The Christmas Gift Thread

I am that crazy person who starts shopping for Christmas in September, and try to have all shopping done before Black Friday. This year I found interesting different ebook covers for the whole family, mostly because I am tired of people "accidentally" purloining my reader. What sort of ebook gifts are you planning on giving (or getting) this holiday season?

the friday after Thanksgiving when the christmas season "officially" begins. stores open at a ridiculous hour like 4 in the morning. huge sales begin, people fight, get stampeded and so on. I have never participated in this, and hope someone will institutionalize me if I do

And when's Thanksgiving?

And I'll do my ordering online, thank you! I do love the commercial from one of our major online stores (bol.com), where you see this father wanting to buy some presents...

Yeah my guy reads mobileread too. BUT my other gift recipients while happily ensconced with their ebooks, still have trouble with that dratted email thing and how to "surf". A recently received email ended with, "Running out of room, bye"....

So I feel safe to say that sellers on etsy.com made a lot of money from me with their ebook covers this year.

Fav for sony:

kindle:

Just wish I they made that kindle cover for sony 650, cause I luvs it.

Haven't have in my hands yet. I'll be able to check it out over Thanksgiving weekend (sent it directly to Thanksgiving/Xmas location), will report back on the cover then

On the 25th of December we always treat ourselves to the video of National Lampoon's Christmas.

Perhaps now is the time to ask that one in DVD from Santa.

As both my partner and I may both be out of a job in mid-December, we're not doing Christmas presents. (Note - even lawyers get laid off in this economy) But our extended family has only B&N giftcards on thier lists for me and my Nook. My partner is not an e-reader so much, but is fully supportive of my habit.
