As you already know from my post last week (where you’ll find the concept and the topics), I invented a new meme to celebrate the Jewish holiday of Hanukkah with all of my book blogging friends, of all races, creeds, religions, genders, and whatever. I’m calling it…
The Chocolate Lady’s
Eight Candle Book Tag Link Party!
This post is being published just as Jews in Israel light the fifth candle for the fifth day of Hanukkah. I have chosen one book for each night on bookish topics (the topics and rules can be found on this post, here). Also, you will find my Link Party at the bottom of each of these posts so anyone who wants to can join in the fun.
Remember, you don’t have to be Jewish to participate!
Here is my choices for:

Five-Day Work Week:
A book that you felt reading it was hard work, but you were glad you kept at it and finished reading it.
I don’t often read long books, because my mild dyslexia makes me such a slow reader. However, I was challenged earlier this year to read the very long and expansive “Paris: The Epic Novel of the City of Lights” by Edward Rutherfurd. It wasn’t only the length of this book that was daunting to me, but the fact that it follows such a large number of characters from six different families over seven centuries! My dyslexia make keeping names straight hard for me, so I’m glad I read this as a print book which had a list of the cast of characters and their relationships in the beginning that I could refer to when needed. I don’t think I could have finished reading it without that, but I’m very glad I did!
