Christmas Book Haul

Hello!

So this Christmas I had some books for Christmas! I had three books and they are absolutely stunning.

I collect the De Luxe Editions by Harper Collins of Tolkien’s works and my husband very kindly bought me Letters from Father Christmas to add to my collection. In fact it was my husband who started me collecting this set as he gave me The Unfinished Tales for my Christmas present for our first Christmas together.

The next two books are by the same author Charles Van Sandwyk. These two books are Folio Society editions that my in-laws very kindly gave me for Christmas and I absolutely love them especially Letters from Fairyland. The other book is a collection of stories about fairyland called How to See Fairies.

There are my beautiful books!

I really do love beautiful books and that is why I generally end up with more than one edition of a favourite book.

Happy Reading.

Happy Christmas!

HAPPY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE!

I hope everyone has a wonderful day today and you all get some wonderful bookish gifts.

I leave you with a carol that is always sang on Christmas morning.

 

O Come, All Ye Faithful

O come, all ye faithful,

Joyful and triumphant,

Come ye, O come ye to Bethlehem;

Come and behold Him,

Born the King of angels:

O come, let us adore Him,

O come, let us adore Him,

O come, let us adore Him,

Christ the Lord!

 

God of God,

Light of light,

Lo! He abhors not the Virgin’s womb;

Very God,

Begotten, not created:

O come, let us adore Him…

 

Sing, choirs of angels,

Sing in exultation,

Sing, all ye citizens of heaven above;

Glory to God

In the highest:

O come, let us adore Him…

 

Yea, Lord, we greet Thee,

Born this happy morning;

Jesus, to Thee be glory given;

Word of the Father,

Now in flesh appearing:

O come, let us adore Him…

 

J. F. Wade (c.1711-1786)

 

Happy Christmas

Christmas Book Related Gifts

Well it is the third day of Christmas today and my husband and myself are having a relaxing day to recover from a busy Christmas and Boxing Day. So I thought I would show my readers the bookish presents I received from family and friends.

The Penguin Classics Book was on my wish list and my wonderful husband bought it me for Christmas. I can not wait to look through all the books Penguin has published over the years and see what books I should read next.

Tequila Mockingbird is a literary themed cocktail book that I am very keen to try out.

My Best friend bought me the 100 Books Scratch off Bucket List Poster, that has quite a few books on that I have never read. I would love to get this framed once I have completed it. I think my 2019 will have some fun reading based on this list. My friend also bought me a very cute tea strainer in the shape of a book, I love tea and I love books so this combination is amazing!

My sister in laws got me the bag, reading log and Bronte book. I love keeping a book log so I am very excited to start this log in 2019.

Finally my sister got me the Gino cookbook so hopefully 2019 will be filled full of yummy food!

I hope everyone got good presents this Christmas and that you are still enjoying the festive spirit.

Happy Reading!
