Happy December! BOOKS OF THE MONTH

Happy December dear Readers,

I have done everything I could to avoid writing to you all this morning since I  had no real 'good' idea for the December  BOM.  Maria is currently reading Room and says it is awesome.  That is on my list but I don't want to select a book knowing that some of you have already consumed it.  Last year we read A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens and that was a struggle to read the old English and yet it was fun.  Last night we watched Family Man with Tea Leoni and Nicholas Cage and it reminded me how fun and touching remembering the importance of family and of being present in the moment.  So ... this month for our Book of the Month I suggest two books:
The Best Christmas Pageant EverThe Polar Express

As you may have guessed, this year I have an affinity for children's books.

The Best Christmas Pageant Ever is written by another Barbara, although we have never met, her husband and mine worked together years ago.

The Polar Express has become a modern icon in the Christmas realm and yet I don't remember seeing it or reading it before.

Well, there it is dear readers, this month's selections.  During the month please chime in with your favorite Christmas books, movies, stories, or memories.  Tonight ELF is on one of the stations and we have our DVR set to record - how about you???  It is a wonderful story!

Until next time, keep reading!

Barbara
