Holiday Book Pairings

Amorous Pair

It’s that time of year again! No, not the last minute-run-around-like-a-crazy-person-trying-to-put-a-lid-on-work-before-the-onset-of-holidays-so-you-can-avoid-having-to-bring-your-laptop-to-the-family-dinner time of year. It’s the time of year for book pairings. It’s become an annual thing (this being the second year – so it’s official). CWILL BC members have helpfully contributed to a list of their books paired with a thematically similar item which is located on the CWILL BC blog.

Might I suggest that this list deserves a look? If only to ease the stress of this ‘holiday’ season when it comes to gift buying. (It won’t help you with your workload though. Or with keeping the cranberry sauce off your keyboard.)

If you’ll excuse me, I’m off to decorate my desk with garlands of festive invoices and colourful rough drawings. I might even throw in a spreadsheet for good measure. They’re so pretty at this time of year.

Oh, and remember to request a seat at the table that’s closest to an outlet. There’s nothing worse than running out of battery power before the end of the main course

Hatching Loons

I’m all set for the CWILL BC 2008 Spring Book Hatching tomorrow.

In Vancouver tomorrow and looking for somewhere to take the kids? Stop by the Vancouver Public Library Central Branch between 1 and 3pm. There will be a whole lot of kids book authors and illustrators set up in the lower level, just itching to talk about their books and sign coveted Spring Book Hatching passports. Age groups from picture books up to young adult/teen novels are covered.
