Winter Comfort Book Challenge

I have recently been taking part in the Winter Comfort Book Challenge over on Instagram. Every day, we are given a prompt and take a photo to do with that prompt. Here is the list if you’re interested in following along:


One of the things I’m enjoying is this is something started in the Southern Hemisphere. It’s winter and it’s freezing. It’s nice to be taking part in a challenge that is in step with our seasons.

It’s been a lot of fun finding books and posing them for the prompts. My kids have been helping recommend books too. I’m also discovering some great new people to follow on Instagram as well as some new books to add to my To Be Read pile.

To be honest, I couldn’t resist putting up a picture of Swallow Me, NOW! on Day 9…

Swallow Me NOW! for Day 9...
