The rules are simple: what would I give to my Secret Santa (wait, I’m the Secret Santa, my secret…naughty child…?) if I had endless time, money, and desire to do so.
This year, I got KSena. What I know we have in common is that we’re both readers of Shadowmanor, so I like her already!
The first thing she gets is a Kindle, because she loves to read. And not one of those crazy iPad-knock-offs, but one that’s almost exactly like a book except much lighter and may require a battery. I’d get her a Nook, if she prefers, but really, it’s so much easier to get things onto a Kindle, sorry Barnes & Noble: I love you, I really do, but you’re Sony [Betamax/Minidisc] in this analogy.
She appears to also like vampirey things, so I will throw in not just some of my favorite vampy books but a session with the librarian at my formerly-local library, who would always recommend delightfully dark fiction for me.
To make up for not having a Nook, however, she’ll get a nook [my embedding of images-fu is failing me]! An appropriately gothic nook to put her in the mood for reading.
Of course, she’s also a fan (if her reblogs can be believed) of the Daily Show. So she—and her family—will get an all-expenses-paid trip to NYC for a taping! Including first-class airfare and accomodations, of course. There, they’ll get to have dinner with Jon Stewart and he’ll sign her new copy of Earth: A Visitor’s Guide to the Human Race!
Happy Christmahanakwanza, KSena!
Finally, she’ll get a time turner, because, as usual, this got posted late
