12 Days of Books

Day 4: Not so traditional Christmas books.

  1. A Christmas latke
  2. Santa with dreads
  3. An auntie who knows Santa
  4. The nativity story told with fun looking characters who are young, poor and definitely not blonde
  5. A bear who stays up for Christmas in a story that is perfect for the Hindu family with a Christmas tree.

In love with this!

Day 3: Audiobooks read by the author. 

Nothing beats an audiobook read by the author. These were my favorite two listens this past year. Alice Walker reading The Color Purple is nothing short of a religious experience.

Day 2: Books of Wonder New York, NY

I just went here for the first time ever, and I don’t know what took me so long. So many items were autographed and I met David Wiesner! If you are ever in New York visiting it is totally worth the trek.

12 Days of Books
Day 1: Penguin Classics illustrated by Ruben Toledo. 
It was love at first sight when I bought this edition of The Scarlet Letter last week. The fact that I didn’t buy several more in this series by him shows immense self control (and may be due to the fact I am still not done shopping for other people.)
