Christmas Book Flood | Recommending reading

Book of the Day

Please visit our Book Bulletin crowdfunding project at CrowdPatch to buy recommendations for our 2017/18 catalogue and to volunteer your skills, experience and contacts. All funds raised will support not-for-profit Jolabokaflod CIC’s forthcoming programme of events.

Adventure calendar

Welcome to our Book Bulletin 2017/18 countdown: from the First Day of Winter (on 21 October 2017); through the Christmas seasonInternational Book Giving Day (otherwise known as Valentine’s Day), the First Day of Summer, World Book and Copyright Day and Icelandic Republic Day; to International Literacy Day (8 September 2018)

This online ‘Adventure calendar’ works in a similar way as traditional, printed Advent versions. Instead of each window remaining unopened until the appointed date arrives, this Jolabokaflod CIC feature only reveals the next ‘Book of the Day’ recommendation on the appropriate day in the calendar, published one day at a time during the period of the Book Bulletin 2017/18 crowdfunding campaign from the start of BookExpo America and the New York Rights’ Fair (30 May 2018) to International Literacy Day (8 September 2018) – a total of 102 days

Three celebrity recommendations were given ‘Book of the Day’ status to mark the three trade days at the Frankfurt Book Fair in 2017 (11 October | 12 October | 13 October).

Day by day, work your way down the links – as they appear – until you have covered every part of the picture.
