‘Tis the season … to read!

Of course it is the season to celebrate our religion, to spend time with friends and family, to be thankful for what we have, to sit down to good meals, but I can’t help associating the holidays with also squirreling away quiet time to curl up with a good book (or two, or three, or four…)

After all, Christmas is a great time to give and receive books – it’s always been one of my favorite times to accumulate books.

And with that tempting new stash under the tree, why not curl up on the couch with the Christmas lights twinkling and a nice cup of tea to accompany your reading?

Goodness knows, I am usually happy to abandon the computer and all electronic equipment during the holidays in favor of a good book.

What about you, readers? Do you also look forward to more reading time during the holidays? Any good books on your Christmas list this year? Recommendations always welcome! Happy Holiday reading to all!

    As always I bought books for each of my kids and my husband. I hope to get a few too 🙂
    I asked for the latest of my favorite authors, but the list is too long to post!
    I’ll let you know after the holidays.
    For my son who loves dogs and my daughter who loves cats I found novels with dogs and cats as main characters. For my other daughter I bought one about the brain since this is her area of studies.
    My husband collects chefs’ memoirs and he has quite a few now. But the American- born chef David Leibovich who makes his life in Paris just published one about the remodeling of his Parisian flat and it should be a fun read that will remind my husband of the many challenges you encounter when working with contractors in France 🙂
    Merry Christmas to you and family, Kimberley!

      Thoughtful gifts, Evelyne — and I’m sure they will be well loved by your family members. I have some old books I’ve picked up at books stores in London, with inscriptions to family members and loved ones of when they were gifted at Christmas at the end of the 1800s and beginning of the 1900s.Nice to feel a sense of continuity when reading old classics. A very Merry Christmas to you and your family, Evelyne!
