On the Night Table [6]: Leaving on a Jet Plane

chocolat2 chocolatWe are about to go on our annual winter holiday. This is the time when we dive into the Christmas madness and fly out on Christmas Eve. Crazy, right?

Actually, we’ve been doing this for years. Aside from a couple of missed flights, and three consecutive years of lost luggages, I say, we’re doing alright.

I’m on an extended holiday. I don’t go back to work until January 5th. Β I’m looking forward to not doing anything while we’re away. I want to read, explore the bookstores, and just be.

For the next few days (almost two weeks!), I planned on devouring brain junk food. No disrespect to Ms. Florand, I just mean that I’m going for easy reads on my holidays. So I downloaded the first six books of her Amour et Chocolat series.

Rachel & Jasprit of The Readers’ DenΒ swear by its decadence, and I tend to trust these two girls when it comes to romance. I don’t read these type of books too often, but since they come highly recommended by a couple of friends I trust, I’m sure I’ll enjoy them as well.

I hope you guys are taking it easy today, though I know it’s tough. Also, enjoy your time with your families!


  • I don’t go back to work until January 5th either! And three years of lost luggage…..jeeezuz

  • This seems like a super cute, lighthearted series! I hope you enjoy it πŸ™‚

  • Here’s an experiment for you: How long can you live on chocolate and only chocolate? πŸ˜€ I’d say a life time. People telling us we need to cut down on chocolate are LIARS.

    – Love, Felicia
