Christmas Read-a-Long 2015

christmas 01

As November draws to a middle, it’s time to get excited for our Christmas Read-a-Long!

For the last few years, we’ve embraced the festive spirit via fiction (because OF COURSE!) and this year will be no different…despite my protestations to the contrary!

Last year, White Swan settled on Julius Ceasar, after our brilliant Augustus read. Previously, we welcomed LBC Puffins with A Christmas Carol. This year, it’s time for LBC Outlaws to shine with a Crime and Thriller choice:

 

THE ADVENTURES OF THE CHRISTMAS PUDDING

AGATHA CHRISTIE
