Enjoy your holiday today! I hope you received a book or two as gifts today enjoy reading in your spare time. Share with me the books you received today and/or books you gave as gifts. I gave three audiobooks on compact disc to my maternal grandma.We haven't opened gifts yet, so don't know if I've received any books as gifts. I'll keep you posted.


  1. I got a book called 'Crobots'. It's how to make crocheted robots.... and I got it from my brother.

    There's one little problem - small really - I don't have a clue how to crochet. And the other problem (I should have said two problems, but then, here we are), crocheting is a right-handed craft and I'm a southpaw! Mum and I have had our share laughing and giggling over how to do the steps in the book...and she's convinced that she gave me a book crotcheting, on how to crochet left-handed, but she hasn't (she gave a book on to knit socks). Anyway, Dad thought I looked like I the look he gets when he's trying tie flies... :P

    Well, he ought to try out crocheting - hang on, he's right handed... darn! :P

    1. I love it!! Who knew there was a book about how to crochet robots?!?!

      Lol, about your brother not knowing you don't know how to crochet! Seriously though, I don't crochet myself either, so I never knew that crocheting is a right-handed craft.

    2. I'm seriously thinking of joining a craft group in my area to learn to crochet properly - from women who have done this thing for yonks! - and then I'll be able to pick it up quickly.

      Note to self: call local community centre for craft, knitters & crotcheting circle near me. :P

      The best thing is that when I got frustrated with this, I got the giggles with it and looked at the crochet hook all cross-eyed - this made my folks laugh even harder at me :P

    3. Have fun & post pictures to your blog should you join and create crochet items!! I want to see what you make!! :-)

  2. P. S. I didn't receive any books this year as gifts from family and friends! I think they got the memo that my to be read pile is out of control, lol!
