Hello and welcome to the start of season 4! In today's episode I give a few updates and share some news about our new Cozy Christmas Book Club. You can find details on my social media accounts.

The main portion of the episode today, I begin reading Charles Dickens' novella The Chimes. It was released at Christmas time the year after A Christmas Carol was published. It tells the story of Toby Veck and a mysterious encounter he has with some goblins that haunt the church bells...

This novella will be read in parts over the next 8 episodes. Along the way I will have some guests on to chat, news to share, and lots of wonderful cozy books to talk about. I'm so excited to get this new season started - Let's get counting down to Christmas 2023!
