Revisiting the Classics- My Holiday Traditions

As the days turn faster and faster towards the end  of the year, I look forward to Thanksgiving and Christmas, but not simply for the joys of food and family. My secret love during these two particularly holidays is that every year I indulge in a ritual of revisiting some of my favorite classic romance novels.

They are the ones tucked away on the highest shelf in my room, their covers faded and spines worn. The pages are yellowed from decades of exposure to the sun. These treasured few books are the ones I inherited from my mother who in turn inherited them from her mother.

Basically I’m like any other avid reader. I have likes and dislikes, favourite authors, series I love and things I won’t touch. I used [...]

‘Tis the Season for Re-Reading

Tagged as Reading

I’ve been on a re-reading binge lately. My TBR pile is ever-increasing – seriously, if it wasn’t 90% digital, I’d be worried about ending up on an episode of Hoarders – but still, when I reach for a book these days, invariably it’s one I’ve read and loved before. My husband doesn’t understand this phenomenon. [...]
