If you love books…

Books are my passion, comfort, reward, connection and affirmation. Reading Interrupted is to me what a fashion magazine is to a fashionista. Letizia writes about the what, where and how of reading. I look forward to her posts like I once anticipated Vogue’s spring issue.
I share this beautiful and apropos post to wish you all a Very Simple, Very Easy, Very Merry Christmas.
P. S. Need a last minute gift idea? The Man Who Quit Money, by Mark Sundeen was my favorite read of the year.

Although Winter does not officially start for another couple of weeks here, the first of December always feels like the first day of the season to me.

I love the changes of the seasons and, other than the excitement of waking up to a snowstorm, my favorite part of Winter, is of course curling up with a good book in front of the fireplace with a cup of tea.

And the long evenings allow us to indulge in this activity a little more often than usual.

I came across this fascinating art installation created in Melbourne last June to celebrate their “Light in Winter” Festival.  A group of artists called Luzinterruptus took books discarded by libraries and lit them from within.

The results are quite magical.

About vsvevg

Hello, I'm Abby Smith. I started this blog in 2010 to write about the pursuit of a self-sustainable life in rural Mexico. In 2015, my then-husband and I moved to Nicaragua, where we created a successful farm-to-table and in-house charcuterie program for a high-end beach resort. In 2022, with mad butchery and cheese-making skills under my belt, I started a sustainable food systems consulting business. Happily, I also have more time for my first love-- writing about food and the complexities of the simple life.
