Aah, winter break! A much needed vacation from the pressures of schoolwork, and finally, some free time to read WHATEVER YOU WANT! For our December chat, we want to hear from you what your plans are for winter break. What books are you saving up for an all-day-long reading marathon while wrapped up in blankets by the fire, snow falling outside, and some kind person constantly refilling your mug of hot chocolate? Or maybe you are escaping winter to go on a tropical vacation – lucky you! What books will you bring to read on the beach? Come to the chat and let us know your recommendations for the perfect Winter Break book.

  11. _Lucian_

    Lol, I was repeating things so much in the chat! It wasn’t showing that I sent it on my computer and I couldn’t see some peoples responses!

  12. empoleon333

    This winter I plan to have like a marathon of reading books. I mostly like reading books that are fantasy.

  13. laffytaffy101

    That sounds cool. I plan to read ALL ABOUT the holocaust because it’s actually very interesting! BUT ALSO VERY SAD AND NOT FUNNY!!!

  14. C1998

    I will try to chat ;)
    I have been reading some AWESOME books at my house!!! Hope to see you at chat. Chat with me if you can :)

  15. C1998

    I think you should read the Harry Potter seires, Fablehaven 1-5, and Maple Street. Please don`t judge a book by its cover. I did that with these books until my mom read them and pushed me into them. A good auther is Gail Carson Levine. His books are the funest. For winter vacation I would like you to at least have fun with X-Mas and try to read at least one of these books.

  16. larissa

    i get u during school the teachers are like read this its math related or read this its socal studies related but now were free to read whatever we want im the kind of person who dose not like to be told what to use especly when it comes to books!!!!!

  17. smileydough

  18. Iceskategirl

  19. cakefrosting76

  20. Rachel

    I always read Christmas After All:The Great Depression Diary of Minnie Swift during December.It’s been my personal tradition for 3 or 4 years now.I like to,each day,read the diary entry for that day in the book.

    Well, at least I’ll be warm (ok, not warm, but still warmer) then last year for winter break, because I’m going to the west coast. No snow this year for Christmas! I’m gonna be reading, bike riding (what! you say?), yes, bike riding in the cold weather, and hanging out with family. Sounds like a good break to me!
