December 2007 Highlights

DECEMBER is traditionally not a great month when it comes to new fiction and other things literary. This is the month for celebrity memoirs, cookbooks by celebrity chefs, interior decor, humour and other such stuff which make wonderful Christmas gifts. However, this is a great month to catch up on your reading.
