Living Christmas slowly. Books and movies, the perfect combination.
Less than a week for Christmas and we all want a big celebration and a break to finish the term. But these last days are also very busy because of the company dinners, the meetings with old friends, meetings to look back on the year, and all this together with children’s events, the extracurricular activities and buying gifts for everyone. However, I confess that I love it and I want to enjoy it, so I don’t want Christmas to slip through my hands. So I start filling my agenda with things I wish to do, and not as an obligation. I went to the film preview ‘SOBRE RUEDAS’, which I loved, it made me laugh and also think. The perfect comedy for these days, because apart from reading, we should also go to the cinema. It’s a pity I cannot dedicate more time to this hobby of mine.
This year we sold the options of different books to adapt them to the big screen or to a serie format, and the truth is that it makes me really happy when these two world cross their ways, and I hope we can do this more often because in both fields you can find great professionals.
Now is where I leave you with our advent calendar that is coming to an end, and I’m pretty sure it inspired all of you for some Christmas presents. A book is a really nice gift. Don’t forget that it is a great travelling companion and life partner. Merry Christmas!
