I usually don’t tend to get into the holiday spirit until after my bday in December. I cringe when I walk into the malls or stores and the Christmas music is already playing, the displays and advertising is happening a little too soon for me. I am not sure what its like in other places but I noticed that the day after Halloween it was Christmas mode.
The 2009 Holiday Reading Challenge is being hosted by Nely. To find out more about it or to take part all you have to do is head over to her blog to get all the details. Just follow this link here.
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.
