Merry Christmas!

I saw a book tree like this on Facebook this year and had to try it.


To all who've visited and commented here on the blog over the years (or for the first time today!), I appreciate the chance to talk with you about all things writing, reading, faith, 18th century, and book-related (Whew! That's a lot of interests for one little ol' blog).

Merry Christmas!

And a Blessed New Year!!

  2. Ruth, it was fun to build, not too hard, just took a few hours to gather all the books and remove the DJs. I have a few paperbacks in there too. Some of my favorite authors and author friends dear to me, including Laura Frantz, J.M Hochstetler, Liz Curtis Higgs, Bonnie Leon, Ann Shorey, James Alexander Thom... as well as a few childhood favorites, and a whole lot of 18th century research.

  3. Lori, It's beautiful! And I'm honored to be a part of it with Joan, Bonnie, Ann, Liz and Jim, etc! Love how it highlights your corner. Very creative! Wish I could see it in person! There's some fine reading in that tree:)

  4. I, too, adore your book tree! Lovely to look at, no need to water, and it's very unlikely the pages will fall off. I bet it smells good, too! May you and yours have a blessed Christmas.

  5. How creative you are, Lori! I saw that tree on Facebook, too, but would never have attempted to duplicate it. Thank you for including me in such a distinguished group of authors!

    You'll have to cut and paste. I dunno how to be making that a live link. :)

    Although I have to say, while the tree with the open green books is very pretty, seeing those book spines strained like that makes me cringe, just a little.

  7. Thank you for including me in your tree, Lori! I just totally love this idea!! I can't imagine a better Christmas decoration for us authors and/or avid readers. I'm going to have to try this next year!

  8. Joan, I hope you do try it. It was great fun. If I do this again I'll probably go bigger, and be sure to fill the center of the tree instead of leaving it hollow. Any bigger and it would have to be filled to be stable. :)
