  3. I can’t wait to pair some of these critters with the Peek a Boo back drop – so so cute! I love to read historical fiction – I’ve read Gone with the Wind so many times, my mom has bought me a new copy three times because I read it to tatters!

  4. I mostly read the Bible and other religious publications. But, I do enjoy an occasional good mystery. Of course, I’d need a cute bookmark…

  49. I love these bookmark sets! I am in two book clubs and for Christmas this year I gave everyone a Lawn Fawn bookmark with the For you, Deer stamp set and coordinated dies! My favorite books to read are classic fiction and mysteries. I just read Eleanor Oliphant and really enjoyed it as well as Miss Pettigrew lives for a day.

  50. This set is SO cute. I laughed out loud at “This is where I fell asleep” – that is so me!
    I prefer fiction, and the books I pick out to read tend to be thrillers or have some kind of mystery.

  51. Oh my goodness, I love those little hanging animals and my favorite card is the party table! As for books, I don’t have much time to read lately but when I do read it’s usually non-fiction like health care or child care books.

  52. I can’t ever pass up a cute critter and these are just adorable. I love the bookmarks and that birthday card.

  53. I like to read all kinds of books. But right now I have been listening to books through audible. I tend to listen and re-listen to the same book over and over while I am crafting. That way if I toon out for a moment (concentrating on what I am doing), I don’t care if I miss what is going on in the book.

  54. Books: fantasy, detective, mysteries, but they have to have a happy ending.
    I love the sentiments in this stamp set.

  55. I have not read a book in ages, mostly do online. But I do get a lot ot of craft magazines, that counts too, right. Thanks for sharing your great ideas

  56. I love lace borders and simply celebrate. They make such adorable additions to cards. As far as reading, I read almost any genre. My husband has alway said if I ran out of books, I would read the back of cereal boxes.

  57. I read a lot of mysteries or police stories.
    Also read a lot of cozies. Right now I’m reading
    “Plum Tea Crazy” by Laura Childs. Before that
    I read “Amemrican by Day” by Derek Miller. It’s
    about a Norwegian detective who comes to America
    to look for her brother. You can tell I have
    eclectic tastes. thanks for sharing the new
    release. Wonderful cards.

  58. I love mysteries!
    One of my favorites is Jana Deleon. These books are hysterical and
    the mystery is challenging.

  59. I am a fantasy and adventure reader mostly! I wish I had more time to read books though to expand those horizons!

  60. Oh, favorite reading Janet Evanovich when I need a sweet, fun and laugh out loud giggles!! Harry Potter , well just because. Dan Brown!! And I can remember the name, but Girl with the dragon tattoo series.

  61. I like to read smutty comedic humor. Chelsea Handler is my favorite, but I also enjoy books by other comedians.

  62. Oh, the elephant and deer are so cute! Dystopias are my favorite kinds of books to read, they make me appreciate how lucky we are to have the freedoms we do; science fiction as well. Thanks for the chance to win! 🙂

  63. So much inspiration in this post! I like reading biographies — and discovering how people’s circumstances have shaped who they are; and how they have overcome obstacles they faced.

  64. Lately, I am really enjoying mysteries/thrillers. I usually listen to audiobooks at work, so they have to be engaging!

  65. So many adorable makes in this post! 🙂 I really enjoy the Dan Brown novels, and similar genre of books. I read all kinds of genres, however, when I just feel like going into the “world of imagination” 🙂

  79. Oh my !! This little elephant is so adorable !! It’s been a while since I’ve read a book but I like the documentary ones.

  80. Thank you for continuing with more characters to the bookmark/hanging around style that I had to have last release, I so enjoy when there is a window or a way to see the backsides, too funny! We all love to read in our house and I gravitate to mysteries, thrillers, and crime fiction.

  81. Super cute critters… love their little behinds 🙂 I love reading fantasy, although lately, I’ve been re-reading Jane Austen. She puts me in a wonderful place…

  82. I am totally in love with the little sloth! I had the chance to see one closely in my home country. I enjoy reading all types of books. Dan Brown and Agatha Christie are my favorites!
