Christmas Spirit Reading Challenge

In case you couldn’t tell from my last couple of posts, I’m already in the mood for Christmas reading, so of course I’m joining the Christmas Spirit Reading Challenge that starts Monday. It’s hosted by Michelle at Christmas Spirit.

From Christmas Spirit:

Challenge will run from Monday, November 20, 2017 through Saturday, January 6, 2018, Twelfth Night (or Epiphany for the Christians among us).

Cross over with other challenges is totally permitted AND encouraged!

These must be Christmas novels, books about Christmas lore, a book of Christmas short stories or poems, books about Christmas crafts, and for the first time…a children’s Christmas books level!

I’m signing up for the Christmas Tree level which is 5 or 6 books.

Christmas Readathon

And, since it lines up so well, I’m also joining Michelle’s Christmas Spirit Readathon hosted at Seasons of Reading, which also starts Monday.

From Seasons of Reading:

Read-a-Thon dates: Monday, November 20 at 12:00am CDT until Sunday, December 3 at 11:59pm CDT (adjust your time zone accordingly…there’s a time zone converter in the blog menu)

You do not have to be signed up for the Christmas Spirit Reading Challenge to participate (but I sure would love for you to join us!)

I am not requiring that you read only Christmas/holiday books during the read-a-thon, but I hope you will pick up at least one holiday tale, even if it’s just to read some children’s books with your kids or some holiday short stories…and perhaps some scary fare…

To check in on social media, we’ll use hashtag #CSreadathon

As usual, you do not have to have a blog to participate…feel free to link up and check in from Goodreads, Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Instagram, etc. AND interact with us in our Facebook group.

Christmas Spirit Reading Lists:

First I need to finish:

Murder for Christmas by Francis Duncan
Twelve Slays of Christmas by Frost, Jacqueline Frost

Then I’ll start with this list, but who know what I’ll actually end up reading:

The Turn of the Screw by Henry James (scary, but it’s also a story told around the fire on Christmas Eve)
Slay Bells Ring by Karen Rose Smith
Christmastime Cowboy by Maisey Yates
I’m Scheming of a White Christmas by Kate O’Keeffe
A Christmas Peril by J. A. Hennrikus
