Anastasia Kinderman | 942 comments The December challenge is now up: https://www.goodreads.com/challenges/...

Theme-wise, try to read at least one book that deals with a winter holiday. This might be a book set during Christmas or a book on Kwanzaa, it's really up to you. :)

How many books can you read this month?

I've never read any. Have you tried Listopia?

I am assuming you mean adult books.
I don't remember reading an adult book - have bought children books in the past.

Here is a site by the founder of Kwanzaa - it has a lot of information.

Should the entire book deal with Christmas or can it be a few chapters or mentions of the holidays?

Few chapters or mention of the holidays works :)

Beverly linked to a website on it.

Wikipedia also has a page for your perusal: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kwanzaa

Thank you Anastasia and Beverly!


Anastasia Kinderman | 942 comments Beverly already asked what everyone's favorites reads were for 2015 in another thread so I'm going to ask: what was your LEAST favorite read in 2015?

Sorry I jumped the gun on the favorite read post.

This is a far easier question for me to answer as I usually do not finish a book if I do not like it but here are two that I finished that were my least fav reads of the year:

The Girl on the Train
The Misadventures of Awkward Black Girl
