Guest Post at I’m Lost in Books!

Howdy Bookworms! I’m guest posting today over at I’m Lost in Books. Becca is running a glorious Holiday Extravaganza and I seized the opportunity to evangelize on the glories of Christmas tree ornaments. You should go check it out. There are pictures, and Crazy Aunt Katie is on full display. *P.S. If you’re doing holiday shopping this Cyber Monday and you go through a link on this site to Amazon,… Read more »

Haul Out The Holly: A Redbird Christmas by Fannie Flagg

Ho ho ho, my little Bookworms! (I know not all of you celebrate Christmas, so on behalf of humanity, I apologize for you having to deal with this craziness every December. However… Saying “ho ho ho” is humorous on a number of levels, so I’m standing by my greeting.) I’ve mentioned before that I love Fannie Flagg. It’s sort of a guilty pleasure thing, because I am fully aware that… Read more »
