Twelve Books of Christmas

This past summer, I challenged myself to read 20 books in 14 weeks. I fell a few books short of my goal but I did manage to knock out 17 books from my bookshelf. I discovered some excellent books and some new authors.

Well, I'm at it again. This time I'm reading 12 books for the holiday season. My 12 Books of Christmas Challenge will start on November 27 and go through December 31. I will review each book on here so check back often.

This is a perfect challenge for me because I LOVE Christmas. It's my favorite holiday and certainly my favorite time of year. Christmas is a big deal for my family and I normally spend the day at home each Christmas (I don't even go to church. Yes, I'm a heathen). It will be the icing on the cake to read 12 books about such a magical time of year. Plus, it just doesn't feel right to read Christmas stories in June.

Here is my tentative list for my 12 Books of Christmas (in no particular order):

1. The Christmas Dog by Melody Carlson
2. The Christmas Sweater by Glenn Beck
3. Engaging Father Christmas by Robin Jones Gunn
4. The Great Christmas Bowl by Susan May Warren
5. The Judge who Stole Christmas by Randy Singer
6. An Irish Christmas by Melody Carlson
7. The Angel of Bastonge by Gilbert Morris
8. A Midnight Clear by Jerry B. Jenkins
9. All I Have to Give by Melody Carlson
10. The Christmas Candle by Max Lucado
11. Where Angels Go by Debbie Macomber

12. The Winter of Candy Canes by Debbie Viguiye

There are a few books that is not on this list but I would like to read it but I can't get a copy of.
I'm going to keep trying to get my hands on copies.

They are:

The Christmas Lamp by Lori Copeland.
A Texas Legacy Christmas by DiAnn Mills
Cowboy Christmas by Mary Connealy

I want to hear from you. What is your favorite Christmas book? I'm sure I'll have a favorite by the end of the year.
