Wow, this book is going to become a new classic. Albus knows how to tell a simple story that will still make your heart sing. If you want The Railway Children vibes, pick A Place to Hang the Moon. It‘s a perfect soothing sanctuary of a book in these weird times.

The Years | Virginia Woolf
post image

Don‘t you love that weird time between Christmas and New Year‘s? In Germany, we call this week “between the years” and I think that phrase perfectly captures the typical limbo feeling most of us experience during these days. It‘s usually the time of year I‘m most relaxed: everybody is home and we spend the days watching films, playing board games, going for walks, and reading. Days seem to blend into each other and you kind of lose track of time.

wordslinger42 What a perfect way of describing it! 6mo

Have you already read ‘The Miracle on Ebenezer Street‘? I‘ve heard so many good things so I recently caved in and ordered it. It‘s said to be a magically new take on ‘A Christmas Carol‘ so I‘m intrigued.

Do you revisit A Christmas Carol in whatever form during the holidays? Do you prefer the classic tale in book form, the Patrick Stewart film, or the Muppets movie version? Or any other adaptation?

Palimpsest @scripturient I try read to the original story every year. I usually watch a few versions which alternate year to year, but I love the 1970 Scrooge and A Muppets Christmas Carol. I own a few more including the Scott version, Stewart, Reginald Owen, and Disney. I didn‘t care for the Pierce version or the one directed by Figgis. I love this story so much! ❤️ I try to buy one new film adaption every year. I know I sound crazy. 2y
Palimpsest Oh and I have The Man Who Invented Christmas. I‘ll probably buy the Sim version this year! 🎄 2y
Avanders I do try to revisit The Christmas Carol everything year... in any form ☺️🎄♥️ 2y
Daisey I watch the Muppet version every year, and in the last few years I‘ve started reading or listening to a version of the original each year as well. 2y
Laughterhp I watch the muppet version every year! And do try to listen to the book on audio every year. 2y

The little human picked up a new read at the bookshop. We are about to explore the world of the ‘Air Pirates‘. This has had great reviews so I‘m looking forward to reading it together. 😍 #raisingreaders
