Merry Christmas everyone! I hope you are all having a wonderful holiday. Mine has been absolutely lovely with lots of books, yarn, and all sorts of wonderful goodies under the tree for me.
It’s been a busy holiday season for me, with little to no time for reading, so I decided to give myself a Christmas treat and spend an evening reading The Life and Adventures of Santa Claus by L. Frank Baum in front of the Christmas tree. It was my first time reading this delightful fairy story and I have to say that I enjoyed it very much. It was a quick read – it took the same amount of time to get through as a plate of cookies and a couple of cups of cocoa – but it was light and charming and the lovely illustrations by Mary Cowles Clark added to the charm and whimsy of the story.
I am about halfway through J.R.R. Tolkien’s Letters From Father Christmas, which I am also enjoying very much, and I can easily see both books becoming part of my family’s holiday traditions. Do you have a favorite Christmas book or story that you read every year? I’d love to hear about it in the comments.
Now if you will excuse me, I want to get some more reading in before I head off to a holiday gathering with my family. Until next time, have a very Merry Christmas and a Bookish New Year!
