What are you reading for Christmas?
Until I find you
so far, Hot Toy by Jennifer Cruisie & Hogfather by Terry Pratchett
What’s Hogfather about?
This is a Terry Pratchett book set in his alternate universe: Discworld. How to explain? Here’s the blurb listed on Amazon for this book: Who would want to harm Discworld’s most beloved icon? Very few things are held sacred in this twisted, corrupt, heartless—and oddly familiar—universe, but the Hogfather is one of them. Yet here it is, Hogswatchnight, that most joyous and acquisitive of times, and the jolly, old, red-suited gift-giver has vanished without a trace. And there’s something shady going on involving an uncommonly psychotic member of the Assassins’ Guild and certain representatives of Ankh-Morpork’s rather extensive criminal element. Suddenly Discworld’s entire myth system is unraveling at an alarming rate. Drastic measures must be taken, which is why Death himself is taking up the reins of the fat man’s vacated sleigh . . . which, in turn, has Death’s level-headed granddaughter, Susan, racing to unravel the nasty, humbuggian mess before the holiday season goes straight to hell and takes everyone along with it.
Plus, the film version features Michelle Dockery as Susan. Before Downton Abbey!
I must read all of that series then

I just finished reading TOM P’S FIDDLE by SHERRI KNIGHT. It’s in paperback. It’s a true story about a man in Texas.Takes place in the early 1800’s . It tells how some mistakes you make can cost you dearly. A very interesting story.
