It’s Christmas Day, and it’s also time to review my reading from the last month of 2016. It was a busy one!
However and whatever you celebrate, I hope your holidays have been joyful, and I hope you can enjoy some wintry reading time. After an extremely hectic and stressful fall, there’s nothing I’d like more than to curl up today with a good book.
- I was amused by the Diary of a Provincial Lady, at least when she wasn’t complaining about her money problems.
- The Makioka Sisters was a wonderful immersion in Japanese culture.
- Our readalong of Mayflower by Nathaniel Philbrick was a great way to end the Reading New England challenge.
- I took a look at the highly giftable Slightly Foxed Paperbacks.
- In anticipation of the upcoming film, Hidden Figures gives the facts behind a fascinating story.
