More Books Please

Do give books – religious or otherwise – for Christmas. They’re never fattening, seldom sinful, and permanently personal.

Nerdist: A Ghost Story for Christmas

And you guys thought I wasn’t going to post anymore scary stories. Ha! The joke is on you because this is an article about scary stories. Scary stories shared in Britain during Christmastime no less.

Kidding aside, I thought this was an interesting read. I like hearing about how other countries celebrate holidays and the origin of certain traditions as well. The link to the article is below.

Reading is Bliss

“Reading is everything. Reading makes me feel like I’ve accomplished something, learned something, become a better person. Reading makes me smarter. Reading gives me something to talk about later on. Reading is the unbelievably healthy way my attention deficit disorder medicates itself. Reading is escape, and the opposite of escape; it’s a way to make contact with reality after a day of making things up, and it’s a way of making contact with someone else’s imagination after a day that’s all too real. Reading is grist. Reading is bliss.”
