Last year I read three Christmas Themed Books.
First time in all my years that I read Charles Dickens: A Christmas Carol. I've seen it on TV enough, I know the story by heart, but it was a joy to read. I read a Richard Paul Evans book every Christmas, I've been doing that for 3 years now, I discovered him in 2006.
This year I will read The Christmas List by Richard Paul Evans, if I can get my hands on a copy.
I was not too thrilled with last years Christmas book from Richard Paul Evans: Grace. I thought it was dark and not at all a 'FEEL GOOD' Christmas read.
But I forgave him since he introduced me to another book entitled The Christmas Sweater by Glenn Beck. Yes that's right, That Glenn Beck. I didn't know what to expect, but this book was so sweet, touching and I loved it. I don't think he can repeat a story with such emotion. This was based on his childhood, and I was impressed. So if you haven't read it, don't let the name throw you, go ahead, it is great.
This is another book I have in my library queue, although it also has not gotten into circulation yet, well it will be released on October 1, 2009, so I hope by December 2009, the library will have it.
A beautiful patchwork of four novellas about love and joy at Christmastime by best selling author Catherine Palmer. These four novellas were previously published in four anthologies—A Victorian Christmas Quilt, A Victorian Christmas Tea, A Victorian Christmas Cottage, and A Victorian Christmas Keepsake. Return to a time when life was uncomplicated, faith was sincere … and love was a gift to be cherished forever. Includes author’s favorite holiday recipes.
With all the other anthologies, I can keep busy with them until this is released.
