I'll let that sink in a bit.
I'm as irritated as anyone when it comes to stores selling Christmas items before Halloween, but a part of me understands the importance of planning ahead. We don't go huge on the gift giving, but each year there are more nieces and nephews, friends and neighbors to buy for. Some family members mentioned having an online list where they have thoughtfully suggested some items they would like, and here I am asking you what you think. Tacky or helpful? Which list or site is best? What about for those of us who are in love with books? Do you ever find yourself looking on someone's Amazon wish list or TRB pile on Goodreads? How do you as an author (if you are) get your books onto those Christmas lists?
There is so much to think about. While you're putting together your thoughts on how to respond, I'll show you what I found when I went searching for online Christmas with list registries:

Please leave some comments, thoughts, or advice. I definitely want to remember all the wonderful friends during the holidays, but sometimes it feels overwhelming. In the meantime, I'll grab a cup of coffee and some delicious holiday creamer and read your comments!
