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
