It's that time of year! The time your bookshop membership earns you lots of rewards as you visit for OTHER people as well as yourself. Or the time that you go into a bookshop, despite not usually frequenting them, because you've got family or friends who are book dragons* and you love them enough to want to get them something they'd really like for Christmas. But then! You get inside, you look around, and there are SO MANY BOOKS. Where do you start? It's okay. I'm here to help. *twitter user @bookdragonism encouraged me to replace "bookworms" with "bookdragons" because... well, because it's cooler.
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! How time flies since I wrote my last holiday letter. 2018 has been a big year for our family, and I hope it has been exciting for you and yours.
Our eldest son, Lamont, had his preschool graduation last week. How proud we were! He was honoured to receive the award for “most likely to succeed at public school” and to co-share the title of Valedictorian with his young friend Persephone Huntyr-Griffin who won “most likely to succeed at private school”. We will miss Persephone next year; watching them play trivial pursuit was so endearing.
