The Beehive Asks: What book do you want for Christmas?

It’s been a LONG time since I’ve posted an installment of my Beehive Book Club, an occasional series in which I and some of my book-loving readers share what we’ve been reading. I’ll be putting that post up tomorrow in advance of a book-themed package of stories in Sunday’s upcoming Spotlight section. To kick things off, I’m posing a quick question right now: What book do you want for Christmas?

There’s a bunch of titles I’m eyeing myself, particularly now that the New York Times has released its annual list of 100 Notable Books of 2012. Tops on my list: “NW” by Zadie Smith; and Hilary Mantel’s “Bring Up the Bodies.”

If you share with me by mid-morning Thursday, I’ll try to use your answers in Sunday’s Spotlight section.

The Smitten Kitchen Cookbook. Love the blog. The book looks great.

The Yellow Birds by Kevin Powers and The Round House by Louise Erdrich.

I also want a hard copy of “The Fault in Our Stars” by John Green. Read the e-book, thanks to the library… but I want a copy of my very own!
