The Twelve Tasks of the Festive Season — Task the Second: The Silent Nights; and Task the Third: The Holiday Party

Task the Second: The Silent Nights:
– Get your hygge on! Put on your fuzziest socks, light a candle, and spend some time (reading) in front of the fireplace or your coziest nook. Post a picture if you want!

And:

Task the Third: The Holiday Party:
– Read a book where a celebration is a big part of the action.

Sofa, pillows, favorite blanket, favorite black velvet slippers, favorite childhood dinner and a mug of spicy chocolate tea, volume 3 of the audio collection of Patrick O’Brian’s Aubrey / Maturin cycle on my living room speakers, with Rex Stout’s And Four to Go (4 short stories, 3 of these involving holiday celebrations) to be finished later … I’d say that should count as two birds (tasks) with one, err, shot, shouldn’t it?

  1. Very cosy! Actually, in Swedish we have something like ‘hygge’ too – we call it ‘mys’. Some people do it every Friday – Friday ‘mys’ with potato chips and other unhealthy snacks in front of the tv. But of course the Christmas atmosphere/spirit is a bit more. Especially if you have books. 🙂

(Gosh … […]

June 2021 and Mid-Year Reading Recap

Sigh.  Well, I think posting a monthly (and even half-year) reading recap a full three weeks into the next month has to be some sort of record, even for me, but here we are.  And I admit that at this point I’d even been contemplating holding off another week so as to combine this with […]
