Faith 'n Fiction Saturday -

My friend Amy is the host for Faith 'n Fiction Saturday. If you're interested, check it out here.

Today's question is:It's Christmas time and one of my favorite things to do is read Christmas themed books. Do you enjoy reading holiday themed books? Do you have any special book you read every year? Do you have a special devotional you like to use? (not fiction..I know!) Have you read any good Christmas books this year?


My Answer:
As a habit, I haven't read Christmas themed books. However, this year, I've read a slew of them--thrillers, romances, and humorous books. I liked this change. So my habit for future Christmas seasons will find me reading books with a Christmas themes. I review everything I read, so anyone interested can check out the wonderful reads I've enjoyed. Two goodies are Engaging Father Christmas and One Perfect Day. To help children focus on WHY we celebrate Christmas, try Cole Family Christmas. What a GREAT book that is for children 9-12!

Most definitely, each Christmas Eve, my family gets together. Food is always involved, we play Christmas music and sing along, and as we gather around the tree, my husband reads Luke 2, the original Christmas story. What a nice family tradition that is; I recommend it.

If my pile of TBR books was smaller, I'd add these books. Sigh
