The Christmas Spirit Reading Challenge started yesterday Monday, November 23. I love reading Christmassy stories. Thanks to Michelle at Christmas Spirit and Seasons of Reading for hosting.


  • challenge will run from Monday, November 23, 2020 through January 6, 2021 (Twelfth Night or Epiphany).
  • 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 a children’s Christmas books level!

I’m aiming for the Christmas Tree level, which is 5 or 6 books.

This year, the challenge is running in tandem with the Christmas Spirit Readathon. You don’t have to read only Christmas/holiday books during the readathon, but hopefully you will pick up at least one holiday tale.
