A few weeks ago, I came across this question on Twitter: What Christmas gift would you want to give your favorite literary character?
Well, just for fun, I thought I’d take it several steps further, and choose 12 literary characters and/or authors from my 2011 Read List who I would like to give a Christmas present to for every “day of Christmas”. It doesn’t have to be real presents or presents that I can actually afford; it’s the thought that counts. 😛
This should have started on Christmas Day, but then who blogs during Christmas? 😀
I encourage you all to join in the fun and post something like this on your blogs (feel free to grab the banner), then leave a link to your post here. You can also share your answers in the Comments section. But please remember, none of those awful birds and maids and lords.
On the 1st Day of Christmas,
I’ll give Arya Stark from A Game of Thrones
1 direwolf pup.
On the 2nd Day of Christmas,
I’ll give Akiva from Daughter of Smoke and Bone
2 bottles of single-malt whiskey (none of that Seraphim wine) to drown his sorrows with.
On the 3rd Day of Christmas,
I’ll give Charlie from The Perks of Being a Wallflower
a 3-day vacation to Disney World so he can get rid of all that emo-ness for a while.

5 baskets of November Cakes and apple pies.
