2010 The Christmas Spirit Reading Challenge

Hi Everyone!
I am signing up for a Christmas Challenge. Like Halloween I only sign up for one holiday theme challenge at a time and well, let's be honest, I really try not to over "challenge" myself the whole year. I like to have fun and the holidays are a really good time to do it with my reading!!
Michelle at The True Book Addict is one of my favorite fellow bloggers and
she is hosting this challenge.

Here are the rules:

  • challenge will run from Friday, November 26, 2010 (Black Friday) through January 6, 2010 (Twelfth Night or Epiphany).
  • cross overs with other challenges is totally permitted AND encouraged!
  • These must be Christmas novels, books about Christmas lore or a book of Christmas short stories (sorry, no children's books, but YA novels are okay).
  • visit this POST for a list of new Christmas books for 2010. Also, Richard Paul Evans has a new book out this year, Promise Me. His Christmas books are among my favorites during the Christmas season.
  • Levels:
--Candy Cane: read 1 book
--Mistletoe: read 2-4 books
--Christmas Tree: read 5 or 6 books (this is the fanatic level...LOL!)

Sign up here:

I have not decided what I am going to read or what level yet. I know I will read Wishin' and Hopin' by Wally Lamb due to an already scheduled blog tour but aside from that...well, I'm leaving it open!

Hope you join!

Happy Reading and as always, thanks for stopping by!

Hey I might be able to swing this one... I mean, everyone should be able to do Candy Cane level, right?

Cheryl said...

how about "Matchless" by Gregory Maguire?

Marce said...

I have 3 planned so I should join this one. A Mary Higgins Clark, one for review and Augusten B Christmas memoir.

Happy reading.

Yay! So glad you're joining the challenge! Can't wait to see what you read. Thanks for spreading the word too!

Oops...I missed the part of your post where you mentioned Wishin' and Hopin'. I'm going to read it too. I'm not on the blog tour, but I bought it at a library sale awhile back and I've been wanting to read it since last year.

Oh, and I'm so honored to be one of your fave fellow bloggers! Same back at you!

I'm going to have to give that Candy Cane level a shot--I've got to read Dicken's A Christmas Carol anyway!

Hi Michelle,

Your blog is so beautiful! I have enjoyed scrolling through and reading your posts, and I will be back.

Thanks for posting about this challenge; I overextended myself this year on challenges, but I can't resist Christmas books, so I'm off to sign up :)
