Saturday SOOP: Hot 20 Book Ideas for 12/17/2016


Who’s ready for Christmas? Because I, certainly, am not. Christmas is in a week, ladies and gentlemen, and I still have presents to buy, cookies to bake, and an awful lot of things to do at work before the end of the year. Sound familiar? I thought it might. So I thought I’d make one suggestions for the lot of you: Don’t forget that Carey Azzara’s The Lottery Curse is on sale and will make the perfect gift for the fellow readers in your life. Order now and you might get it by the time the holiday rolls around!
