It’s been a while since I did a Let’s Read Three grouping. I love putting these together and am brainstorming them all the time, silly and serious. Today, I bring a silly, but incredibly important one for weekend traditions… at least in our family. We love pancakes and consider them a somewhat mandatory item for weekend breakfasting, or let’s be honest – an occasional dinner. So of course we love books about pancakes! All three of these books are vintage, spanning the 60s and 70s; but the last one is actually a recent reprint from Princeton Architectural Press that releases this month. And it is gorgeous! A perfect addition to our trio of delicious reading. Let’s read three books about pancakes!Continue reading “Let’s Read Three: Pancakes Books”
December 1 has arrived and it is time to celebrate the coming of Christmas with an advent of sorts. Continuing my tradition for its fourth year, I am now kicking off the 25 Days of Christmas Children’s Picture Books, 2015! I have quite a selection of brand new, vintage, and in-between Christmas picture books to share. I will do my best to keep each day short with just a quick post about the book and a picture or two. I hope you’ll read along.Continue reading “25 Days of Christmas Children’s Picture Books, 2015”
Continuing our week of Thanksgiving preparation, I thought it appropriate to have a grouping of books revolving simply around the theme of thankfulness. While these are perfectly themed for the holiday ahead, a grateful attitude is beautiful and necessary all year round. Let’s read three books about thankfulness!Continue reading “Let’s Read Three: Thankful Books!”
It is the week of Halloween and our street is already verging on disgusting with all the creepy, crawly decor. I’m not much of a Halloween fan, especially of the gross and terrifying stuff. But I do like hanging out with friends, eating fun treats, wearing great costumes, and clever decorations. I love themed things. So today I want to do a group pairing with a ghostly theme perfect for Halloween. Two of them aren’t technically Halloween books, but ghosts are always appropriate for the occasion and so I think they work. Join me in reading three lovely books celebrating one of the famous characters of the holiday. Let’s read three books about ghosts!Continue reading “Let’s Read Three: Ghost Books”
Perhaps this post is coming a little late in the game, but there is something about the anticipation of fall that has me once again paying attention to and thinking about gardens, plants, and typical Spring-type things. Which is kind of strange considering I am practically allergic to Spring and so far I seem to have a terrible black thumb. Even my succulents bit the dust after just a couple months of apartment living. But recently, I have had a lovely little basil pot survive and yield two batches of pesto thus far, so I am feeling more interested and encouraged about gardening, even in city life.
Before everything starts the beautiful process of dying and changing colors for my favorite season, allow me to share a (bit wordier) look at three books devoted to gardens, and more importantly, community. Let’s read three books about gardening!Continue reading “Let’s Read Three: Gardening Books”
I promise these are my last summery, beachy books for a while. I really can’t wait to jump into a bunch of new finds and especially fall books! But these three deserve some love, especially as two are brand-new this year. Join me in reading a few more books about adventures at the beach. Let’s read three more sea books!Continue reading “Let’s Read Three: More Books About The Sea!”
