This year I’m counting down the days ‘til Christmas with books and other fun things readers enjoy! I love the Holiday Season so I’m sharing ideas for you to fill your holiday stocking!
When I was a child, some of my favorite gifts were coloring books. As I grew up, I felt a little childish buying kids coloring books for my own entertainment, but I did it anyway. I still like to color. It's soothing, relaxing and calming. And now coloring books made specifically for adults is the new fad! All to my pleasure!
Here are some of my favorites:
