Here’s hoping you have a wonderful holiday filled with reading

Are you looking for additional books to read by the fire?  

I’ve found a new favorite book on writing. This is not a quick read, but it’s good information about the style of writing. Click on the image to read an excerpt from Amazon.com.

A couple of favorites I’m going to revisit. These images will take you to Amazon where you can read more about the books. 

      

 

For entertainment, I’m gonna continue with the Outlander series.

Outlander Series (8 Book Series) by Diana Gabaldon

I’m ready for book #6

What books are you reading this holiday?

Have you finished a really good one recently?

I’m always looking for a great book, so share.

Are you ready to celebrate the holidays?

Got all your shopping done?

Are you a planner or one of those last-minute grab and go type of shoppers?

If you’re like me and fall somewhere in the middle better hit the stores soon. Thank goodness for Amazon!

My shopping is almost complete. Only a couple more to find and a couple more I’m waiting on to be delivered.

But if you’re still looking for a great gift, remember books give all year-long! 

 

I hope however you celebrate this time of year, your holiday is filled with joy and wonder.

So, I’m not going to flood your inbox with posts you probably have little time to read. You’ll still hear from me, from time to time. Because I’m going to give myself a few days off around Christmas. But don’t you worry, I’ll be back with lots of energy and more stuff after the hustle and bustle of the holidays wind down.

I’d love to know…

More shopping to do? Or all finished?

Do you have any special plans for the holidays?

Do you want to make your own greeting giphy?

It’s a lot easier than you think.

You can use your own short video of family, friends, decorations or just about anything.

But if you don’t have a great video or don’t have the time, use a video from Pixabay.

Here is how step by step:

  1. Save your video.
  2. Go to giphy.com and click on create
  3. Type in your caption, and tags.
  4. Select private or public
  5. Click on Create
  6. Click “Download” to save to your computer

That’s all there is to it! Check out my little tutorial for tips.
