The Christmas Spirit Reading Challenge

The Christmas Spirit Reading Challenge

I'm joining one last reading challenge for 2011. It's the Christmas Spirit Reading Challenge hosted by The True Book Addict at The Christmas Spirit blog. The challenge runs from November 21, 2011 through January 6, 2012. I've decided to join at the Candy Cane Level, which means I need to read one Christmas book during this period. I'm also signing up for the additional Visions of Sugar Plums level, which means I need to read Christmas books with my children and share what we read.

For the one adult novel, I'm going to read Jacob T. Marley by R. William Bennett, which I got from NetGalley. I'm looking forward to it because I read another Christmas book by Bennett last year (The Christmas Gift) and really enjoyed it.

For the books I read with my kids, I'm sure the list will vary. But here are the ones we have on our shelves and will definitely read:
  • The Night Before Christmas by Clement C. Moore
  • The Polar Express by Chris Van Allsburg
  • The Christmas Magic by Lauren Thompson
  • Mortimer's Christmas Manager by Karma Wilson and Jane Chapman

  1. Sounds like fun, Julie. Even though my sons are now 13 and 17, we still have our favorite holiday books. We didn't read too many of them last season together, but we would never let Christmas Eve pass without reading The Night Before Christmas, The Christmas Star by Marcus Pfister, and a favorite from my own childhood, Santa Mouse!

    Enjoy!

    P.S. the new Jacob Marley book sounds good too - we always listen to an audio of A Chrostmas Carol on our way back from visiting family for Thanksgiving weekend.
