My nieces enjoy easy reading and devotional type books. I often find them knick knack gift books at thrift stores or second hand shops. Sometimes the books contain personal notes and writings inside. It gives away the used nature of the material, but these marks also add more intrigue to the book. I discovered the unmarked 25 Days to Christmas for a quarter and intended to give it to my nieces-or at least read it aloud with them when they visited. Instead I ended up keeping it for myself.
I know what you’re thinking. This book is about Christmas isn’t it? Jesus’ birth, right? The Resurrection’s Easter, isn’t it? No, I’m not confused like Martha Stewart- who doesn’t seem to realize purple is the traditional Easter color, unlike red and green for Christmas.
