I'm Missing Readukkah

Yesterday was the first day of Hanukkah and the first day of Readukkah, sponsored by the Association of Jewish Libraries. Readukkah is a challenge to read a Jewish book during Hanukkah and review it on-line using the #Readukkah hashtag.

I wanted to take part, but I didn't make a book decision in time. My final choice was The Hired Girl by Laura Amy Schlitz, but I don't think I'll be able to get hold of a copy before December 14 when Hanukkah and Readukkah end.

Hey, but other people can take part.

What held me up on book selection was that I would have liked something like The Inn at Lake Devine by Elinor Lipman, which I read back in September. Except YA or middle grade. I will keep my eye open for Readukkah books for next year.

I like your idea of saving The Hired Girl for next year, but don't give up on this year's challenge! Just use a Jewish book you've already read - it doesn't have to be a new book. Hope to see your #Readukkah 2015 review soon!

Then you may hear from me.

Oh this looks so fun. Next year.

I believe there are six days left. If you wanted to use a picture book, you could still make it this year.
