2013 Virtual Advent Tour: Day 5

Today we are glad to be visiting with some of the long term supporters of the Virtual Advent Tour. Whilst we love all the new people that participate, Kelly and I are always grateful when people love the tour so much that they come back year after year! Please take some time to visit

One of the things that we have always tried to do as part of the Virtual Advent tour is highlight other events throughout book blog land. Normally we update them in the sidebar, but having previously highlighted #estellagram earlier in the tour, I thought I would share another event today.

Kim from Reading Matters is hosting the Book Bloggers Advent Calendar. Kim has asked some of her blogging friends (including me!) to share one of the favourite reads of 2013 and each day she shares one of those recommendations.

I have to say that the range of recommendations is as broad as it is interesting — and no one appears to have chosen the same title. The suggestions include everything from prize-winning novels to little-heard-of gems deserving of more attention. Some were published this year, many were not.
Maybe you will discover a fantastic read during the between now and Christmas. And if you were wondering, I shared a gushy, gushy review about the audio version of On the Jellicoe Road by Melina Marchetta, which was revealed on day 4.

Do you know of any bloggy holiday events that you would like to share with us?
