Book Floodflood of books
The Christmas book flood, Jolabokaflod, refers to the period between October and December when most books are published and purchased in Iceland.
It' Blood of Christmas Books!
And if you are as fond of literature as we are, then you should know the Islandic traditions of Jólabókaflóð. Each Christmas Eve the Icelanders share their book and read it for the rest of the night. This calm, straightforward custom has attracted more and more interest internationally over the past year.
We hope that it will prevail; it is a long standing custom that we like to leave behind us.
Each Christmas Eve in Iceland they give each other a book and read the book - this is called'Jólabókaflóðið' or the flood of the book.
Each Christmas Eve in Iceland they give each other a book and read the book - this is called'Jólabókaflóðið' or the flood of the book. Our goal was to make a flood of book in the city of Heffield and to give a book to as many kids as possible for Christmas. When we can buy more than they can use, we will contact other charitable organizations to get more book for our family.
We are not staying here, so please help us achieve our 2000? goal so that we can get to more people. We also accept contributions of new, unpackaged babies' and children's literature at Sheffield Library until December 8. that are currently receiving donations: Central, Hillsborough Children's, Broomhill, Highfield, Ecclesall.
Ecclesfield, Southey, Burngreave, Chapeltown, Totley, Frecheville, Jordanthorpe, Newfield Green & Gleadless sollten alle ab Montag, den 27. November Spenden annehmen. We have also nominated two independant reviewers to verify where the funds are going: the resident writer Beverley Ward and Baby Basics will ensure that we are on the right track.
It is completely dependant on lovable individuals like you who are sharing their passion for literature and literacy with our kids, so all contributions, large or small, are very grateful and please make it known.
