Hello, Sweeteas,

Winter break is just around the corner. I love that so many of you have come to take a look at the Holiday Books and New Books displays and have checked out awesome books to read during the break. 🙂

This holiday season consider reading a Christmas-related classic or two such as The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe by C.S. Lewis or Little Women by Louisa May Alcott or A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens. You could read the books and then watch the movies. Happiness!

Here are more suggestions:
