Happy December, dear readers! I hope you are all doing well!
Mr. Bingley and I had a fun November that included some small camping trips and outdoor fun.
We definitely like camping in autumn weather more than summer weather…although both times we’ve been camping in November we had rain and temperatures that dropped into the 30s at night! 🏕❄️ But we were lucky to have some beautiful days of sunshine!
I’ve had such a desire to hike every weekend…I think I’m turning into to Elizabeth Bennet!! LOL! (How I would love to have something like Oakham Mount within easy walking distance!) 🍁
Alas, I must content myself with hiking on the weekends and driving to some destinations with beautiful views and scenery!
Are you busy with the holiday bustle yet? We sure are! Our house is mostly decorated (just need to finish the popcorn/cranberry garland…chain is too short!) and do some more on Christmas shopping…and then its many trips to the Post Office! 🎄📦🎁
But in between all that and cookie making and decorating, I have a very fun reading month planned! I’m so excited since this is the first time I’m doing something like this… 📚🤗
Want to know what Austenesque fun I’m getting into this month?
…here is what’s on this month’s

~ MY ANNUAL TRADITION! ~
You may remember I have a special holiday tradition…for the past 5 years I’ve read annotated editions of Jane Austen’s novels – some from David M. Shapard and some from Harvard University Press. I have one novel that I’ve yet to read an annotated edition for…and in truth, I haven’t reread this novel in over 10 years! So for this year it is Mansfield Park annotated by David M. Shapard!
~ FEATURED AUTHORS VISITING THIS MONTH ~
Sophie Turner – December 10th
Don Jacobson – December 14th
Did you notice anything special about all my reads (minus Mansfield Park) for December? 🎄🎁
I’ve never had a month full of Christmas reads before!! I’m so excited! I’m two books in and already loving it!
What are you reading this month? Any fun holiday plans?
