and for that, you're getting a bestselling thriller in your stocking

"Did you know there's a new book out about the '85 Bears?"

"Hold up a second: Are you suggesting that I get you A BOOK for Christmas?!?*"

"No, I already bought it."

"Um, what kind of guy shops for himself right before the holidays?"

"This guy. If I want it, I buy it."

"You dork."

*As much as I don't like owning books, I love to give them. And my brother claims not to read, which is why it frustrates him when I keep giving him books. Yet somehow he's intimately familiar with the contents of certain sports books--many of which he has received as gifts. From me.

Books! My most favourite gift [to receive, along with music]. I walk around with a book in my handbag, dip into a page here and there. I have a packed bookshelf in my room, it is a bother to dust though. But I am giving up those books!

Correction! But I am NOT giving up those books!
