I am going to read Freaky Green Eyes and Night by Elie Wiesel separately on my own… Join in if you wish with those, leave me a comment and I will do a post about them once I have read them.
We also need a Christmas book to read in November finishing 21st December, the solstice. Recommendations for this would be good. I am wondering if anyone is interested in The Snow Child which is 448 pages long or to go with Dickens Chimes which is 175 pages? What are your thoughts on this?
I will make a voting button and add it to the side bar later.
