I feel like I‘ve been gone for ages and it‘s only been a few days. Thought I‘d show you my haul from Christmas Day. Think I did well. Now it‘s time to get started getting ready for 2019 challenges. Other than Goodreads I am notoriously bad at challenges. I do, however, enjoy a good buddyread! On to 2019!!!

nudibranch Yes! Wind-Up Bird! Yes!! ❤ 13mo

TrishB @Balibee146 Sansa‘s in the dog house! Her least fav dogs walked past barking this morning and she attacked the window- which is where the tree is! Knocked tree over - broke in two, everything everywhere.....🐶 not sure what she was more frightened of - the tree falling or me yelling! 🎅🎄 13mo
Balibee146 @TrishB oh no.... Cos more work fixing it at this time of year is just what you need.... Sansa must have been channelling her inner cat 🐈 xx 13mo

The last of my gifts for my awesome pen pals will be arriving in a couple of day, and I‘m so excited to get them shipped off! Now to alcohol with a glass of wine & watch some holiday movies... @Alicia @The_Literary_Jedi You should have surprises coming soon!!! (assuming amazon isn‘t a jerk)💚💚💚

The_Literary_Jedi Yay! In between making cookies, I‘m wrapping up yours too! 😄 14mo

NovelGirl82 @The_Literary_Jedi Yay!!! I have yours in & ready to ship. I was part of the “Texas snowpocalypse” that just hit, so I haven‘t made it to the post office since it came in. I‘ll get it sent out this week! 14mo
The_Literary_Jedi I got a notice your packages should start arriving to you this weekend and over a couple days following 😁😁😁🎄🎄🎄 13mo
NovelGirl82 @The_Literary_Jedi Awesome!! I‘m going to the post office tomorrow or Saturday. We‘re finally all melted off here! Lol! 13mo
NovelGirl82 I made it to UPS today!!! @Alicia Your package should arrive Wednesday & @The_Literary_Jedi yours should arrive Thursday! Of course, there‘s no guarantee this close to Christmas, but fingers crossed!! 13mo

I know it's a bit early (ok, a lot early lol) but these are the books I've collected for my nephews for Christmas. I always give them a stack of books every year. Pleased with the variety this year. ❤💚

Chasing_Pages Such a cute idea! I always get my niece and nephew books! 1y

And my gifts from my brother... ❤️❤️ He knows my #designerpurselove lol

rubyslippersreads A gorgeous purse (in my favorite color) that looks big enough to hold a book. 😊 2y
Debiw781 @rubyslippersreads my fave color too ❤️ And big enough to hold a book is a requirement 😂 2y

Littens, I‘m looking for a gift for an office gift exchange (limit is $20), any ideas??
Caveat is that it‘s not for someone specific, we bring a wrapped gift and those who participate get to select a gift. #help

Wife Cookie cutters, sprinkles, cookie mix and Christmas potholders?🎄 2y
laurenbescoby I have the above book and it amuses and interests all who read it! 2y

Rachel.Rencher I have a bunch of old men in my office, so I bought an electric beer finder. It's a beer coozy that has a remote, and when you press it the coozy burps. Definitely for a select audience. 😂🍺 2y
AlaMich I have an external battery for my cell phone. You can get them in all different powers, but I think the smallest ones would be under $20 and would be enough to “top off” your phone when you need it and can‘t get to an outlet. I LOVE mine and it‘s a lifesaver!! 2y
KrystleTheBookSlayer Sometimes I just like to put together a kind of gift basket with theme like spa day, movie night, fun and games, cozy winter theme, baking theme, etc. 2y
MamaGina Candles, everyone enjoys a lovely holiday scented candle. Also picture frames, we never seem to buy them for ourselves but we all have photos we'd like to display. 🤓 2y
SilversReviews All great suggestions. 2y
riversong153 @Wife @miralunasbooknook @Rachel.Rencher @AlaMich @Krystle1 @MamaGina Thanks for your suggestions. It‘s so hard to read the folks in my office! You‘ve given me some good ones to ponder. I have to buy before next weekend! 2y
rubyslippersreads Starbucks gift card? 2y
swishandflick I'd get a nice mug with some "gourmet" (something more like ghirardelli than swiss miss) hot chocolate! (edited) 2y

britt_brooke @JamieArc I could live in that store. 💚 2y
JamieArc @britt_brooke Me too. Someone was asking me what I wanted for Christmas and I told them literally anything at World Market would be great 😍 2y
Avanders ♥️💚🎄💚♥️ 2y
MinDea Too bad you didn't live near us, we are trying to get rid of a book case we got from World Market. I love it so much but we don't have a place for it (the bug wooden circular one)! 2y

I just purchased a book as a gift for someone who isn‘t on Litsy! I always feel nervous about choosing books for other people. Is that weird?

In other news, I briefly thought I threw my iPad in with the recycling when I cleaned out my tote bag this morning. Fortunately, it had merely slid out and underneath the seat in my car when I had to brake sharply on the commute.

Happy Friday eve, Litsy!

Kaye Oh my gosh. If I lost track of my iPad, I‘d go off the deep end. I use it almost nonstop. I‘d give away all our groceries and my tv and computer before I‘d give up my iPad. 2y
AmyG What @Kaye said. 2y
MrBook It's not weird. People themselves can be weird with what they read though, lol. Glad your iPad is safe 😁👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻, sounds like a @BookBabe story 😆🙌🏻. 2y

GripLitGrl Not wierd at all. I've been in the same spot myself😀 but taking a risk on a book it always worth it😉 2y
megt Not weird at all! I‘m giving each member of my family a book as one of their gifts and I‘m still not sure I made the right choices. 2y
Eyelit I always feel anxious buying books for others (unless I‘ve known them forever and have a good sense of their taste) - which is why I mostly do gift cards to the local indie bookstore 😄. So glad your iPad wasn‘t lost! 2y

#giftswapthisorthat @MaleficentBookDragon

Thanks for tagging me, @Redjewel_7734. Took me a minute.😀

1. Holiday Spirits, including, but not limited to eggnog with a kick, peppermint schnapps, and gluehwein

2. Scarf, the longer, the better

3. It's complicated because I keep falling in love with new books.

4. Love both, but probably need to go with popcorn for my health.

5. @jdtchicago @CouronneDhiver @Booksandcooks

MaleficentBookDragon What‘s gluehwein? 2y
ptkpepe98 @MaleficentBookDragon - it is a warm German drink, literally translates to glow wine. It is a wine based cider, usually served warm, when you venture out to the Weihnachtsfest - Christmas Festival. There are non alcoholic versions available, too. Yummy to keep you warm.🍵 2y
MaleficentBookDragon @ptkpepe98 Well that sounds delightful! 2y
