather than books I know I'll own.

Kiera | 286 comments @Paulfozz Ooh, I have Wind in the Willows, I love it! But it's just a standard edition I got from Target here in Australia for $7. It's such an adorable collection of stories. I read it back in May when I was bed bound after my surgery. :)


message 20: by Paulfozz (new)

Paulfozz The Wind In The Willows certainly is a great book Kiera, I have a little 1970s hardback but the Folio one I listed looks lovely.
