Book Nation By Jen Hot Picks


As the weather turns chilly, I am thinking about my winter hibernation tendencies and all I need to be prepared.  Here are a few of my favorite things for this time of year.

Nothing makes me happier than to snuggle up under one of these huge, soft blankets while I read or watch tv.  Super warm faux fur throw blanket 


My kids are grown, but I still have these one size fits all gloves in coat pockets and extras stashed in the car, just in case!  One size fits all kids gloves


Butternut squash soup is one of my favorites and it is so simple to make.  The most fun is the blending at the end with this great tool!  Cuisinart immersion blender


Bad weather can lead to power outages and nothing is better than these push lights.  The bathroom mirror reflects the light and I can take out my contact lenses, no problem!  So much easier than holding a flashlight.  Battery operated push lights


Sunday afternoon with a hot chocolate and one of these great puzzles on the dining room table is something I look forward to.  This brand, Re-Marks, is one of my favorites and this Heroines book cover puzzle looks fun.


I keep track of what I read on Goodreads and of course then I write Book Nation by Jen, but if I wasn’t writing the blog, I would definitely want this book journal!  A great gift for everyone in your book group!
