Jólabókaflóð 2016

Jólabókaflóð, Icelandic for "the book flood of Christmas" has enticed me for several years. Even though I’ve committed myself to reading off my shelves, then moving those books on to someone else, I do like to get a few new-to-me books. Who doesn't?!

So, I decided to get five books that I’ve been wanting to read for Jólabókaflóð 2016. I've even had these new acquisitions shipped to my sister's so that I can open them is gleeful excitement when I visit right after Christmas.

Icelanders will often read through the night on Christmas Eve for Jólabókaflóð. I cannot read through the night, but I can put those books on my shelf to read soon! 

What’s on your Jólabókaflóð this Christmas?
