I met a friend in Taunton today for some lunch and picked up the last couple of stocking fillers.
And I also bought myself a couple of books.
I always read Charles Dickens’s A Christmas Carol every Christmas but beyond that I don’t do any seasonal reading. It was a blog post by Amy at Love Made My Home some weeks ago where she shared her planned themed Christmas reading that prompted me to buy these when I saw them in Waterstones today.
I could give some old guff about deciding to treat myself because all the work at Christmas usually falls to me, making the house look festive, doing all the shopping – gifts and food, all the planning etc etc but even if I didn’t do all these things I would probably have bought these anyway! They are part of the British Library Classic series and I have found a few from this series in second hand shops so today I treated myself to two new ones – very rare that I buy myself brand new books – and I am really looking forward to them.
I hope you are all having a good week.
