Christmas comes early...I went out this morning to my bovine family, and I come back in, and the Christmas Elves have put up a new
thread in my name...its just magic....
And I am just loving the books being put up, and the illustrations are just gorgeous. As said above, a great present for couples
expecting a baby, or with an infant in the house.... Thanks a mil all.

Any recommendations as to where is best site/place to buy the books.
We had a couple of fellas over in the yard yesterday to do some work. It took me few minutes to work out why one of them
was looking at me weirdly. I had spotify in my pocket, and it was playing Santa Claus is coming to town. He was definately of
the Bah Humbug brigade.....

My absolute favourite place in the whole world is Chapters in Dublin (no affiliation, I just adore them). Other than that, bookdepository.com are good (they used to be excellent, with a first rate customer service), but since Amazon took over things have declined a bit - they're still good, but they went from a 10 out of 10 to a 7 out of 10 (to me at least).

Was browsing a bookshop today and this book jumped at me: Christmas Pudding by Nancy Mitford.
About a Christmas house party.
Starts like this: "Four o' clock on the first of November, and dark and foggy day".
Had to have it !
Am reading another book at the moment, will let you know how it is , once I get to it !

"Sophie Kinsella will return to her bestselling Shopaholic series with her first festive title, Christmas Shopaholic, to be published in October 2019"
I am not so sure about this one. Has anyone here read any of her other books ?
