Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas to everyone who visits I Prefer Reading. Thank you for dropping by & leaving comments. I’ll be thinking about my Books of the Year over the next few days, posting my lists & enjoying reading everyone else’s. I’ll also have another list of the books I didn’t quite get to in 2012. I’ll probably also make my usual New Year’s Resolution to stop buying books for a while & read the hundreds I already have.

I hope you all have a lovely, peaceful day. After lunch with my family, Lucky, Phoebe & I will be settling down to watch Scrooge with Alistair Sim or maybe A Christmas Carol with Michael Hordern or Patrick Stewart or George C Scott… It’s not an easy decision to make. I failed to get a photo of the girls lolling around the Christmas tree so here’s my favourite pictures of them both (separately, of course) as they wish you all a Merry Christmas.

  1. Best wishes for a Merry Christmas and a wonderful New Year! Thanks for sharing your life and your cats. As soon as my husband gets up, there will be presents for our three cats. I think they enjoy opening them as much as they do the toys!


  2. Thank you Joan. I hope you & your family & the cats have a lovely New Year. Phoebe enjoyed playing with the wrapping paper from my presents yesterday, she loved the scrunchy noise it made.


  3. I watched Alistair Sim again last night & cried at the end as always. I love the way they use Barbara Ellen in the movie & the scene when Scrooge goes to Fred's for dinner always makes me cry. I hope you enjoyed your umpteenth viewing.


  4. Such pretty girls and they look quite happy and relaxed. I hope your day was the same and that you had a really great Christmas! I want to try and read more from my stacks next year, too, and am thinking also about my faves–looking forward to seeing your lists! 🙂


  5. I think my comment was 'eaten' so will try again. Hope you had a really lovely holiday–as relaxed as your kitties look! I want to try and read more from my own stacks next year, too. And I'm thinking about my faves as well–looking forward to seeing your lists!


  6. Merry Christmas, Dani. I think these photos express their personalities. Phoebe is completely relaxed & is obviously entitled to any attention that comes her way. Lucky is more nervous & unsure but appreciates her comfort. We had a lovely Christmas & are enjoying a week off before I go back to work.


  7. Merry Christmas Lynne. Are you surprised that Magnus loves turkey? I think he's definitely in the Phoebe class of cats – knows his worth & accepts all offerings as his due! I'm looking forward to another year of blogging & reading everyone else's blogs as well.
