2010 Holiday reading challenge


It's been awhile since  did a reading challenge, but I do enjoy them. And I love me some holiday stories. So, I'm joining in with Nely of All About {n} for the 2010 Holiday Reading Challenge.

Challenge Requirements:
1- Challenge will start Monday, November 15 and will end Friday, December 31.
2- You can read anywhere from 1 to 5 books for the challenge and, of course, if you're like me, you are more than welcome to surpass that number.
3- And now, here's the clincher... they must be holiday related books. That's right, the holiday doesn't really matter, but it would be more "jolly" if your choices were Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, etc.

4- The size of the book does not matter, nor does the genre. It is also okay for the book to overlap with other challenges. The only thing I ask is that they are not children's books. YA is okay. And so are re-reads. I for one tend to read the same books every Christmas - they are tradition.
5- To sign up - leave a link back to your challenge post. There will also be a post for review links as well as one for challenge wrap-ups.
6- And.... there will be goodies. That's right, we'll call them presents. At the end of every week that the challenge is running I will choose one winner from the review links. Meaning the more books you read, review and link up, the more chances you have at winning a "present".
Here is my list of books (subject to change):

  4. I loved the Christmas Cookie Club, and I don't even cook. There's one for Cheeseburger Cookies that I just might take on this year. And I'm (slowly) reworking A Christmas Carol for my Nanowrimo, so it was nice to see someone else is already getting into the spirit.

  5. I'm going to read A Christmas Carol too. It's one of my favourite Christmas stories. I read Mrs Miracle a few years ago and thought it was very sweet.
