Happy December everyone! Welcome to today’s Dreamy December Days Daily Challenge. For Day 1, tell us your Bookish Christmas Wishes. You can answer any of the following questions: What are the bookish merchandise or books that you would really love to receive this Christmas?

In the land of extravagant:
House of Mystery: The Magic Science of David P. Abbott (Volume #1)House of Mystery: The Magic Science of David P. Abbott (Volume #2)
I’m working on a novel about David Abbott and Joseffy and this is an elusive set of sources. Poking around the internet, I can’t even find a copy for up for auction at the moment. The deluxe set includes a CD with film footage of Mr. Abbott and Joseffy, which would be pretty awesome to see.

On the more reasonable end:
A History of Ghosts: The True Story of Séances, Mediums, Ghosts, and Ghostbusters Art and Artifice and Other Essays of Illusion Learned Pigs and Fireproof Women Magic: 1400s-1950s
Been reading a lot of non-fiction. About magic, magicians, spiritualism, and other related subjects. The list of books I still want to read on these subjects is still happily long.
