It is not too early to start gathering books to read to your children, grand children or your sweetie or even to yourself during Christmas Advent season. Here is a peak at part of my own collection.
As you know I am a huge fan of setting time aside every evening, beginning December first, to read stories and poems that are only read at this time of year. They can be Christmas stories, fairy tales, or other favorite books that might have enchanted you in your childhood.
The key - they are saved only for the most magical season of the year!
You might remember that although reading special books during the holidays has been a tradition in my own family, the idea of creating an Advent reading library belongs to Bethany at The Paper Pony. When I first saw her little basket filled with books, I decided at once to spread the word!
So, in the spirit of spreading the word and getting families started on the process of gathering special books for the winter holidays - here is a little Christmas in July Giveaway
Leave a comment telling me what you think of the idea of creating an Advent reading tradition to have a chance to win this beautiful book.
I realize it is written for young children, but whether or not there are young children living in your home, most of us do have a young child in our lives - a friend, a grand child, a niece, a neighbor. Why not start an advent library for them?
The giveaway is open to all including international readers and entries will be accepted until 6:00 pm Pacific Time July 23rd. The winner will be announced on Christmas in July Eve - July 24th!
Good luck everyone!
GIVEWAY IS CLOSED. THANK YOU ONE AND ALL.

Take a little break from what you are doing!
I was so honored to be asked if I would agree to be interviewed. And then I found myself really enjoying the question/answer process because she asks questions that deserve introspection and require thoughtful consideration.

Christmas presents! But since a couple of these are for people who sometimes read my blog I"m saying no more!
What I CAN say is that I spent a lovely morning with Lindsay at Yarnia; and with her help and her magic yarn making machine, I am now ready to do some serious Christmas knitting!
