Merry Christmas, Everybody!



What I want to know today is … what are the most “wintery” books you can think of? The ones that almost embody Winter?


My Answer

Merry Christmas. Thanks for the list of books! In the heat of August, I may need some cold reading.

That's quite a healthy list! Happy BTT and Merry Christmas!

Wow! I don't have a list like yours, but I'm thankful for the ideas that you've provided. This year, I read WHITE CHRISTMAS PIE, and the hubby and I are rereading SKIPPING CHRISTMAS.

Merry Christmas, Sally.

Merry Christmas!!
Me either couldn't think one without including Christmas. :)
'Christmas Around the World' sounds interesting, so do 'Then Comes Marriage'. Haven't heard/read them before. Perhaps soon.
Happy Reading..

Thank you for leaving the comment on my blog. Nice to meet you. :) I can't say that I'm much of a Christmas story reader, as I haven't read ANY of the books on your list, and it looks like a pretty comprehensive one at that. Maybe I should remedy that soon? 'Tis the season, after all!

Merry Christmas to you too! :)

Nothing like a good Christmas story to invite the spirit of the season.

Hope you had a wonderful Christmas, Sally!
