The Elf on the Shelf: A Christmas Tradition | Carol V. Aebersold, Chanda A. Bell
post image

#wintergames #TeamNutcracker #holidaytradition Meet Pete! This little guy has been coming with Santa on St. Nicks eve for many years, before it was a “thing”. We have had some fun with Pete but my kids, 14 and 19, are beyond toilet papering the tree - this year he‘s providing a silly or sarcastic quote each day on the mirror for a little fun holiday spirit. Dude is a lot of work so I‘m glad to have him kick back and be a smarty pants this year. 😂

A Christmas Carol | Charles Dickens
post image

I attended a small plate Old English dinner tonight with my mom and saw a rendition of The Christmas Carol put on in my local community theater. They served us in character. It was fabulous! #wintergames #TeamNutcracker and where does this fit a play made from a book? I hope it becomes a #holidaytradition

LiteraryinLititz What a creative event! 2d
Bookworm54 I would say it falls into the whole holiday movie, book to movie point system, so 11 points? What do you think @Clwojick @StayCurious 1d
Bookworm54 I‘m going with 11 :) 14h

Alfie the Holiday Cat | Rachel Wells
post image

#holidaytradition #TeamNutcracker #wintergames Kevin makes me a little nervous as he climbed the tree last year, his 1st Christmas. He seems to have taken the high road this year, so I can once again enjoy the tree. We even put ornaments up, only 3-4 are down daily 😂 It was not Christmas when I was without a kitty under my tree. It was a chosen spot for my late buddies , Ernest and Jasper, for 23 years so this is nostalgic for me.🎄

Beatlefan129 What a cutie ❤️😻 2d
Bookworm54 Gorgeous kitty :) 21 points 2d

peaknit @JenReadsAlot Thank you!! 8 or 9 ornaments were on the floor today. Progress not perfect😂 (edited) 2d

#teamNutcracker #wintergames #impulseread Finished a holiday read. I‘m not a whodunit girl but it was cleverly tied up in the end. It was not holidayish though, just murder 😂 This was not on the TBR, I saw Christmas and was sold.

Starless Sea | Erin Morgenstern
post image
Pickpick

Why I loved this book “the son of the fortune teller rows a boat across an ocean made of paper”. Of course he did, only in the fairy tale magic of Morgenstern. I did not understand it all but the delightful details helped me conjure rich visuals, I felt like I was there. I will read this again (or listen perhaps?) when I have more headroom, as in not before the holidays. 🐝 🗡 🔑

First post for me on #TeamNutcracker for the #Wintergames... @Bookworm54 @Clwojick @StayCurious 1. I have read 66 books so far. 2. My goal is 70, so I should make it 3. I like to read holiday fluff leading up to Christmas and a yearly re-read of Sugar Queen by Sarah Addison Allen 4. Winter...it‘s generally not my favorite but I do enjoy looking at holiday lights on my walks with my dog and more self care this time of year. ❤️🌲

Bookworm54 Holiday lights are great. I‘m amazed how many people go all out. It‘s not so much of a thing in the UK but there are still some nice ones. 26 points :) 6d
peaknit @Bookworm54 We have a house in our town where the yard is overfilled with light up inflatables...insane🤪 I prefer twinkling lights. A yeti as big as a house is alarming haha!! 6d

To finish or not to finish...that is the question. I‘m not sure this time of year, when my mind is racing with a “to do” list, is right for me and this book. 🤔

emz711 It is incredible but you definitely need some quiet time to soak it in 1w
peaknit @emz711 that is exactly what I am thinking, on one hand I‘m loving the magic but on the other...squirrel! I can‘t focus 😂 I wonder what the audio would be like, I enjoyed the narrator on The Night Circus so much. (edited) 1w

peaknit @emz711 I finished. It truly was so rich and delicious, I just needed to commit and push everything else away. 6d

vivastory @Flaneurette Midnight is still on my TBR. I've been meaning to read it forever, I might have to do so before the end of the month. Italy is definitely on my travel bucket list. I feel like Preston really captured the city well in this one. Looking forward to your thoughts! 1mo
Cinfhen Me too about Midnight @vivastory !!!! I smell another buddy read coming on 😜 1mo

vivastory @peaknit @Cinfhen Sounds good, if not we can maybe do it the week after? I love true crime. I think it's my favorite nonfiction genre. 1mo
Cinfhen Ok @peaknit @vivastory I‘ll let you know when my copy comes in!! And yes, True crime is quickly becoming a favorite genre of mine too. Especially when it reads like a fiction novel. 1mo
peaknit @Cinfhen and @vivastory I‘m on the holds list! 🙌🏻 looks good to get it soon. But the new Erin Morgenstern is waiting for me so there‘s that...😂 1mo
vivastory @peaknit I still need to read 😬 1mo
peaknit @vivastory I loved It so much! The British accent on the audio is 👍🏻 1mo
Cinfhen Lucky you!!! I have a feeling I won‘t be getting to the new Morgenstern for a long time 1mo
peaknit @Cinfhen I‘m worried😂 first world problems - too much to read. 1mo
peaknit @Cinfhen @vivastory I picked this back up overnight because it is on my kindle, it‘s really gaining momentum in the second half. But every time I read “picnicking friends” I giggle to myself. I‘m about halfway through our buddy read as well. Lots to discuss if I can keep it straight 😂 (edited) 2w
Cinfhen I know, those “picnicking friends “ should take a trip to Savanna 😂😂🤣😂 2w
