Top Ten Tuesdays and Happy Holidays


Top  Ten Tuesdays: For TTT this week at The Broke and The Bookish, it is a freebie , so here is mine
My Top Ten Christmas book/stories (there are more but for once, I decided to stick to ten only, maybe something to do with watching the Pope at the Vatican's Midnight Mass while writing this list!)
1.       Little Women by Louisa May Alcott
2.       The Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens
3.       The Gift of the Magi by O ‘Henry
4.       The Little Match Girl by Hans Christian Andersen
5.       The Elves and the Shoemaker by the Grimm Brothers
6.       The Steadfast Tin Soldier by Hans Christian Andersen
7.       The Selfish Giant by Oscar Wilde
8.       How the Grinch Stole Christmas by Dr.Seuss
9.       A Wallflower Christmas by Lisa Kleypas
10.   Twelfth Night by William Shakespeare

For NaBloPoMo, the prompt for today and my answer:

How far would you travel daily for a job you love?
I love travel but I do not think I would love to travel on a daily or regular basis for a job. I prefer the convenience of closeness – I think I would end up moving closer to this job I love. 

and I have a lot of recipes for future Tuesday posts but today, I end this post with wishes for a Wonderful Holiday Season...

  4. How the Grinch Stole Christmas reminds me of How the Grinch Met His Max. That book made me cry. As an adult. With Children. So, I can't read it anymore. lol.

  5. I have driven an hour away for my job. I have also had a job within walking distance. Now that I am retired I am glad not to have to drive at all.

  8. Little Women is on my "to-read" list for 2013. I know, how can it be I've never read it?! The Selfish Giant? I love Oscar Wilde, but I don't know that one. I'll have to look for it!! Merry Christmas!

    1. :) 'Pride and Prejudice' was my 'have never read' book till earlier this month!!
      And I am sure you will love Little Women as well as 'The Selfish Giant' - it is a short, sweet story.

  9. The Christmas Carol and How the Grinch Stole Christmas are definitely in my top ten Christmas books too!

    I too would want to move closer to a job I loved. Time is too short and valuable to be spent commuting and I have done it!
