The challenge here is to find something that the characters in the books we are reading "made" - whether literally or figuratively.
In my first book today, "The Christmas Secret" by Donna VanLier, Christine's mother and children made Christmas cookies and candy.
In my second pick, "A Cadger's Curse", the heroine just made unlawful entry into the home of the man she is investigating.
Michael Franzese, the author of "Blood Covenant", Dave's current read was a "made man" in the Mob.Sponsored by www.mybitofearth.net
Charles Dickens’ “A Christmas Carol” is my favorite classic. It began in my childhood when my parents bought a record album (anyone else remember those?) of a dramatization of the book. I would lay in front of the great big family stereo (In a cabinet about 5′ long and 3′ high – similar to the console televisions of that day) and listen to it over and over.
I have already listened to one audio version of it this year and have selected it for our joint read as part of the November Novella challenge.
