Today's post is a little something to get you in the mood for the festive holidays. During this busy period it can be difficult to find time to sit and read so audio books are a perfect solution, see my previous blog post on this here.
My first choice is Maeve Binchy, This Year It Will Be Different and other stories. This is an easy and entertaining listen with some nice twists. Just the right length whilst you are wrapping some last minute gifts. This Year It Will Be Different is my favourite on this disc, and I think it's all one we can related to in some way, after all who hasn't sworn that this year their won't spend so much, or will write their cards earlier or buy less food or drink. The stories are read by Kate Binchy, who I find very pleasing to listen too.

Poor Ethel finds herself "making" Christmas every year whilst the rest of her family watch it happen around then, this year she vows it will be different. She doesn't complain to her family, she simply doesn't do all the things they are expecting and it appears her family are finally getting the message. Over the next few days they ask her not to come in to the kitchen and not to come home too early from work. Ethel's excitement brews and one day after going for a pre-Christmas drink with her friend she comes home to find the family waiting in the kitchen with a surprise, but it might not be quite what Ethel had in mind!
The other stories are very pleasant too and if you are a Maeve Binchy fan this is definitely one I would recommend. It's available in Paperback and eBook too.
