Book Blogger Hop and Coming Soon, 26/11/10

Book Blogger Hop

Hello and happy Friday. For many of you I suspect that the weekend is already here, as yesterday was Thanksgiving in the USA, so I hope those who celebrated had an enjoyable and relaxing day. Over here it's business as usual, but I've taken the week off work to recharge my batteries before plunging back into the madness that is retail at Christmastime. But now it's time for the Book Blogger Hop, hosted by Jennifer at Crazy For  Books.

Book Blogger Hop


"What is your favorite book cover?"
Regular readers of this blog will probably have noticed that I am a notorious cover-judger. There are so many books that call to me with beautiful designs, but the absolute favourite (at the moment, anyway) is the hardback of Cecelia Ahern's The Book of Tomorrow. Isn't it beautiful?

 

Coming Soon

Believe it or not, I've got near the bottom of my immediate to-read pile, with only three books left from my extravagant splurges at the beginning of the month. I do have other unread books, however, and aim to work a few of them into December's reading. I also get paid shortly, and then I'll allow myself to shop once more. I've promised myself a copy of Sarah Ockler's latest, Fixing Delilah and as it'll be December next week there are some books that just have to be re-read before Christmas, including A Christmas Carol, The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe and Winter Holiday, as well as sundry other classic children's books with wintery settings. I intend to reread L.M. Montgomery's books and the Harry Potter series soon, and 2011 will bring the Back to the Classics challenge hosted at Sarah Reads Too Much.

What books do other bloggers consider required Christmas reading?

  1. That is definitely a lovley cover, what with the layer being peeled back to show a second pretty cover. Good luck with The Lion, The Witch, and the Wardrobe! I don't read any particular books at Christmas time, but I do try to watch Christmas-y movies. :-)

  7. This week's Book Blogger Hop question WAS a tough one! It took me two solid minutes to come up with an answer!
