Christmas Book Flood | Recommending reading

Advent calendar

Please visit our current Book Bulletin crowdfunding project at CrowdPatch to buy recommendations for our Winter catalogue and to volunteer your skills, experience and contacts. All funds raised will support the not-for-profit Jolabokaflod Book Campaign’s programme for 2019.

A Christmas tree of delights

Welcome to our Jolabokaflod countdown to Christmas, when millions of people will receive books to read over the festive season and beyond.

This online Advent calendar works in a similar way as traditional, printed versions. Instead of each of 24 windows remaining unopened until the appointed date in December arrives, this Jolabokaflod version has links to page that will only be filled with Christmas-related goodies on the appropriate day in the calendar.

Published one day at a time during the month of December 2016, each successive day will reveal ‘Book of the Day’ recommendations behind each link as when as jokes, pictures and fabulous facts about books, reading, Iceland and Christmas.

Day by day during December, work your way down the tree of link decorations until you have covered every part of the Christmas tree picture.
