December is upon us; the final month of what might be called, politely, an interesting year. From wildfires to worldwide protests, murder hornets to the Supernatural finale, and, in case anyone missed it – perhaps those who have been in hibernation since last Christmas? – The Pandemic, 2020 has been a trying one for all of us. I would say “Well Done!” to you all for getting through the year with such empathy and resilience, but I fear that may be tempting fate… After all, 2020 isn’t quite over with, yet, and none of us want the Giant Shark-Headed Space Spiders to descend upon the planet on New Year’s Eve, do we?
Whilst we can’t know for certain what 2021 will bring us, we can live in hope that brighter days will be fast approaching. And, if not, at least you can rely on SGS College LRC to provide you with top tier reading and viewing material to keep your spirits up!
So pull up a seat, settle in by the fire, and roast some chestnuts as you take a look at our Bookflix highlights for the month. Discover our newest resources and our currently most popular resources, as well as our seasonal picks. Whether you are feeling like the long lost sibling of Buddy the Elf and Rudolph, or the secret child of Ebenezer Scrooge and The Grinch, SGS LRC has something for you!
