Oh, the Weather Outside...

really is frightful, at least for us here in the Sacramento Valley. Ice on the windshield and in between rows of the field, huge globs of mud in my shoes, and a chill in my veins. But inside, with a fire going and slippers on my feet, it feels heavenly.

I'm in the perfect mood, therefore for holiday shopping, especially the kind that involves a laptop and some hot chocolate. For those of you with like minds, here are some great resources:

  • The Emerging Writers Network is posting holiday shopping guides by various authors. The selection, which includes fiction, poetry, and journals, is eclectic and intriguing.
  • If you're looking for something a little more mainstream, Largehearted Boy has compiled a list of all the "Best of..." book lists for 2009. It's staggering.
  • My new favorite non-literary blog, Design*Sponge, has gift guides of the fabulous and funky organized by price. Hooray for great finds under $25!
Happy shopping!
