This is changed up a bit this year, to give everyone some additional scope in these Covid times.

The brief 2020 rules:

❄ This challenge runs from December 1st to December 31st

❄ The books should depict Christmas, Hanukah, Kwanzaa or other December seasonal holiday – in the title, on the cover picture or the setting of the book. Google may give you additional ideas, although books correlating to them may be harder to find, such as St Lucia, Boxing Day or Omisoka

❄ Any type of release will count – wild, OBCZ, LFL or controlled.

No established prizes or anything, just for the fun of it and to get some books moving again.


to give everyone some additional scope in these Covid times

Thank you.
