Mothers Day : 25 Books Your Mom Secretly Wants

Due to the popularity of one of my posts (Quick Gift Guide: 25 Most Wished for Books) here is yet another list of the most wished for books. Compiled by the website, a site that allows people to make wish lists and swap books through the mail. This list represents the books people secretly wish they'd receive as gifts. For what ever reason they haven't bought them for themselves making this a perfect starting point for buying gifts that will truly be welcome and cherished. Those, "how did they know?" sorts of gifts. Think about or snoop through the books your gift recipient already reads and then pick from the list below. The 25 are:

- 7th Heaven (Women's Murder Club, Bk 7) by James Patterson & Maxine Paetro

- The Complete Tightwad Gazette by Amy Dacyczyn ( Ana says: wow I have to admit this one rather surprised me. This just shows the downturn is really causing concern. This is a pretty good book although much of the information you can find online.)

-The Choice by Nicholas Sparks

- Blink : The Power of Thinking Without Thinking by Malcolm Gladwell
(Ana says: this is a really great book and for some reason I really like the author Malcolm, probably because he's such an unique person and shows up in Simon Doonan's Eccentric Glamor... it gets real dry in the middle which makes the book a hard one to stay with but its a good chapter by chapter read.)

- The Secret Lives of Men and Women: A PostSecret Book by Frank Warren

- Rachael Ray's 30-Minute Get Real Meals : Eat Healthy Without Going to Extremes by Rachael Ray (Ana says: sorry but Ms. Ray's recipe are so filled with butter and really hit or miss in terms of flavor. Give this and 10 or 20 pounds may come with it.)

- Eat, Pray, Love by Elizabeth Gilbert

- Harvesting the Heart : a Novel by Jodi Picoult

- The Almost Moon by Alice Sebold

- PostSecret: My PostSecret by Frank Warren

- The World Without Us by Alan Weisman

- Mercy by Andrea Dworkin

- God Is Not Great: How Religion Poisons Everything by Christopher Hitchens

- Fearless Fourteen (Stephanie Plum, Bk 14) by Janet Evanovich

- Acheron (Dark-Hunter, Bk 12) by Sherrilyn Kenyon

- The Secret by Rhonda Byrne (Ana says: check out your local library for this one because once you've read it... well you've read it! There isn't much to come back to. It has a few good points but keeps saying the same thing over and over in order to make a book. I don't think I've seen such filler in a long time. Here's another gasp, I'm not sure it can really be of much help or comfort. If anything you're left thinking I've already done this--been doing this and... why am I reading this again?)

- The Omnivore's Dilemma: A Natural History of Four Meals by Michael Pollan

- The Year of Living Biblically: One Man's Humble Quest to Follow the Bible as Literally as Possible by A. J. Jacobs

- A New Earth: Awakening to Your Life's Purpose by Eckhart Tolle

- Eat, Pray, Love: One Woman's Search for Everything Across Italy, India and Indonesia by Elizabeth Gilbert

- Eclipse by Stephenie Meyer

- The Zookeeper's Wife: A War Story by Diane Ackerman

- The Pillars of the Earth by Ken Follett

- Atonement by Ian McEwan

- I Like You : Hospitality Under the Influence by Amy Sedaris

- Nineteen Minutes by Jodi Picoult
