2010 Holiday Reading Challenge

I love Christmas and obviously I love reading, so this challenge hosted by All About {n} is perfect for me. Here are the details from Nely:

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.

Oh, and there will be weekly prizes!

If you'd like to join me in this challenge, head on over to All About {n} and sign up!

Here is a list of the books I would like to read. I'm aiming for one a week, but
I'll try to read more if I can.
  1. The Stupidest Angel by Christopher Moore
  2. A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens
  3. The Christmas Mystery by Jostein Gaarder
  4. Christmas at the Mysterious Bookshop by Otto Penzler (ed.)
  5. Winter Solstice by Rosamunde Pilcher
  6. The Burglar and the Blizzard by Alice Duer Miller

Thanks for joining the challenge Hilde. I read A Christmas Carol every year for the holidays. I look forward to your reviews.

I read the Stupidest Angel last year. It's entertaining. A very different type of holiday tale.

Charlie, I just read your review of The Stupidest Angel on your blog. Sounds like a fun and quick read. I haven't read anything by Christopher Moore before, so I'm looking forward to it.
