Something light for December?

Caboose said, "My choice for a December read would be something light, that we could laugh and enjoy a little silliness."

Tricia said, "I really like this idea. Though, I have no idea what that would be. I've been wanting to read Cold Comfort Farm for some time, but haven't gotten to it. That might be fun."

Bonnie said, "I agree that a light-hearted book sounds good for December. I looked up the one Tricia suggested, Cold Comfort Farm by Stella Gibbons, which is a satire on the English Gothic novel ... and it's only 256 pages long, a short book for the busy month of December. Amazon offers three 'Most Helpful Customer Reviews' that make this book sound like it could really be a lot of fun. Click HERE for the three reviews ... and click on the picture of the book above to enlarge it and read about the characters."

Though I had given us another day to vote, it really looks like The Boy in Striped Pajamas will be our November book, and we can add The Memory Keeper's Daughter to the next list for voting.

Here's the post with all books suggested for December.

I've looked into some of the December books. Kingsolver sounds too pamphlettistic (is that a word?) so I would NOT choose that one. But I agree with Carole that a FUN book is the best choice for December. So I say yes to 'Cold Comfort Farm'.

I've read Cold Comfort Farm and thought it was funny. It has my vote for the December book.
