Book shopping

hallelujahI’ve been doing a little Black Friday shopping, and was happy to see an Amazon code for $5 off of a $20 book purchase. Enter GIFTBOOK17 at checkout.

You probably already have books in your cart, but, if not, here are some ideas:

Christmas picture books – The link is to reviews of 20 of our favorites. It makes me so happy to read Christmas books!

Our new Christmas read-aloud – We’re going to try out The Christmas Mystery by Jostein Gaardner. I like the format and premise, and the kids usually love mysteries.

We’re listening to/learning about Handel’s Messiah together – I just finished reading Hallelujah by Cindy Rollins and I am super impressed. The book is a combination of short daily portions of the Messiah to listen to daily, the Scripture passage associated with the piece, and detailed notes about what to listen for musically. Interspersed with the daily readings are inspiring essays about integrating traditions and music into your Advent season. Highly recommended.

Hidden Christmas: The Surprising Truth Behind the Birth of Christ – I usually like Tim Keller’s work, so I am looking forward to reading this recent release.

Behold the Lamb of God – I’m reading this for an Advent Biblestudy. It comes highly recommended.

Box Sets – If you need a gift for a young reader, boxed sets are a good use of coupons like this one. The link is to one of our favorites–The Mysterious Benedict Society series.

Also book-related – If you’re a Harry Potter fan, the boxed set of the movies is on CRAZY sale today, just $23.99 for the eight movies!

  1. Singers from all the Lutheran churches in my city come together to present selections from the Messiah on the first weekend in December every year; this is my sixth year participating. It’s such a wonderful experience (and beautiful music, obviously!), and not just because of the soprano oxygen-deprivation high you get singing the Hallelujah Chorus. 😀 I’m definitely getting the Hallelujah book. Thank you for bringing it to my attention!
