Books for Christmas!

Books are always a big part of our Christmas celebrations here in the Jackson house. My husband, son, and I are all avid readers (as you know from my Monday updates), and even my younger son who says he hates to read was very happy with two particular books this Christmas!

Here's what we gave to each other:

Books my husband received (all from me!)

Books I received from my husband and son - can't wait to read them!

Even our non-reading son was happy with these two!

Our fantasy-loving son will enjoy these hefty tomes.
I also gave Endurance by Scott Kelly to my mom's husband, who loves nonfiction, and My Passion for Design by Barbra Streisand for my mom (kind of an inside thing with her and I after watching the play Buyer and Cellar, recorded at the Westport Playhouse - really awesome one-man play).

Now, the extended family has left, and I am pretty exhausted...ready to lie on the couch and read all week!!

I hope you and your family also had a bookish Christmas!

Christmas Dinner


  1. Giving and getting books for Christmas is the best thing ever. My parents were good and just bought me books off my wish list, which makes me happy. I've already begun Trevor Noah's Born a Crime.

    1. Wonderful!! I finally saw Trevor Noah's show for the first time - he's great! Enjoy your new books!

  2. I read The Good Earth when I was a kid and the story has really stayed with me. I should re-read it and see if it is still as powerful. Happy New Year!

    1. I've never read it! Can't wait. Hope you're enjoying your holiday week.

  3. I love that your family loves to read and that even your non-reading son liked his books!
