I’ve been very good this year. Especially when it comes to reading, I’ve been reading voraciously all year. And I’ve been especially good because I have tried very hard to save my pennies by borrowing from the library as well as from family and friends rather than buying the books.
So all I want for Christmas this year are the following titles:
Empress Dowager Cixi: The Concubine Who Launched Modern China by Jung Chang
The Heir Apparent: A Life of Edward VII, the Playboy Prince by Jane Ridley
Queen Anne: The Politics of Passion by Anne Somerset
Servants: A Downstairs History of Britain from the Nineteenth-Century to Modern Times by Lucy Lethbridge
A History of Britain in Thirty-six Postage Stamps by Chris West
Reprobates: The Cavaliers of the English Civil War by John Stubbs
Thanks for considering my list.

PS. Cookies and milk will be left on the table as always. As well as carrots for the reindeer.
