Celebrate Jolabokaflod with these Christmas Books

by Donna Huber


Iceland has a cool tradition of giving books and reading them on Christmas Eve. I recently read in a book that mentions the tradition and it is thought that it got started because books were hard to get and could be expensive in Iceland so it was a real treat to get a book. Apparently, new books are released to coincide with the celebration. This Country Living article mentions that the tradition started during WWII as paper was one of the few things not rationed in Iceland. For me Christmas Eve always feels like the quietest night of year - like a hush falls upon the earth. So really it is a perfect time for curling up with a good book. And of course, I have a few suggestions for Christmas books. If you are still looking for a gift or don't want to read Christmas stories, be sure to check out my list of favorite reads this year. And if you are needing a bit more relaxation before reading, I recommend 40 minutes of blanket yoga.

The Mysterious Bookshop Presents the Best Mystery Stories of the Year: 2021 edited by Lee Child ~ a Review

by Susan Roberts


The short story can't expand on multiple themes, characters, subplots, and dozens of different settings in the same way a novel can. There is just no room. ... The length, number of characters, and the condensed structure make short story writing more difficult than novel writing.

Simple Secrets to a Happy Life by Luci Swindoll ~ a Review

by Donna Huber


Back in November when I was putting my books back on my new bookshelf I didn't have quite enough room to put all my review copies on one shelf. This shelf is for books that I accepted for review quite some time ago. I was so excited to be pitch books that I didn't do a good job of saying no or really knowing how many books I could read in a year. Well, I couldn't fit one book on the shelf so I decided to read one. I picked up Simple Secrets to a Happy Life Luci Swindoll.

Shadow Atlas: Dark Landscapes of the Americas by Josh Malerman, Jane Yolen, et al. ~ a Review

by MK French


Some lands belong to shadows and spirits, and these haunted places are not for the living. They exact a terrible price and those who explored them in the past left behind instructions for the living, which eventually became superstition and ghost stories. To reclaim this lost knowledge, the Umbra Arca Society was created and maps were drawn of the explorers' travels.
