a marked lack of books under my tree

Piles of presents draped in sparkles

Bows and ribbons wrapped around

Those lovely soaps and bubble baths.

But then there’s nothing underneath that tree

That slightly looks like hardback books

Filled with stories for this week of boredom

Where I dream of other worlds

With beaches, holidays and handsome men…

I don’t know if there are any other bookish people out there who have the same problem as me – because it is a big problem. I never get any books for Christmas from any of my loved ones.

I think that my family are worried they will buy something that I have either read, or feel very strongly against. But I know other readers suffer this terrible issue because their families think they already have enough books!

I mean, can you imagine?

Anyway, I do believe that Waterstones have a massive sale on at the moment so I can rectify this problem within the next 24 hours.

Merry Christmas everyone, and hope that you got everything you wanted underneath your tree yesterday. And if you didn’t, I hope that you got to spend the day with everyone you loved.

Much Love

Rachel xx

    I hope you’re having a lovely holiday, Rachel! And I know just what you mean about books. Some people don’t know what book to buy; others are just not ‘book’ people and don’t get it about how great a gift a book is. I hope you find some great stuff at Waterstone’s!
