Secret Santa

Garp83's Secret Santa is Tropical-Library. Help Tropical-Library pick the right book.


EllsieFind: I wonder if Garp would like The Underground Railroad by Colson Whitehead. LibraryThing suggests he borrow it from me. (Sat, 01 Dec 2018 20:44:12 -0500)

Peace2: Based on Garp's liking ancient history, archaeology and paleontology, I'd suggest The Incredible Human Journey by Dr Alice Roberts or Genghis Khan and the Making of the Modern World by Jack Weatherford. (Sun, 02 Dec 2018 14:42:28 -0500)

Tropical-Library: Thanks for the suggestions -- hope you enjoy these Stan. (Sun, 02 Dec 2018 18:13:37 -0500)

lorannen: Removed Mammoths & Mastodons of the Ice Age (9781770853157) due to budget. Went with Santa's alternate pick, Fossil Forensics: Separating Fact from Fantasy in Paleontology (9781944918101).

Done. (Sat, 08 Dec 2018 20:31:59 -0500)
