Just a little heads-up that the “inbetweeny” issue of Shiny New Books is now up here!

hollyI was very happy to be able to provide a review of a very lovely new book from Penguin in a Christmas Classics series they have – “The Night Before Christmas” by Nikolai Gogol! Of, course, he’s one of my favourite Russians, and not a name you might obviously connect with a Christmas tale, but this is a wonderful little story presented in one of the nicest editions I’ve seen in a long time!


My review is here, and of course SNB is stuffed full of wonderful reviews, recommendations and interesting content as usual – and great for Christmas present ideas!

(Many thanks to Penguin for kindly providing a review copy!)
