Gift ideas

Thanks for wanting to buy me something nice1. To make sure we both get the most out of this experience please read to the end of this section.

These lists are not an exhaustive and I love to be surprised with gifts that don’t take up space for long (food, tickets to the theatre, experiences).

Due to my interests most of the things I want are still books2. Usually reference books3 that I like to bookmark and flip through quickly. I have a preference for hardcover over paperback, and if I list it on the wishlist I would prefer the ebook4.

If you want to buy me an ebook please use my Kindle wishlist.

But if you’re different, and you want to buy me a thing. Something I can touch and hold and curse your name for when I move house and have to pack it5. For people like you I maintain a list of physical things at The links to Amazon and other sites are just for information, you can purchase physical items anywhere.
