4 Touch And Feel Books To Read To Get Organized For Christmas
I like ebooks but I love old fashioned turn the page, paper and binding books more. I try to read at least one new Christmas title every November whether it be a nonfiction one about keeping Christmas debt free or a fictional story that I can get lost in for hours. (these of course are all also available in Kindle edition for you kindle lovers 🙂 ) .
The Red Glove Collection are heart touching stories about the true spirit of giving that we all should embrace at Christmas time. Warning have tissues ready.
I first read The Purpose Of Christmas last Christmas season and I really loved how it put my heart where it should be at Christmas time. I kept it (and I rarely keep books) and plan to reread it again this year. It is a short and simple read that can be read on a long afternoon or a few short evenings.
I read The Affordable Christmas years ago when it was an earlier edition and called Debt Proof Your Christmas . It is cram packed with valuable information on how to keep the costs of Christmas affordable for any budget.
I got Gifts For Giving a few years back on clearance and love all the great recipes and suggestions of how to pack them for gift giving as well as labels you can photo copy.
4 ebooks To Read To Get Organized For Christmas
Two things I love about ebooks, are that they are often short enough to read in one quiet afternoon and two that I can take fit them in my purse and take them anywhere.
