On Writer Wednesday, I discuss another author and his or her book. Today I’m discussing not just one book, but choosing to share with you all of the Christmas-themed books that I have read this December.
Christmas with the Colburns by Keely Brooke Keith
This is a book that I’ve written about on a previous Writer Wednesday and you can read about it here.
The Romance of a Christmas Card by Kate Douglas Wiggin
This was a book on Project Gutenberg (a free resource of older books) and it tells the charming tale of a minister’s wife, her gift for art and the ability of a Christmas card to bridge the gap between past and present and across the miles.
The Adventure of the Christmas Pudding by Agatha Christie
This book told the story of the Adventure of the Christmas Pudding, as well as several other mysteries of Hercule Poirot and Miss Marple. My favorite was the title’s tale.
Skipping Christmas by John Grisham
This was the first book of John Grisham’s that I read. I wasn’t sure what to expect, but it ended up being interesting and told the story of getting past the commercialism to get to the heart of Christmas and then what happens when you really get to the heart and re-embrace some of those festivities.
On This Holy Night
by Max Lucado, Rick Warren, David Jeremiah, John Maxwell, Jack Hayford, and Bill Hybels
This was one of the books featured in my top ten reads of the year and you can read more about it here.
Visions of Sugar Plums by Janet Evanovich
This was my first Stephanie Plum mystery. It’s hard to describe this book, but a few key words would be- wacky family adventures, supernatural happenings, crime fighting and Christmas. It was short, different and fun.
And currently, I’m reading…
White Christmas and Other Merry Christmas Plays by Walter Ben Hare
This is another find from Project Gutenberg. It’s Christmas plays written in charming Edwardian poetry.
What books have you read for Christmas or the holidays this year? What are some of your favorite Christmas reads?
One of my absolute favorites to read, that I’ve read several years is The Autobiography of Santa Claus by Jeff Guinn.
My best to you all,
