We’re decorating for the holidays, my roommate and I, the best way we know how. (Sparked by a picture my aunt left on my Facebook wall.) It leans a bit to the left, but all great trees are lopsided. I don’t know how many books are in it, I forgot to count as it went up. It’s not bad at all for a first effort, if I do say so myself.
I think this is a fine tradition. It’s a multi-denominational booktree, with many different genres represented. There are many wonderful books in the tree, that now shall not be read until after New Year’s. A bunch of them were either presents or recommendations from friends, family, and loves, and something about that just makes it feel like the holidays.
We’re going to decorate it more, with twinkle lights and ribbon, and presents underneath. But for now, here she is! The 2012 Book Fort Bookmas Tree!
