OK Reddit. Let’s cut out the karma-whoring Christmas present posts right from the start here by shoving them all into this thread. What is the coolest thing you got for Christmas?(r/AskReddit)
My parents couldn’t afford much this year, so I bought presents for my little sisters (11 and 13):
The Harry Potter Boxed Set, The Hunger Games Trilogy Boxed Set, Percy Jackson Boxed Set, Mrs. Frisby and the Rats of Nimh, Number the Stars, Bridge to Terabithia, The Graveyard Book, The Giver, A Wrinkle in Time, From the Mixed-up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler, Pippi Longstocking, Howl’s Moving Castle, Where the Red Fern Grows, Island of the Blue Dolphins, The Phantom Tollbooth, The Indian in the Cupboard, When You Reach Me, Because of Winn-Dixie, The Tale of Despereaux, Where The Sidewalk Ends.
The gift of giving, feels good man. To keep them in good condition I covered them all in contact paper. I used this video guide to get it down, and a bone folder to smooth out the air bubbles. They are a little glossier, but will last for years. Same thing public libraries do with trade paperbacks.
