Get Fired Up!

Earlier today I stopped in at my friend Karen’s place to pick up two autographed copies of her most recent novel, Summer of Fire. I have two teenage nieces that we’ll be seeing on Christmas Eve and wanted to have a gift for each of them. I immediately knew I’d give them each a copy of Karen’s most recent Young Adult novel. Books are one of my favourite gifts, whether to receive or to give. When I picked up the books Karen and I chatted for a while and then I returned home to wrap up the books. I knew Karen had already personalized and signed the books for me but it wasn’t until I arrived home that I saw what she wrote. It was so perfect and, as is apt for such a wordsmith, there is a double entendre in what she wrote, “Get fired up about reading!”


Here’s to getting fired up this Christmas season. May you and yours enjoy a Christmas that is filled with love, laughter, and special moments. Be sure to capture those moments with your camera too!
