December Holiday Newsletter 2017

Happy Holidays! As usual, my December newsletter is just a short one to wish you the best of the season and prosperity for 2018.
Also as per tradition, in lieu of cards, I made a donation. This year I chose the Canadian Cancer Society‘s Childhood Cancers Futures Fund, and donated on Giving Tuesday because they offered matching funds.And I thought of a great newsletter-sized gift anyway, in the form of a few literary top ten lists for your holiday reading. Or if you’re already away, as a treat when you’re back in January:
