Well, here it is, the end of the Christmas Spirit Readathon! I'm sorry to say that there were times when I could have been reading that I just didn't want to do anything. That's sad, but true. I still enjoyed participating. I made progress on "The Angel's Game" by Carlos Ruiz Zafon. That was fun because my son was in Barcelona while I was reading it. Also, I read two books by Melody Carlson - "The Christmas Shoppe" and "The Christmas Angel Project." I love Melody Carlson Christmas novels. They are really about Christmas - not some murder that happened or some mystery that had to be solved. They are about Christmas and they make your heart swell and sometimes they even make you cry Christmas tears. Love her.
So, that's my wrap-up. I'm planning to read more Christmas/Winter books and watch my favorite Christmas movies and television shows from now until January. My husband and I found a series of videos of old Andy Williams Christmas Specials on You Tube. We plan to investigate that this season as well. And I hear there's an I Love Lucy Christmas Special to air soon. Hope you all have fun doing Christmas things this holiday season!

I am participating in the Christmas Spirit Readathon which runs from Monday, November 21 at 12 a.m. CST to Sunday, November 27 at 11:59 p.m. CST (adjust for your time zone).
This readathon kicks off the Christmas season at Seasons of Reading and you can sign up here. You do not have to read only Christmas/holiday books, but you do need to read at least one. You do not have to have a blog to participate. You can check in on Twitter with the hashtag #CSReadathon, you can link up on Goodreads, Facebook, etc. AND interact with us in our Facebook group.
In addition, the Christmas Spirit Reading Challenge runs all season long - from November 21 through January 6, 2017. You can find out all about it and sign up for that at the Christmas Spirit blog. I do this Reading Challenge every year. It includes books, children's books, movies, etc. Everything Christmas! Go on over and check it out!
