Bookish (and not so Bookish) Thoughts #68

December 2, 2016 | 4 comments


1. I cannot believe it is already December. Time goes too fast.

2. The good thing is that it’s finally time to start listening to all the Christmas music and decorate my apartment. My favourite decoration is this Christmas countdown calendar that my grandma made. She made multiple ones, all identical – I have one, my sister has one, and my cousin has one (and I’m pretty sure there are at least a couple more in the family).


3. I don’t buy cookbooks that often, but The Mystery Writers of America Cookbook – Wickedly Good Meals and Desserts to Die For is one that I’d like to add to my collection.

4. One of the things I always look forward to in December is to hear DJ Earworm’s mashup United State of Pop (although I have to admit that this year I could only recognize about half of the songs included).

5. Kate has complied her list of lists of the best books of the year. It’s a must read for all fans of lists, books, and booklists. The only negative thing about these lists is that they make me want to buy so many books. (Or all the books, really.)
