Happy Christmas, book lovers! I hope you’re enjoying the holidays with your loved ones.
Mine’s especially bookish this year. I didn’t have time to put up a tree (remember last year’s HP Christmas tree?), but a friend (thanks, Carl!) got me an ornament tree so I put it to good use on top of one of my bookshelves — I’ve always wanted a Nutcracker Christmas tree!
Santa brought me lots of bookish presents, too. Lookee!

Christmas isn’t over yet, though. I have some goodies to share — watch out for the giveaways in the coming week! :)
In the meantime, enjoy your holidays, and to borrow Tiny Tim’s words: God bless us every one!
