Christmas Reading Challenge - 2009

The True Book Addict is hosting a Christmas Reading Challenge for 2009.  For me Christmas would not be Christmas without a few books to get me in the holiday mood (I've been known to be a bit of a holiday Scrooge).

Now, on to the challenge details.

The Christmas Reading Challenge:

  • will run from Thanksgiving Day, November 26 through New Year's Eve, December 31, 2009
  • you can choose 1 - 3 books...I know it seems a small amount, but it's a busy time of year and the challenge is only a little over a month.
  • These must be Christmas novels, books about Christmas lore or a book of Christmas short stories (sorry, no children's books, but YA novel is okay).
My  List - (4 )

  1. The Christmas Dog; Melody Carlson  - very good
  2. The Holiday Grind; Cleo Coyle (review) - very good
  3. The Christmas List; Richard Evans - loved it!
  4. Wishin' and Hopin: A Christmas Story; Wally Lamb (review) - loved it!
