Last Sunday it was mother’s day in some countries as it was in the Netherlands, and as I briefly mentioned in my bookish mom post, my very first mother’s day. So exciting. While of course this day is to celebrate mothers and not nessecarily to exchange gifts, there is nothing wrong with showing your appreciation through a gift. I mean I gave out my wish list to my husband just in case. *wink*
For this Top Ten Tuesday, as always created by The Broke and the Bookish, we got a mother’s day freebie post and I have decided to make a list of books I would enjoy getting for mother’s day. And hopefully some other bookish moms right along with me.
Adulthood is a Myth and Big Mushy Happy Lump (Sara Scribbles 1 and 2) by Sarah Anderson
I’ve already seen some of her work on facebook (I follow her of course) and I love her comics. These would be a great gift. Especially as being a mom involves a lot of adulting. Adulting sucks if you didn’t know this already.
The Ravenclaw edition of The Philosopher’s Stone (Harry Potter 1) by J.K. Rowling
It is the ultimate gift to the Harry Potter book lover who is also a mom. Or if they are any of the other houses those editions are also out there.
The Discworld Mapp by Terry Pratchett
Clearly I must have this. Any Discworld fan should.
The Wind in the Willows by Kenneth Grahame
Or any of the other classics in these Puffin Classics editions. They are the best gifts!
