We also do a book a day...but we wrap up christmas movies too. i only let them pick those on nights I know we have time for them.One suggestion for CHEAP christmas books is Scholastic. I ordered a TON this year from there.
Michelle, wrapping Christmas movies is a great idea! I'm totally stealing that for next year. We'll give up watching videos for Advent except for Sundays or feast days or special movie days or something and then unwrap one of our Christmas movies. I better write this down now before I forget.
Oh, and I like Scholastic for books, too. My mom picks up a bunch of books for us at Goodwill and I order a bunch from PaperBackSwap. I do like to get hardcovers when I can because they last much longer, especially when some little ones (cough - Second Daughter) are so destructive.
Comments make me happy; thanks for speaking up!
