Of course, I am participating in the
2012 Christmas Spirit Reading Challenge!
This challenge is hosted by The True Book Addict at The Christmas Spirit Blog. This is the 4th Year and I'm pretty sure I have participated at least 3 of the 4 years. I love Christmas! If YOU love Christmas - Christmas books, Christmas movies, Christmas cookies - you should go over the The Christmas Spirit Blog and sign up, too. (The challenge doesn't include cookies, but I'll be sure to be nibbling on some while I'm reading or watching movies!)
Here are the details:
The Challenge runs from Monday, November 19, 2012 through Sunday, January 6, 2013 (Twelfth Night or Epiphany).
Crossover with other challenges is permitted and encouraged!
The books must be Christmas novels about Christmas lore, a book of Christmas short stories or poems, books about Christmas crafts, and, for the first time, there is a children's Christmas books level!
Visit The Christmas Spirit Blog to see a list of new Christmas books for 2012.
Here are the reading levels:
Candy Cane - read 1 book
I read "A Chesapeake Shores Christmas" by Sherryl Woods. Find my review here.
Mistletoe - read 2 to 4 books
I read "A Wallflowers Christmas" by Lisa Kleypas. 12/5/12
I read "The Mischief of the Mistletoe" by Lauren Willig 12/30/12. Find my review here.
Christmas Tree - read 5 or 6 books
Additional levels: FaLaLa
Films: watch a bunch or a few Christmas movies
I've watched too many Christmas movies this year! At least one every night since Thanksgiving.
Visions of Sugar Plums: read books with your children and share what you read
The additional levels are optional, but you still must participate in the reading levels.
Check out The Christmas Spirit Blog to sign up and to read about the giveaway!
I'll probably start out at the Mistletoe level and then go to Christmas Tree if I can.
Christmas movies have already started and I have seen at least 3. We watch a Christmas movie or special every night in December at our house.
Did I mention I LOVE Christmas?
