Christmas is nearly here (only three more sleeps!)! Hooray! I simultaneously both love and hate Christmas, as I imagine a lot of people do. I love it because the day itself is always nice and relaxed, and you get to spend time with your family, but the lead up to it can be super stressful what with all the Christmas shopping and preparation to do (and as a postwoman, my work gets much busier over Christmas, what with all the Christmas cards and parcels!). Not to mention you always get that slump afterwards where you’re kind of like…so that’s over…. Read more »

Picture Left: Keyring from hottopic.com, Scarf from amazon.co.uk, T-shirt by Out of Print, from truffleshuffle.com. In theory, buying a Christmas present for an avid reader should be easy – just buy them a book, right? Unfortunately, it’s not that simple, unless they’ve told you exactly what they want! The problem with most bookworms is, that they usually already own a lot of books.

If they are anything like me, their bookcase will… Read more »
