I am sure that many readers will already be familiar with the wonderful Letters from Father Christmas from JRR Tolkien – the collection of letters his lucky children received from the North Pole during the 1930s and 40s.
They are lavishly illustrated in typical Tolkien style and have lost none of their freshness and appeal over the years. I have long enjoyed this classic, and this year I discovered to my delight that as well as paperback and a version with real pull-out letters, this lovely book is now available on Kindle. This means I can enjoy it on my ipad and zoom in to see all the details that I can’t always quite make out (yes, I have reached the age of reading glasses!) in the printed book. I have noticed that more illustrated books are now appearing in kindle versions – I guess that’s as tablet computers are becoming more popular and affordable. I know that Kirsty Allsopp’s “Craft” book is also on Kindle – does anyone else know any other nice books available in this format?
(Apart from my own Hints & Tips book, that is !!!) Please do leave a comment below if you can recommend some nice crafty or Christmas Kindle reading for me – I’d love to hear what you’re enjoying this year, and maybe try them for myself.
Oh, and I will have some exciting news to share tomorrow, another free Bustle & Sew Christmas project – but this one is in aid of a very good cause. Here’s a sneak preview for you …
