Christmas is almost here. If you're still looking for gifts check out my website www.authormaggiecasteen.com/books for great gift ideas. Christmas is my favorite time of the year. I love the pretty decorations, the Christmas songs, writing Christmas cards (yes, I still write my Christmas cards), and seeing people I've haven't in a while. I also enjoy the holiday traditions like the holiday my family does every year, going to our Christmas Eve church service, and taping the Christmas cards I get onto a door so, everyone can see them (it really does make a cool Christmas display). Christmas is a wonderful time to spend with family and let them know how much they mean to you. It really is so important to treasure your family while you have them because it won't always be that way. However, the true meaning of Christmas is not about gifts, decorations, or holiday gatherings (although I do enjoy all the above). It is about the birth of Jesus and the love our Heavenly Father has for us. That is what makes the Christmas season so special and full of hope, joy, and love. That is why it is the most wonderful time of the years. That is the reason for the season. So, Merry Christmas everyone and I wish you a Christmas full of wonderful memories!
One of the things I love most about my Christmas vacation is that I finally have a chance to sit down and read. I started the Goodreads Reading Challenge this year and I've been so busy that I've been struggling to keep up. However, that is about to change as I will have a whole week to really get cozy and read. I absolutely love getting lost in a book and not having a thousand other things on my mind. So, here's so getting lost in a book and forgetting everything else.
Also, if you are looking for a book to get lost in as well, then please check out my Kathy Hamilton Mystery series. Don't just take my word for it, readers agree that this series is one that you can really enjoy. Available in paperback and eBook, just go to my books page at www.authormaggiecasteen.com/books to buy these awesome reads.
Until next time.....
I can't believe December is already here, it kind of sneaks up on you after Thanksgiving. Christmas decorations are up, the tree is done, and all that is left is Christmas shopping. Christmas shopping is one of those things you either love or you don't. I tend to enjoy it because I like picking out presents that I know that particular person will enjoy. It really does give me a good feeling. However, if you are looking for unique Christmas gifts here are three gift ideas that will fit any budget. Visit www.authormaggie.casteen.com/books to find awesome reads for less than $20. Available in paperback and eBook, these books will be the perfect gift for the readers on your shopping list. Merry Christmas and happy shopping!
Until next time....
