I was just mentioning over at Hamlette's blog how only this morning I was reminded of the couple of books I had planned to read during the Christmas season. I thought it would be nice if there was some challenge around... not that I need a challenge to read them, but to be a part of a group that is specifically doing some Christmassy reading.
So, I've decided I am in with the following:
1. This is a little treasure I picked up for a song at a little bookstore over a year ago. It is a collection of three christmas stories by Louisa May Alcott -- a "newly discovered literary treasure". It's a tiny book, no more than 122 pages long.
2. A good friend of my leant me this book earlier this month. He picked it up believing this was the sort of thing that was bound to capture my interest. And he is right! It is a family advent reader, and I am so looking forward to it.
3. I only just discovered this at the blog of the hostess. She has this in her reading list, and I thought it sounded very interesting. It looks to be a short read as well -- about 160 pages. I would like to be able to finish this one as well.
Are any of these titles familiar to you? Have you anything planned solely for Christmas?
