December 2013 MIP Book Club Selection…

We’ve been reading some pretty serious stuff these past two months and I decided we needed a change of pace for the very busy month of December in three ways: A) The book should not have too many chapters for us to try and digest in one sitting due to other holiday commitments, B) We need a good laugh, and C) It should be something about Christmas.

Having been brought up as probably the only protestant in “Catholic Central,” aka Indiana, I decided that it was time to learn a little bit more about the world of nuns. Yes, nuns. So, how is a book about nuns going to make you laugh? The title should make you smile at the very least and tell you great things are in store in the pages ahead. And it only has 8 chapters, although the chapters may be a little long at times. My advice? Get on your treadmill with this book or take this book with you as the entertainment while you travel to see the relatives.

So, how does a book about nuns meet Criteria C of being about Christmas?  Well, admittedly I’m stretching here, but the author’s name is Jane Christmas. No joke. I hope she realizes her name is politically incorrect. How does one quit using their name if it’s not P.C.??? Hmmm….

Without further adieu, here is the December 2013 MIP Book Club Selection:
