Pg 139. “Asking scientists not to look into an open box was like asking cats not to saunter through an open door. It simply wasn‘t practical.”

The Extinguished Lights by Isaac Bashevis Singer was the final of our #holidayreads for #litereads

I found this Hanukkah ghost story to be sweet and much like a fable, a lovely read for the holidays. I also included a fun fact about one of the Yiddish names featured in the story as part of my full review (link below). Be sure to share your thoughts on this story. Our first pick for the new year will be available tomorrow

1. Total Books= 328 (Most of these were picture books)

2. #TBRReads= 23; #ImpulseReads= 30; #HolidayReads= 276

3. Yes! Lots of new authors and several reads that will become #HolidayTraditions.

4. My favorite game was Guess the Book Cover. Even without the games though, I loved the teamwork and seeing different traditions and holiday photos. #TeamFestivus was the best! 🙌

Marina_h I read 38 books but there was some short ones in that bunch. 14.of them were on my TBR and yes there were some new authors. I discovered Matt Haig during the winter games. I liked reading all the #Holidayreads and also watching #HolidayMovies. Had I had more time during December I would have watched some more 😊 3w
bullbunny Sadly no. There was 2. This year yes, this month.. no since I didn't accomplish what I set out to read. Just a bunch of various random things. Favorite thing finding the memes there was some funny ones! 3w
kezzlou85 I read 17 books in December. Most were on my TBR and I discovered Leigh Bardugo, whom I'd heard of but never read. I really enjoyed the which elf would you be and the short questions like these. Been lots of fun. 3w

Story Behind Kwanzaa | Melissa Rae Shofner
Mehso-so

Very short children's book that literally is described by its title. It gives a very basic understanding about some of the principles of Kwanzaa. I felt it could have been expanded upon a little bit more than it was, but probably good for very young children. #holidayreads
