If you're still looking for a stocking stuffer or two (or five), you can't go wrong with the new Penguin Christmas Classics series, featuring
A Merry Christmas & Other Christmas Stories by Louisa May Alcott
The Nutcracker by E.T.A. Hoffmann
The Night Before Christmas by Nikolai Gogol
A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens
Christmas At Thompson Hall & Other Christmas Stories by Anthony Trollope
They have beautiful foil-stamped covers ...
and lovely inner artwork as well, all in petite books that will fit in a purse or jacket pocket. I read the Alcott stories last week and am rereading A Christmas Carol tonight. I'll read the others during the coming week and I know that they will set the perfect mood for a lovely Christmas Day.
