Pour yourself a cup of tea (or Christmas cheer) and settle yourself somewhere comfy to meander through these websites, some useful, others simply fun; some specific to the season, others not. I’ve collected here links to everything from unique gift ideas for writers and readers to the world’s most spectacular bookstores, from Canadian writers’ favourite read-aloud Christmas tales to alluring international literary pilgrimages for your bucket list.
Believe me, I could have made the list longer and kept you glued to your computer — but you do, after all, want to spend time with your family over the holidays.
Number 1 can’t help but put you in a festive spirit. It’s a charming video from Chapters/Indigo in which authors share what would make their Christmas season magical. I hope you enjoy it, as well as the rest of your tour. If you do, please let me know in the Comments.
Best wishes, fellow writers and readers, for a love- and laughter-filled holiday season.
