Wishful Wednesdays Meme

Ugh, this post is dreadfully late...but, better late than never. I would like to try doing a weekly meme- shake things up. This one's hosted by mizb17 at Should Be Reading.

What great books have you been wishing for lately?

I have been sinfully coveting an Easton Press edition of Gulliver's Travels by Jonathan Swift. I tried to get a copy on eBay but I was outbid. I got a version of the 3 Musketeers instead, but I still want Gulliver.

Also, I want the last four Harry Potter books, When You Are Engulfed in Flames by David Sedaris, Bonk, Stiff and Spook - all by Mary Roach (I love her books!) and The Pursuit of Happyness by Chris Gardner.
Also, after years of checking them out from the library off and on, I still don't have Brian Green's The Elegant Universe and The Fabric of the Cosmos. Maybe if I own them, I will understand them better.

I also need the following letters in the Sue Grafton alphabet mystery series: A, C, D, F, G, H, I and M.

Alright. Got that, Santa?
Better have the reindeer lifting weights.

I haven't read Gulliver's Travels in the longest time. I have to go and see if Easton Press editions are special (I'm kinda ignorant when it comes to actual editions and publishers :( )
Also, thank you bunches for putting my button on your blog, that's very, very sweet of you.
