Book Buying by Allison Symes

Okay, hands up, I buy books all year round. Just have to, right? But we are rapidly approaching the major book buying season of the year. Naturally I will have a list (and by the time this goes out I may be putting the finishing touches to it, ready to present to my loved ones. I am, at least, easy to buy for).
I will often save my non-fiction requirements for this time of year given such books tend to be more expensive (though in my mind worth every penny. Someone has often put in lifetime of work and research to produce said book).
One thing I miss buying though are the Discworld books on audio for my husband because we’ve got them all now. For years, that was Christmas, his birthday, and our anniversary presents taken care of in the nicest possible way given he commutes. Audio books are a joy for that. If you have any recommendations for humorous fantasy on audio, do share in the comments! We still love listening to stories, as well as reading them.
As for where I buy my books, I mix this up deliberately. I have used Bookshop.org and Hive.co.uk (including buying my own when they’ve been on offer. My publisher encourages me to do this and I get the royalties. Also I love the way these two companies support independent bookshops).
However, you buy your books, I hope you find there are plenty coming your way assuming you have your list ready!
