Since I no longer get a live tree, I needed a bit of Christmas décor. I indulged in a book tree:
Book tree

but also decided to make good use of all my Christmas/winter pop-up books:
A pop-up Christmas!

(Note, too, the pop-up ornament sitting on the upper right-hand edge of the screen.)

I spent a good part of yesterday at the Art Institute. There was a reception and a lecture about the Thorne Rooms, followed by a viewing of the ones that are decorated for the holidays, in the company of the curator.

Then up to Fullerton Hall for a reading by Peter Sís and two local actors of his book, The Conference of the Birds, along with parts of the original of Farid al-Din Attar, accompanied by slides of his illustrations, which are gorgeous. I bought the book, of course. The paper is wonderful, heavy and textured; it makes you want to stroke it!

Have you seen bookczuk's book tree? She "stole" the idea from someone on Facebook.

I did! I think I first saw these last year. There's a library in California with a humongous one! They seem to have become quite popular in the last few years.
