Peculiar Treasures: Bookish Bonanza

By Kellie Purcill

Looking for a new Christmas movie? Segullah staffer Terresa recommends “Winter Thaw”, based on Tolstoy’s short story, “Martin the Cobbler”. A beautiful, inspiring holiday film for the whole family.

Is finding the perfect gift driving you up the Christmas tree? Seems that the best gift is the one they ask for, even – especially – if there’s no “wow” factor.

If books are your perfect present to give or receive, you may like to know that living in a library is as magical as you’d imagine.

Finally, if you’re after a reading challenge for 2017 that encourages you outside your usual pages, this reading challenge has a wide range of suggestions (as well as a code for discounted books, and the business gives away a book for every book you buy).  Please share your suggestions for the recommended book themes in the comments!

About Kellie Purcill

lives way on the other side of the planet in her native Australia and gives thanks for the internet regularly. She loves books, her boys, panna cotta, collecting words, being a redhead and not putting things in order of importance when listing items. She credits writing as a major contributing factor to surviving her life with sanity mostly intact, though her (in)sanity level is subject to change without warning.
