Hello book lovers! If you’re an avid reader on a budget, you’ll find loads of free and bargain books on this weekly book linky from Beck Valley Books just in time for Christmas. Here you’ll find a great selection of pre-loved reads plus all the new releases about to hit shelves and Kindles, all downloadable from Amazon.com.
How are your Christmas preparations going? I’ve started my Christmas shopping, although I haven’t got much further with gifts for the kids. And, as usual, the husband doesn’t have a clue what he’d like. Once you reach a certain age you’ve pretty much got everything, haven’t you? Apart from books, of course. You can never have too many books.
Talking of which, I hope you caught my review of the fabulous “Public Speaking Super Powers” by the energetic Carma Spence. If you’ve got any occasion coming up where you’ll have to address more than one person, trust me you need this book. In my review, I also recount one of THE most embarrassing events of my life. No sniggering in the back!
If you are looking for stocking fillers, I’ve got some great colour changing Star Wars lights for kids to give away from Spearmark, as well as my retro sweet hampers from Swizzels and Drumond Park’s Super Ski Jump Tabletop game – and there are more great giveaways in the pipeline. You’ll find all the details on my giveaways page as usual of course.
The husband is in the UK this week which means the standard of cooking will dramatically improve in this house. Check out my recipes for warming winter pies and also some easy to make waistline-friendly snacks, ideal for your reading sessions or curling up on the sofa watching TV.
If you do manage to find a moment for yourself, as ever, you can find plenty of free and bargain books from Beck Valley Books on this link. Make sure you keep up with your self-care and carve out some time for yourself!
Have a great week!
