Hello, friends! The holidays are here! Welcome to 24th day of the 25 Days of Jubilation event! There's been a post and giveaway every day this month and a HUGE giveaway from our hosts. (Think along the lines of KINDLE!) Be sure to check the list of other posts and giveaways at our wonderful hosts' blogs, Cyndi at Dog-Eared & Bookmarked, Jacinda at The Reading Housewives, and Yani at The Secret Life of an Avid Reader.
With the holidays comes all the fun and, of course, that *loving* frustration of dealing with family, friends, and everyone's roller-coaster schedules. There are many different traditions that families carry out each year and ours is no different. We'll be spending Christmas Eve with my husband's family and then be headed to the home of the matriarch of my family, A.K.A. "Mammaw", on Christmas Day.
I'm sure most of you are out and about with your families the next couple of days as well. Whether you are having everyone at your house or en-route to another location for the festivities, here are some things that help me pass the time and put me in the holiday mood: Christmas music!
Some of my favorites that are my absolute "go-to's" are:
This one is usually my ringtone for about a month or so. LOL
After that, I usually have a continuous rotation of Charlotte Church running in the background. Growing up in choir and loving music in general, the combination of her amazing voice and the London Orchestra and Choir are perfect to my ears!
Oh, yeah, before you go I have a little something that could be yours!
Here's Wishing You a Cassandra Clare Christmas!
Feast your eyes on the "precious"......
This is a SIGNED Collector's First Edition of Clockwork Prince by Cassandra Clare. It is the second installment of the Infernal Devices series and debuted on December 6, 2011. Find out more on Goodreads about this amazing book and series.
I had the privilege of meeting her in Nashville, TN when she stopped by. She's hilarious and gracious enough to sign any amount of books you bring with you. So, for you readers, I asked her to sign this one with just her signature so it could fit on anyone's shelves!
Hurry up and enter, the giveaway only goes till 12:01am January 6, 2012 and is open to U.S. followers only. (Sorry guys, grad student budget here. :/) Please observe the conditions listed at the bottom of the widget and I hope to talk to you soon!
