It’s that time of the year: time to prepare for Jewish Book Month, which takes place during the month preceding the Hanukkah holiday. (This year, that means that Jewish Book Month begins November 18 on the secular calendar.)
And I am ready—with something fun for all of us:
Presenting the #JewishBookMonth Reading Challenge!
(I hereby grant you permission to count any 5783 reads to date for this challenge—and to continue the fun beyond the first candle. Don’t feel pressured by the pre-Hanukkah month window, as worthy a “container” as it may be! Also, if you’re not sure where to start: I’ll simply observe that November is also Mizrahi Heritage Month.)
And, just in case you’re seeking titles to check off the “Short Story Collection” or “Poetry” boxes—or perhaps to help someone else do so—may I humbly suggest:
In any case, I’d love to hear about your #JewishBookMonth reading as it may connect with this challenge. Please bookmark this page and leave comments throughout the month. (I’ll do the same.)
