I'm ready!

It's Solent Writers' Circle Christmas party tonight and for once I'm properly prepared. Every year the winner of our annual humour competition is announced and the entries read out. We each bring something nice to eat - which includes home made shortbread from our chairperson.

Everyone brings a book or two. These are usually ones we've previously read and enjoyed ourselves. They're wrapped in recycled paper and heaped up for us to help ourselves.

I've bought the junk food, wrapped the books, written the cards, cadged a lift and checked I have the right day!

Now that's a fine idea to regift some books.

Sounds like a fun night.

Maggie May said...

What a great idea. That's definitely going to be a suggestion for us next year.

Romance Reader said...

It is a great idea and sounds fun too!

Rosemary Johnson said...

Have fun... or have you already had the fun?

Patsy said...

It's also a good way to be introduced to an author we might not otherwise have read.

Patsy said...

It was, Oscar.

Patsy said...

I hope you do it, Maggie. Everyone gets a surprise gift and it needn't cost anyone any extra.

Patsy said...

It is - who can resist a mystery book?

Patsy said...

Thanks, Rosemary. Yes, it was last night - and it was fun.

Ohh that was yesterday ... glad to see it was fun. Great idea - and yes ... not knowing what you book is going to come out of the pile ... could be entertaining ... cheers Hilary

Yes, we had a good time thanks, Hilary.
