55 Flash Fiction Friday - Christmas Eve Discovery

This meme is hosted by Mr. Knowitall.



Today's story is true. When we were younger my brother and I used to cuddle up in one bed in anticipation of Christmas Morning. We were always very excited and could hardly sleep.  Then one year as we lay there we heard my mom watching her soaps, which wasn't unusual. What was unusual was the sounds of gifts being wrapped. 

Christmas Eve Discovery

Cuddled in bed, too excited to sleep, a brother and sister lay awake talking about what they expect to find Christmas morning. Then they hear the TV come on with Mom’s favorite soap opera, and the sounds of gifts being wrapped. But all the gifts from Mom and Dad are already under the tree!

    1. Yes, she would tape them during the day when she was at work and watch them at night after we went to bed. I remember many a night falling asleep to the sounds of the opening song to The Young & The Restless.

  2. Maybe Santy Claus digs them soaps! He and Mom might have been sitting there having a cup of egg nog while watching them.

Blind Date with a Book

Last year I put together a book display called Blind Date with a Book.  I found the idea through another librarian's post and thought it was great.  Last year I wrapped 19 books and 15 books were checked out.  We asked that people reviewed the book but unfortunately only two people returned reviews.
Last year's books included:

Went to the 2013 NJLA Adult Services Forum...left with a book list.

Yesterday I attended the NJLA Adult Services Forum (don't worry you don't need to know what it is for this post) and while there attended one panel and spoke on another and walked away with a list of some new books to read.  Since I'm really behind in writing reviews I decided to just share these new books so I at least had a post for today!
