Shiny New Books - Christmas update!

A quick post to announce that we've uploaded the Shiny New Books Christmas update - over 30 new reviews and features!

There is a Christmassy theme to a lot of it - ghost stories, Christmassy fiction, ideal Christmas presents, and even a literary Christmas quiz. Go and have an explore!


  1. A literary Christmas quiz? That's for me!

  2. A lot of your books are really good, but I just read a great one. It is called Closing the Book on Santa Claus by Ron Chandler. It is a fictionalized narrative of why a Merry Christmas law is needed for our local schools. The story is about a father who tries to save his daughter’s holiday celebration after it is cancelled at the local school. He organizes a rally at city hall, but unexpected calamity prevails. Mr. Chandler shows why character education is as important to children as the memorization of facts and figures. I would recommend this book to other readers, both adults and children. It also includes four additional stories that will brighten everyone’s holiday season. I have decided to endorse this emerging writer because he reflects the values that we need in our society today.
