Throwback Thursday

Throwback Thursday December 21th 2013

Throwback Thursday is a weekly meme hosted by The Housework Can Wait and Never to fond of Books.

It's the nature of book blogging to focus mainly on new releases, but there are thousands of great books out there that haven't seen the "New Releases" shelf in years. We hope to be able to bring attention to some older titles that may or not be at the top of the current bestseller list, but still deserve a spot in your To-Be-Read pile.

You don't have to be a book blogger to participate! You can put up a Throwback Thursday post on your non-bookish blog; or if you don't have a blog at all you can use the comments to tell us about a book your remember fondly.

And NOW! We’re expanding! Throwback Thursday is no longer limited to just books! Throwback Thursday is dedicated to shining the spotlight on any book-related old favorites that need to be remembered.What’s your favorite classic television show or movie adaptation? What about your favorite song? Was your favorite toy a character from a book?
Here’s how it works:
  • Pick any media (or non-media item) released more than 5 years ago. Remember to keep it book-related!
  • Write up a short summary (include the title, author, and cover art, if applicable) and an explanation of why you love it. Make sure to link back to The Housework Can Wait and Never Too Fond of Books in your post.
  • Link up your post at The Housework Can Wait or Never Too Fond of Books.
  • Visit as many blogs as you can, reminisce about books you loved, and discover some “new” books for your TBR list – or some other classic. 
I'm a little late this week but better late than never. This week I picked a few of my favorite holiday movies I grew up watching. 

My throwbacks this week is...

White Christmas 
Musical from 1954

I have very fond memories of growing up watching this one with my mom. It was one of her favorites and it's one of mine. I can't have christmas without watching this one. I even know all the song by heart. Yup I'm a dork and proud of it. 

Christmas in Connecticut
TV Movie 1992

This one is based on a classic but I seem to be in love with the more recent one. However I'm going to check out the original one of these days. This is another must watch for Christmas. 

These are both my two favorites. I do have several more that I try to watch as well but these are the required ones. 

What's on your throwback?
