🎄 I‘ve wanted this edition for over a year now. I missed out on the first and only one I saw during that time. And when I saw it pop up on Abe, I had to treat myself.

A next year seasonal read, but I was pretty excited to unwrap it today! And maybe I‘ll read a little now, there‘s nothing wrong with keeping Christmas in your heart all year long. Isn‘t that what the movies say? 🧐

LeahBergen I‘m so jealous! I‘ve been wanting a copy of this for years. 💚 9mo

Jess_Read_This @LeahBergen this was my fourth attempt at trying to buy this book… the first two times faster people scooped them up when I emailed the sellers condition questions and the third time the seller canceled my order. I was lucky and had some Christmas money burning a hole in my pocket. I‘ll keep an eye out for you! 2022 will be the year you get your copy! (edited) 9mo

LeahBergen Thanks! Yes, please do keep an eye out for me. Don‘t you hate when you get swooped on a book deal? 😆 9mo
BookBabe I don‘t know anything about that book, but the cover is lovely! 9mo
Jess_Read_This @LeahBergen I will definitely keep an eye out for you! And yes, it‘s a sore spot when I get swooped but I can begrudgingly get it because I can be too slow with my inquiries on condition where there isn‘t a photo lol. I lost out on a copy of Sylvia Warner Townsend‘s Diaries (read the Slightly Foxed email on it)Opened the description and went to add it to my cart- and someone already bought in that 30 seconds lol. 9mo
Jess_Read_This @BookBabe I love it too! So much nostalgia! I hope kids still have snowball fights nowadays. I did and this book was published in the early 1950‘s so kids did then. The memories of it all drew me to the cover. (edited) 9mo
LeahBergen @Jess_Read_This Grrr! And I JUST read the Slightly Foxed email about that one. 😆 9mo
Jess_Read_This @LeahBergen lol- I keep telling myself I hope the person that bought it for a good $9.79 deal was a fellow middlebrow lover reading their email the same time I was this morning… 🤣 9mo
elkeOriginal Wait, @LeahBergen doesn‘t own this? 🤯 9mo
LeahBergen @elkeOriginal Nope. 😆 9mo
Jess_Read_This @LeahBergen @elkeOriginal 2022 is her year for a copy! We are going to find it! Sending all the book serendipity manifesting type wishes out into the universe she gets it. 💫 And that she gets a better deal on her copy than I did 🤣 (edited) 9mo

I've been a book nerd for years now and yet this was the first time I actually got a book as a present (I've gotten books I've asked for before, but that was years ago). Pretty sure my non-bookish brother picked a book at random, and yet it was one that has been on my TBR 😂 Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, enjoy the day off, etc..

monkeygirlsmama I need to go back and reread the original Trylle books and then pick up this one. I loved the originals back when they first came out.

Enjoy!! And what a stunning cover too.

sixgun I saw this advertised on Facebook and I asked for it for Christmas. My semi literate family did not get it for me. LOL. So I guess I have to go get it for myself. Where did you get yours? 4y
sixgun Nevermind, I just saw the link above!! 4y
HufflepuffGirl90 @sixgun hahaha oh family! I hope you like it! It really showed me how many classics I haven‘t read lol. 4y
sixgun @HufflepuffGirl90 I just noticed your name. Rock on name sister. I have such a difficult time getting through classics. Audio books are my friend, but even so, I struggle. My grandfather have me a 50 book classics collection. I've read some Shakespeare from it, that's it. I need direction. I'm glad you are enjoying yours! 4y
HufflepuffGirl90 @sixgun WOOT! Name sistas! I feel your pain, I have a huge problem with actually sitting down and reading the classics. I‘m hoping this will help me focus, I love me some check lists. 🤓 4y
sixgun @HufflepuffGirl90 check lists are my life. The initial reason I got this app 4y
