The Amazon Wishlist Saga

Awhile before Christmas, my mother-in-law asked me what I wanted for Christmas. I told her there were some things on my Amazon wishlist. She said, "But it's all books!" I told her that was because books were one of my favorite things in the world, and she said that that made sense then, and that she used to get people books for Christmas but had gotten out of the habit.

Fast-forward to Christmas Eve when I unwrap her gift. It is a boxed set of books on playing minecraft. I don't play minecraft. I've never even looked at that set of books on Amazon.com. I meet this gift with a quizzical look.

Apparently she was looking at my wishlist and somehow got off my wishlist onto something else, and thought she was still on my wishlist. She thought to herself, "I didn't know Sharla was so into Minecraft, oh well" and bought it.

We went over to my dad's computer in the next room and I spent a little time helping her process the Minecraft books for return and print out a shipping label. Then we went to my actual wishlist and she had me pick out a couple replacement gifts. I got Brian K. Vaughan's Saga Volume 4 and Ted Naifeh's Princess Ugg. I think these two graphic novels that I don't actually have yet are my favorite Christmas gifts.

:) That sounds like it worked out well, even if it was a bumpy beginning.

That's actually kind of sweet. "Okay, seems a little off, but I'll go with it..."

People who know people who liked this book also know people who liked this other book.
