Lucky, Phoebe & I would like to wish everyone who visits I Prefer Reading a very Merry Christmas & a peaceful & Happy New Year. As the weather warms up, the girls are finding new, cooler places to relax & sleep. Lucky is fond of the rug in the study. She like to stretch out there while I type (she’s there now).
Phoebe likes to be up off the ground. The chair in my study is good,
but a pile of shopping bags on the kitchen bench (I know, she’s not meant to be up there!) is even better.
This time last year it was my dear Abby wishing you all a Merry Christmas. She’s still much missed but I’m very lucky (no pun intended) to have found these two sweeties to love & keep me company.
Coming up tomorrow will be another favourite Christmas carol & next week, along with a couple of reviews of books just read, will be my Top 10 lists of the year. I have a Top 10 of fiction & non-fiction but it’s not set in stone yet. There’s still a week to go & lots of reading time as I don’t go back to work until the New Year. I’m just about to start Penelope Lively’s new book, How It All Began. She’s one of my favourite authors so it might push its way into the Top 10 if it lives up to expectations. Then, just for something completely different, there will also be a list of books that I’m sure would have made my Top 10 this year if I’d gotten around to reading them. Maybe I should make a New Year’s resolution to read them sooner rather than later? Merry Christmas everyone!
