Welcome December

Christmas Bookshelf Advent Calendar/ Bodleian Libraries Shop Oxford University
Here it is...the first of December! Where has the year gone?
I just wanted to let you all know I have begun my seasonal page....Mary's Advent Calendar of Books. I started this a few years ago, and I enjoyed it so much that I decided to keep it as a feature every year. Each day (up until the 25tth of December), I'll post a daily suggestion for a wonderful book of the season. Some of them will have Christmas themes; others are more generally winter related.There will be picture books, novels for young readers, young adult books....some old favourites, some brand new! I hope to have a little something to suit everyone; but mostly, I hope you'll all enjoy them.
To start the page off right, my first entry is Moominland Midwinter by Tove Jansson. I just love Moomins!
So, keep watching....there will be a new book each day.
p.s. The image I've used above is from the Bodleian Libraries Shop, Oxford University. I just thought it was perfect! If you're interested in more information on the Christmas Bookshelf Advent Calendar, here's the link:

  1. Lovely idea, and a great start—'Moominland Midwinter' is a real gem that demands regular re-reading by young and old alike. Looking forward to the rest of the calendar.
