  1. I had SUCH a hard time choosing between the Pixar art books. I really wanted all of them, but at $40 each that’d be a big chunk of my prize and I couldn’t justify it. (Very pragmatic, me.) They’re so lovely, though!

    AND I DIDN’T EVEN SEE THAT SOCK MONKEY BOOK. Oh my GOD it is so cute. :U

  2. This is my dream list! The ‘Art of’ books are A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!! You have some really fun cook books too. Good luck!!
