Abby & I would like to wish all visitors to I Prefer Reading a very Merry Christmas. As you can see from these photos, Abby has started relaxing already. It’s a beautiful summer day here in Melbourne, crisp this morning & a warm, sunny afternoon.
I’ve been baking cheese & spinach bread to take to my sister’s for Christmas lunch tomorrow. I’ve done a little housework, organized a few things for tomorrow & Abby has been keeping an eye on my progress. Best of all, I don’t have to go anywhere near a shop of any description. I’m listening to Annie Lennox & Bryn Terfel’s new Christmas CDs which arrived in the mailbox today, at the last possible moment for festive listening & later today I’ll be going to a family carol service with friends, a Christmas tradition now for over 10 years.
Over the next week I’ll be posting about my books of the year. I usually do a Top 10 but this year, I think I’ll copy Cornflower’s terrific idea of listing my top books in categories like mysteries, history, classics & biography.
Merry Christmas everyone. I hope the weather in Europe & the US doesn’t stop you being where you want to be this Christmas.
