Bet you thought I'd forgotten about this today, huh? (Or maybe just hoped, I don't know, HEY, WHY ARE YOU SO MEAN?!) I hadn't forgotten but was kind of lacking the time to blog today because I spent all of it with my family (yay!), my computer stayed at my house... There wasn't time. But I turned it on even though I wanted to go to bed because I'm just that dedicated to the cause/because my dad and sister both bugged me about it and, hey kids, peer pressure works.
SO! Now that I've got you here, I must have some interesting things to say, right?
Actually, I've just remembered. It was watching half of The Muppet's Christmas Carol yesterday. That's what really did it.
Along these lines, then, I wanted to ask you about Christmas reading, mostly, do you do anything special? And also, please tell me about some awesome Christmas books? The deal is this- I finished a measly three books in November (I know. I don't even know what) and I feel like I'm just starting to get some reading mojo back, and I really really want to do some seasonal reading. Last year for most of the Christmas period I was reading Nelson Mandela's autobiography, which was actually a really good read but possibly not the most seasonally appropriate one ever. But then, I also read The Christmas Mystery by Jostein Gaarder which was totally seasonally appropriate and it made me feel happy inside.
So. Seasonal reading, what can you recommend? I'm going to go ahead and tell YOU all to read Little Women, even though I'm probably not going to read it myself (well... maybe just the Christmas chapters...) I am going to reread A Christmas Carol and the other Dickens Christmas stories in my edition of it, and also Nos4r2 by Joe Hill which says it's about Christmas on the cover... But what else should I be reading? Any recommendations would be appreciated, and if there's a Christmas film I should be watching, then you can totally tell me about that too (although if it's Elf, I'm waaay ahead of you).
After all, tis the season and whatnot.
