Do you ever think about what books you hope to not receive as present – some kind of anti-wishlist? Those books that are not really your cup of tea, that might wait on the shelf for an indefinite period of time?
This is meant to be a funny post, and the types of books I mention are my least preferred options for reading. However, there is a chance that I might read them IF someone very trustworthy recommends them 🙂

What are your least preferred types of books, the ones that you hope are not on Santa’s buying list?
‘Till next time … happy reading! 🎅
