It has been a flurry over here at Breakeven Books. We are getting prepared for the holiday season and are busy buying Christmas gifts, baking goodies and finishing up all the projects of the year.
And the best part about the holidays?! More time to read 🙂 I already have a list of 3 books I want to try and finish over the holidays. But I will still be saving time to do the regular Christmas traditions with the family such as driving around looking at Christmas lights with a thermos of cider, listening to Christmas music, and watching Christmas movies (especially It’s A Wonderful Life on December 24th).
I also get a week off of my full-time job so that is nice. Nothing like a little R&R over the holidays.
Does your family have any holiday traditions that you partake in each year? What are they? Tell me in the comments below 🙂
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays bookworms.
Merry Christmas Bookworms!! Happy Holidays or whatever you prefer 🙂 I have been catching up on all my favourite Christmas traditions like watching White Christmas and It’s a Wonderful Life, reading A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens, and even going to a Christmas Eve service with Mom and Dad. Our tree looks really nice (Mom decorated it, I am at my parents for the holidays).
Tomorrow morning I will be on my way to Fort Frances to bring some Christmas Cheer to my good friend Jordan who had to work on Christmas. He is a paramedic so he has to make sure everyone else is being safe over the holidays and give up his own to do so. My flight is at 7am tomorrow but I have a new book to keep me entertained for the journey there and back on New Years Eve.
Also Max says Merry Christmas too. As you can see we both just got out of bed 😛
Well have a great Christmas Day everyone! Eat lots of turkey and drink lots of spirits and keep the good cheer a flowing.
Talk to you soon bookworms.
I have been very busy the past week doing Christmas shopping and hosting Ugly Christmas Sweater Parties and whatnot (are they truly ugly if we all wear them in defiance and we rock it?). This is a crazy post where I tell you all that has happened in the past week.
So we are doing Secret Santa at work and I bought my coworker the coolest present but I can’t say what it is because they might read my blog (I don’t know if they do but will not take the chance :P). Let’s just say it involves your head and warmth…and is nerdy. Ok that’s all you get.
I also have been chatting with an author and have maybe got my first victim for an author interview! I’m not sure how that will go because I have never conducted an interview for an author before but we will see 🙂
In the meantime, I picked up Simon vs. The Homo Sapiens Agenda because of a recommendation and have been reading that at the same time as my other book. I do have to say that is is very well written and I am enjoying it.
Let me know what you guys are reading and what your plans are for the holidays in the comments below! I want to know all about your lives 😀
Talk to you later bookworms.
Busy Busy Busy. I want to read and have no time with big deadlines at work and dog sitting this week. But to be fair, Marley is adorable!
Hopefully I can get to reading more this week but in the meantime, if anyone wants me to do a guest blog post for them and share one of their posts on my blog (as long as its about books) then send me a message and I will give you some recognition 🙂
I don’t even have that many followers lol just sharing the love and being part of the blogging community. Oh also, check out these socks by my co-worker. She is in a very festive spirit this month.
Ok hopefully talk soon about the book I am reading. Peace out bookworms.
This week has been amazing and super stressful at the same time. We moved buildings for work so it was heavily taxing for everyone involved. However, I received some really awesome bookish goodies in the mail so that made up for the stress 🙂
Thank you to Machpherson Publishing for sending me some books to review for them which I will get to as soon as I am done my review for STORGY!
And then on top of that, I received a card from Kathy @ Books and Munches from our Christmas Card Exchange! It was everything I could have hoped for in a nerdy card 😛 and she made damn sure that I never forget about Dobby the house elf again…. 😀 (Best bookmark ever).
I have some reviews coming up and stayed tuned on the Instagram as I am doing a Harry Potter Photo Challenge for the month of December.
My friend Elizabeth showed me this cool morphing mug that changes colour with heat and reveals the Marauders Map so I had to show you guys. Here it is along with other cool Harry Potter stuff 😛
I wish I could buy all this things to satisfy the inner nerd in me. Anyways, have to get back to reading but talk to you soon bookworms!
Well it is nearing the end of November and the Christmas season is upon us. I have so much Christmas shopping to do and everytime I am at the mall, all I want to do is go to Coles. When I am asked what I want for Christmas, my answer is always the same: Books (or gift cards to get more books)!
This year I decided to join Kathy @ Books and Munches in her Christmas card exchange. Last night I packaged up the Christmas Card and will be sending it to one lucky book blogger who will find a nice little gift inside (plus I added a Spiderman sticker because why not :P).
The cards I got were pretty cool and very Canadian.
You can find lots of other Christmas cards options on Amazon:
I am very excited for this book blogger to receive this card and hopefully send me a message. It’s really cool to know that through this blog, I can connect with other bloggers from all over the world and share cool content with them. If you ever get a chance to do a card exchange like this, I strongly suggest trying it out. It’s perfect for an introvert because you get to communicate with someone else through a gift without going anywhere.
Stay tuned guys and gals because I will be announcing the November Giveaway winner in 2 days and I have some goodies I received in the mail that I will be showing you! Talk to you soon bookworms.
