Christmas Book Flood

Our local schools have spent the past week talking with the children about how different countries and religions celebrate the holidays. So, a friend recently shared this graphic on facebook.

While it sounds like the perfect way to spend the night (what could be better than snuggling in bed with a good book and chocolate) I was curious if this was true and wanted to learn more. I came across this interesting article: Literary Iceland Revels in its Annual Christmas Book Flood.

Do you give books as gifts? Do you enjoy receiving them? What's your favorite?

What a wonderful way to celebrate Christmas. What a wonderful culture that values books so much.
Actually, I do give books sometimes. I try to give books my writing friends have had published It seems a nice way to support their success and share what I already know are good, good reads.

Hope you have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year, Sylvia.
