Now the next thing on our Christmas List is our Christmas Book List! I had not forgotton.
This year, because last years list got SO BIG and SO LONG (like many of you I read – and listen to audio books a lot so I too have heaps of favourites), I think that this year we will limit ourselves to TWO personal favourites – it can be a novel, or cookbook, or nonfiction, or fluffy historical romance, audio book or book of art – any book at all but one we met for the first time THIS YEAR in 2016. Not your favourite book of all time just two of your favourite books from your 2016 reading list.
And let us know the genre and a why you recommend we read it.
Have a scroll through the comments and if your favourite book is already there SECOND it, or third it or fourth it. This way we will get a really good idea of what everyone is reading (or listening to) and you get to name two MORE books in your own comment if your first favourite is already in the list.
I am never without a book. Often I am listening to a book (while I do housework or cook) and then read another book (usually on my kindle in winter when it is hard to get to the shops) before I go to bed. So I get through a fair number of books. And I often listen to podcasts when I am cleaning in the barn but that is a completely new discussion!
I love our annual Fellowship Book List. Sound like fun? Good – because – I need some good reading material for my travels. I particularly need a good airplane book. (Why airplane book is not a genre I do not know!).
I will collate the list tonight and publish it for you tomorrow so you can print it and use it as a book mark or give it away during the holiday season.
If you run your own book list with your own readers at your blog be sure to link it back to The Kitchens Garden (I will note it at the bottom of my post the day I receive the link) so that we can all come and look at your list as well. Your own readers might have some new ones too!
The roads were frozen sheets of ice out here in the country yesterday and for two days we have not even received our mail. The country roads are too dangerous. I hope they are better today because Lori the Pig Lady is coming to collect the little barrow. I am glad he is going to a good home but I have to admit I wish he were not going at all. He has been a perfect little house pig. Boo and I will miss him awfully.
Much love, have a lovely day.
