So, here we are again, preparing for another Christmas, wondering who to shop for and what to get them, looking over what they got us last year to make sure we match their efforts with our own, whether generous or paltry. At least, that's what some people do. I've been too busy getting ready for a book table to think about much else, which - since it's still November - is probably for the best.
Well, that book table is coming up, at a local Christmas arts and crafts fair here in Kelowna, BC (for more info, visit my Appearances Page). Loads of books have arrived from the printer, boxes have been wrapped, candy canes have been seasonally presented, and the tree is lit and ready for visitors. Now all I need are readers! Here's hoping that this wintry season, people remember that amidst all the electronics and sugary snacks, some people still like to curl up in front of a warm fire, wrap themselves in a blanket, and read a good book.
