Weekly Wrap-Up

There is nothing in the world so irresistibly contagious as laughter and good humor.


Yelena Bryksenkova's illustrated edition of A Christmas Carol. Our Instagram followers know we're in love with Lisbeth Zwerger's edition as well. We've yet to find a book illustrated by Zwerger that we haven't wanted to snatch up tout suite.

Subscribers! As in you should be one. Thanks to Tracy's incredibly talented and techie friend Ted, you can now sign up to receive emails when we post a book review. We're not looking to flood your inbox—we average 1 - 2 book reviews a week—you should only hear from us a couple times tops. So for a little cheer and book love in a sometimes dreary inbox, subscribe here. Or click on the Subscribe tab with that darling little "new!" above it. That's compliments of Ted as well. We owe this kind man a burger.

The Giving Manger. A beautiful way to put service back in the season and remind us all why we celebrate.

Hot cocoa, a cozy blanket, and a good book. We'll take our cocoa in one of these lovelies, please.

Now this is our kind of Superhero.

Your little library buffs are going to love bringing home their latest finds in this.

Book recommendations. A favorite friend suggested Brené Brown's The Gifts of Imperfection. A timely read as our ever-growing (and largely left undone) holiday to-do lists threaten to melt us into a pool of self-loathing.


A fabulous Instagram giveaway.

Our January Book Club selection.
