    My #1. Conspicuously missing: Atlas Shrugged audiobook set.
    No child's Christmas is complete without it.
    #2 Unintended Consequences by John Ross
    #3 The Moon Is A Harsh Mistress by Robert Heinlein
    Thanks for posting it, blarman. All good choices. ;^)
    Love the irony that coal is now a desired item in the stocking.

      One I would add (and which I own) is a complete set of the Tuttle Twins books. They're quite a bit easier to digest than Atlas Shrugged, though I'm not going to fault the ambitious for their effort. The Tuttle Twins books are dedicated to various free market influences; one book is dedicated to Ayn Rand herself. They're a great excuse to read to one's children. Just read another last night dedicated to von Mises about subsidies in the market, though it was after my kids were in bed. Next time...

      I loved reading when I was a kid (and still do). I read about half of the entire junior high library including all the sci-fi/fantasy and most of the non-fiction - excluding the encyclopedias. But kids these days are too engrossed with their phones to sit down with a book. Read about Ben Carson's life growing up and he said his entire life changed once he started reading books. Ended up with him becoming a world-renowned neurosurgeon and more.

    OK! OK! If you can't afford to get me the Red Ryder sniper rifle, I'll be happy with the Trump 8 ball. In any case, please stuff my stocking with Ivermectin candy canes (I'm not jabbed).
