Well it hit me today, I have been a bit remiss. Last month, in the post His Heart Grew 3 Sizes that day I told you the story of Michelle finding a tag on our offices giving tree from a 17-year-old boy. All he asked for was a bike…
Michelle launched our personal fundraising plan that day by hitting up people we knew at work. I in turn hit Facebook as well as all the riders I knew here. The first day we had $300 in pledges.
Folks there are two things about me when it comes to Christmas shopping. One, I hate shopping in stores, so I use the online option. Amazon has become my friend! Second, being the reader that I am, I like to share books whenever possible, especially with kids.
I am VERY lucky that a great friend of mine, Renee, has written some of the best kidlet books I’ve ever seen. I wanted to share these with you today as we all start shopping!
(This is a reprint of a blog post from last year, but with holiday shopping going on, and Thanksgiving a week away, it is NOW ok to start getting a new Christmas book for the family!)
I’ve mentioned in the past that I am an avid reader. I’ve been reading damn near every day since at least the 4th grade, and maybe even before. Getting a book for my birthday or Christmas was the perfect gift. What else could you get, for the price of a movie, that gives you many many hours of fun.
Nowadays, I carry my iPad or my Kindle everywhere I go, and I read whenever I get the chance. I usually have 2 or 3 books going at anyone time.
When asked for gift ideas for people, one of the first things I think of is a book! Those who can write and get a book published are to be admired. Which is why I am excited to do this post. One of my oldest friends, Jim Devitt, has written a book that would be perfect for the holidays!
