Lisa is this month's host so here is her explanation of this month's theme and a link to her post:
Meanwhile, what does your Christmas Reading Escape look like? Do you enjoy Christmas themed books? Are you already sick of the Christmas spirit? (If you are, you probably haven't read this far down this post!) Do you enjoy a nice glass of spiked egg nog with your books?
I wasn't sure what I was going to do for this month's topic because at first I interpreted it as being about what books I read for a Holiday Reading Escape. I don't tend to read holiday themed books and I didn't have any in my readinh plans this month.
After reading Lisa's post I realized that I was being too narrow in my definition of reading escape. I realized that for me escaping into my reading no matter what book is my way of escaping from the hubub and craziness of the Holiday season.
My favorite way to spend a weekend afternoon this time of year is to start by lighting the cranberry scented candles. For me that's the scent of the holidays because my mom always burned cranberry candles this time of year.
Then I brew up a cup of tea in my Christmas penguin mug.
I still don't know why penguins are in almost all the holiday animated specials and so popular in Christmas decorations because they're from the South Pole and not the North Pole but whatever . . . they're cute.
If it's cold I'll turn on the fireplace but even if it's not turned on it's decorated for the holidays.
Finally I plant myself in my recliner with my book and just enjoy the view over my slippers.
That's my Holiday Reading Escape. I escape from the chaos by just enjoying some time reading.
