I know, Halloween is just a few days away (wahoo!) for those of us in the U.S. This no time for stressing about holiday cookies and stocking stuffers. Rather, it’s time to be stressing about costumes! So I’ll be brief.
This week I’m going to start browsing for a book to give my honey for the holidays (lately he’s been into historic/political, like Band of Brothers and Charlie Wilson’s War, any recommendations?), and browsing for other book and movie gifts. I noticed a few years ago on Christmas day that after you’ve unwrapped gifts, and helped kids assemble their toys, it’s so very nice it is to have a fresh, unopened book to dive into. So I’ll be hosting a couple book giveaways this week to help you with that. And if you have some ideas about books to give, I’d love for you to share this week. I also like one of my readers’ ideas to take a little time this week to read for myself. I’m determined to do just that. (If you missed the full checklist, get it here.)
