Merry Christmas everyone

Down in Alexandra for a few days visiting family, but that didn’t stop me creating my now-traditional Bookcrossing Christmas tree last night. It’s just in a slightly different location than usual 🙂

Mum (TopKat) came and helped me hang the books, and was terrified we were going to get in trouble for it, especially when a woman came out of a nearby building and asked what we were doing. Mum was ready to run for it, but it turned out the woman was just curious, and when I explained bookcrossing to her, she thought it was a wonderful idea (she didn’t take any of the books though).

Just to bore you, the full list of books we hung (I couldn’t find enough Christmas-themed books, so I cheated and included a few summer-themed ones as well):

Firefly Summer by Maeve Binchy
Christmas Cooking
Stories for Summer
The Adventure of the Christmas Pudding by Agatha Christie
A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens
A Highland Christmas by MC Beaton
Midsummer Meeting by Elvi Rhodes
Beyond Summer by Karen Young
The Summer of the Swans by Betsy Byars
The Fifth Day of Christmas by Betty Neels
The Christmas Craft Book by Thomas Berger
Summertime by Maureen McCoy
This Year It Will Be Different by Maeve Binchy
Tomorrow When It’s Summer by Helen Brown
Little Benjamin and the First Christmas by Betty Forrell
My Book About Christmas by Joan Gale Thomas
The North Pole Express by Ryan Willms
The Christmas Story by Jane Werner
Cheltenham’s Party by Jan Wahl
A Redbird Christmas by Fannie Flagg
Jesus’ Christmas Party by Nicholas Allan

We went back down this morning and all of the books were gone, so hopefully whoever got them enjoyed their Christmas surprise 🙂

Anyway, better get back to the rellies (I’m at mum and stepfather’s place, and stepbrother and stepsister are here, plus stepfather’s mother and aunt, so it’s a bit of a big family Christmas).

Hope you’re all having (or about to have, depending on which side of the planet you’re on) a good Christmas!
