A slow book day is sounding really good to me right about now. I don’t how you are feeling about it but I’m finding that my TBR (to be read) list is becoming over whelming long. I’m not keeping up (well, I wasn’t really anyway but now it’s getting way out of hand) and I’m going to have to start speed reading to even make a dent.
It has helped that a few of the books lately were like a meal I didn’t like all that well. With all of the other attractive choices on the table I could abandon the less tasty dishes and move on. Very helpful at a time like this.
Today the pickings are slim and I’m finding the Amazon free list has been over-mined with my searches and there’s not much (if anything) new there right now anyway.
Chautona Havig always (usually) has a Free Friday book so we’ll go with that today. I like her books because they leave me feeling lighter, and that’s a good thing.
Her FREE book this Friday is a Christmas story – which is great, being the right season and all. I love Christmas stories, songs, and even decorations, in season or out of season.
I have a few decorations around the house that have managed to stay up all year. More than a few times. They are well on their way to becoming permanent fixtures. My daughter rolls her eyes at me.
To change things up a bit I rearrange these words every now and then. My grandsons did the honors last time they were here. They are cute teenagers with a mischievous glint in their eyes and they are proud of their effort.
So… back to Chautona’s FREE book,
It’s Merri’s Christmas Mission
This book was part of a previous Christmas collection so I’ve read and enjoyed already (a win/win for me.)
Merri is a young mom who loves Christmas and goes all-out to make it over-the-top special. The trouble is; she lost her job three months ago and money is tight.
All Barney wants is to win a pool table for the joy of the regulars (guys) at his adored non-profit Mission.
Their paths collide in this small town when they both set their eyes on the pool table contest as a way to make their dreams come true.
Will there be a winner with a devastated loser or will they find a way to make it a win-win situation?
You will have to read to find out.
Happy Friday with a little Christmas and, Happy Reading.
