Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together. Since Christmas just ended a few days ago, we’re doing recent additions to our collections. I’m including ones I got for gifts and a few I ordered online afterward.

Happy holidays! TTT was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.
I have a serious book-buying problem, so after Christmas I’m not going to buy/ask for any physical copies of books for a while. It’s Kindle books and the library from here on out, people! 🙂
Title: Holidays on Ice
Author: David Sedaris
Genre: Humor/Short Stories
Number of Pages: 125

This piece is a little different, it’s written in third person and centers around Warren when he’s five years old, on Christmas Eve 1989. In case you’re wondering, I wrote Warren Cowell’s character from the beginning of the project to have certain behaviors consistent with Autism Spectrum Disorder (i.e. probably Asperger’s Syndrome.) I didn’t officially diagnose him because I didn’t think that should be the focus. For stories about Warren as an adult, click HERE, HERE, and HERE.–
