Christmas Reading Challenges!
I have joined my first ever reading challenge(s). Christmas is my absolutely favorite time for reading. It`s the full meal deal. You have the the chill of winter, the warmth of the fire (or furnace), the smell of Christmas baking, and the delight of holiday decorations tastefully spread throughout the room. Or, as the case may be, you find yourself sitting on the couch reading while Christmas decorations are in piles ready to be placed, shopping for baking has yet to be done, lights are piled beside the decorations waiting...... waiting for you to put your book down and hang them! Either way -  it`s a perfect time to inhale the aroma of another book!  Ahhhhh!

Book two, How Mrs. Claus Saved Christmas, has been read and reviewed. Click the following link to go have a look.     

Book three, The Best Christmas Pageant Ever is read and reviewed.

Book four, Dashing Through the Snow = Read and review posted!



Glasses are now required for reading

My children have been well trained to buy me books for Christmas - sometimes I buy them myself, wrap them, and place them under the tree as gifts from my family. We all get a laugh as my children discover what book they bought mom this year. My holiday reading list is as follows and I`ll review each book when I`m done. My first review - The Christmas Cookie Club is done and you can find it posted on my blog as  Fifteenth Post - Cookies   It`s a rather tasty post!

The rest of my list......(I may need to check it twice!)
