Ho Ho Ho…Or Something Like That!



In years past I’ve gotten a bit personal on Christmas but this year I’m going to keep it rather brief.

Wishing you and yours a very wonderful holiday. I’ll be sporadic more than likely for the rest of the year but I wanted to take a few moments to tell you just how much I appreciate you guys and the fact you all support me being ME here in this space (even if I’m talking about my butt…and your butts too OBVIOUSLY). I’ve loved our conversations, your recommendations, our laughs, etc. etc. The amazing thing about books is how they interconnect us. Our reactions and thoughts from these books are little windows into each of us and I feel like I’ve learned a bit about you all to some degree. Because of that, I truly and honestly wish you a happy holiday and wish I could send books to all of you to show my gratitude for you all. Because, in addition to cookies and presents and candy canes, Christmas is about showing those you love how much you appreciate them and cherishing them! And you all have become this weird, crazy (sometimes dysfunctional — in the best possible way) family to me!

In the meantime, if you are looking for some books to read with all your gift cards to bookstores (hopefully Santa is good to you), check out my top ten books of 2012, my End of Year Survey for EVEN more 2012 faves and my ten favorite new-to-me authors of the year.

About Jamie

Jamie is a 32 year old married lady (with a new baby!!) who is in denial that she's actually that old to be a married lady and a mom. When she's not reading you can find her doing Pilates followed by eating ice cream, belting out Hamilton (loud and offkey) and having adventures with her husband, daughter and rescue dog.


  1. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year, Jamie! I know I just met you, but I already feel like we’re kindred spirits. I will join you in conversations about our collective butts at any time.


  2. I’m a fairly new blogger and I’m not sure I’ve commented before, but this post made me smile so I figured I should stop by and let you know. Not to mention I totally get the butt stuff. So have a Merry Christmas and enjoy the cookies and presents!

  3. Merry Christmas to you too!

  4. Merry Christmas!

  5. Merry Christmas! I hope you are more than sporadic with your posts next year! I feel like you are a close friend of mine even though we have never met. Hope you enjoy your cookies and presents and candy canes, and books (can’t forget the books). <3

  6. ¡Feliz Navidad! (don’t get scared, what follows is in English!) I do get your post about your butt, and actually my kids make fun of me what I say that my ‘butty hurts’, but as you put it, blogging requires a lot of sitting.

    Anyway, Merry Christmas to you and yours 🙂

  7. Merry Xmas! 🙂

  8. Merry Christmas, Jamie! Hope it’s a great one for you. 🙂

  9. Merry Christmas and all the best for 2013! 🙂

  10. Merry Christmas! Hope you and Will enjoy the holidays <3
