2009 Holiday Reading Challenge!

Yesh, it's that time of year again! I can't believe the holiday season is upon me again. Last year at this time I was seven months pregnant with a soon to be eleven pound baby born to me! Not so great memories. But this year, not huge and preggo and have the cutest baby boy to dote on for Christmas! So I'm in the mood and now I just found All About {n} is hosting the 2009 Holiday Reading Challenge, which will run from November 20 to December 31 st!

Here are the details:

1- Challenge will start Friday, November 20 and will end Thursday, 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 here. 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 she will choose one winner from the review links and will allow them to pick a book of their choosing (of course, she will provide a list). Meaning the more books you read, review and link up, the more chances you have at winning a "present".

Well, my list so far that I've chosen are these:

  1. A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens (reread for me)
  2. Secrets of a Christmas Box by Steven Hornby (I won this online from Katrina)
  3. The Christmas Box by Richard Paul Evans
  4. The Christmas Almanack by Gerard & Patricia Del Re (Always a reread!)
I may add more....but this is good for now!
I hope you join in and take in the spirit of the season!


  1. Welcome to the challenge! - Glad to have ya. It seems we have a couple of the same one's on our lists - so I look forward to reading your reviews.

    Happy Reading!

  2. I read A Christmas Carol last year and enjoyed it. My daughter and I are reading Secrets of a Christmas Box right now. It's pretty cute.


Thanks for reading my posts and for letting me know what you think!
