This Christmas, I’m going to take a reading break.
That Christmas tree you see to the left? It is two stories tall, and it is made entirely of books. (It’s bringing in the festive season at the Singapore National Library, from where I borrowed no less than eight books.)
This week, I’ll gather me those books, order me some food, curl up on the sofa and read. What with all the traveling, the work, and the writing, I’ve been having withdrawal symptoms– I crave days of uninterrupted reading.
Luckily, my family doesn’t mind my nerdy habits.
What about you? Prayer, Goodwill, Friends, Food, Family? Downtime?
Wherever you are, and whatever it is you’re planning for Christmas, I hope you have a good one. See you in the New Year!
Love that book tree!
I hope you've been able to catch up on some reading. 🙂
Very innovative tree.
Have fun reading!
A reading break can be more relaxing than going to the best spa (speaking from personal experience) !!
A reading break sounds like perfection. And that tree is wonderful! I hope you're enjoying your reading break.
That book tree is enormous and I totally love it. How cool that you borrowed books from the library where it is displayed!
Hope you enjoyed and are enjoying your books!
Thanks for sharing the picture. Brilliant idea. I hope Christmas was good to you. happy New Year.
That tree is gorgeous!
Happy New Year, Damyanti!
Downtime. And since I have allergies, I made my own book tree this year. Not nearly as tall as the one pictured, but it was a lot of fun. Plus, it gave me the opportunity to easily dust the shelves in my library! Happy holidays to you.
Merry X-Mas and thanks for sharing this wonderful book tree. It's fascinating and enticing:)
it is a wonderful book tree….
Love the tree. Family gift giving and Turkey tomorrow as we always celebrated on the Eve. We go to my sis-in-law on Christmas Day and then I am not doing anything on Friday-nothing, nil, nadda:) Merry Christmas!!
Merry Christmas Damyanti! Enjoy your break!
Hi human, Damyanti,
That quite the tree of books. In a way, the tree is more than two stories. Have a peaceful, hopeful holiday season, dear human.
Here's to 2015 and a fresh start.
I know I should be writing; but I'm hoping to take the next couple weeks and catch up on reading too. My TBR list has grown as large and that book tree you posted.
Happy Holidays Damyanti 🙂
Are those books? That's the best book tree I've seen! Have a wonderful holiday. See you in 2015.
I thought for a moment you were going to not read for two weeks. I can't even imagine that.
That's a lotta tree!
Enjoy your downtime and your holidays.
Thanks for your help and support throughout the year!
That's an impressive tree.
I'll be taking a break this week and just enjoying family and fun.
