Since July 2010, TNBBC has been bringing authors and readers together every month to get behind the book! This unique experience wouldn't be possible without the generous donations of the authors and publishers involved.
It's the first of the month and you know what that means.
It's time to bring you July's Author/Reader Discussion book!
Awwww Yeaaaah! We're celebrating Christmas in July, 80's style!!
We will be reading and discussing 8 Bit - Christmas
with author Kevin Jakubowski
The author has generously agreed to give away up to 15 copies of his book...
Print (for US residents only) and digital formats PDF or MOBI (open internationally)
Here is the Goodreads description to whet your appetite:
It's 1980-something and all nine-year-old Jake Doyle wants for Christmas is a Nintendo Entertainment System. No Jose Conseco rookie card, no GI Joe hovercraft, no Teddy friggin' Ruxpin--just Nintendo. But when a hyperactive Shih Tzu is accidentally crushed to death by a forty-two-inch television set and every parent in town blames Nintendo, it's up to Jake to take matters into his own hands. The result is a Christmas quest of Super Mario Bros. proportions, filled with flaming wreaths, speeding minivans, lost retainers, fake Santas, hot teachers, snotty sisters, "Super Bowl Shuffles" and one very naked Cabbage Patch Kid. Told from a nostalgic adult perspective, 8-Bit Christmas is a hilarious and heartfelt look back at the kid pop culture of the 1980s.
Oh my gosh! You've sooo got to read that, right?
