Welcome to The 2013 Christmas
Spirit Reading Challenge,
hosted by Michelle, @
The Christmas Spirit blog!!
Every year at this time, Michelle hosts this wonderful reading challenge,
which gives every Christmas addict
(and I count myself among those)
an opportunity to indulge in
the pleasant pastime of reading
Christmas books exclusively during
this beautiful, joyful, and sacred season!
This is the fifth year of the challenge,
and I sure hope there will be
many more to come!
Here are the rules:
1.) The challenge will run from Friday,
Nov. 22, 2013, through
Sunday, January 6, 2014.
(This is Twelfth Night, or Epiphany.)
2.) Crossover with other challenges
is totally permitted AND
3.) These must be Christmas novels,
books about Christmas lore,
books of Christmas short stories or poems,
books about Christmas crafts,
and, for the first time....
there's a children's Christmas books level!
Here are the levels:
1.) Candy cane: read 1 book
2.) Mistletoe: read 2 - 4 books
3.) Christmas Tree: read 5 or 6 books
(This is the fanatic level....LOL.)
Fa La La La Films: watch a bunch of or a few
Christmas movies....it's up to you!
Visions of Sugar Plums: read books with
your children this season, and share
what you read.
The additional levels are optional.
You must still complete one
of the main reading levels above.
Michelle posted a review Linky
as a page the day the challenge started.
You will find it at the top
of the left sidebar on her blog.
She will also be doing a giveaway!
Please visit her blog for more details,
as well as to add your blog's name
and URL to the signup Linky!!
(Maybe Christmas Tree Level?)
These are the books I will attempt
to read this year:
(Click on each image to access the
Goodreads page for each book.)
This is actually three books in one:
Angels in the Snow, and
If I finish the three books above,
and still have time,
I'll be reading this nice time-travel fantasy!!
I sure hope I'll be able to get to this one!
I'd like to encourage you all to join this
great reading challenge!
It's certainly a great holiday tradition
for me by now,
and I'm hoping it will become one
for you guys, too!!
And last but definitely not least.....
