Books -- reading and writing.
Home, cooking, the weather.
And whatever connections I can make between these chapters of my life.

A Very Merry Christmas

Just when I thought there were no surprises under the tree, for reasons unbeknownst to me, Amazon decided to ship GLORY BE  before Christmas. A week EARLY!


What a joy to hear from friends, family and even strangers, near and far.
Merry Christmas, everybody!


GLORY BE- From your UPS delivery trucks, all the way to...



Atlanta, sipping a glass of chardonnay with Christopher.
















Being watched over by a very busy Shelf Elf.


In a stocking- or two!





Under the Tree in New Jersey!









And being "re-read" by some Very Important People...

to the tune of "O Tannenbaum"...by Christopher

O, Glory Be, O, Glory Be
How lovely is your cover.
O, Glory Be, O, Glory Be
A book for all book lovers!
Stuffed in a sock, or on a shelf.
Or hanging out with Christmas Elf.
O, Glory Be, O, Glory Be
A perfect Christmas gift to others!

WOW -- I had no idea it would be out this early. Have to go order mine IMMEDIATELY. It's soooo exciting -- for you and for all of us who have watched Glory take form. And I LOVE the O Tannenbaum, from whoever that is.

My copy is on its way - yay! Merry Christmas to you, Augusta!!!

Love those pictures of Glory Be "hanging" around the house.

I also got the bookmarks which I will pass out at the January schmooze as well as leave with some bookstores in town and give to the local school librarians, too. :-) xoxo~Kimberley
