Christmas Reading Challenge

One last challenge for 2015.  The Christmas Challenge at Reading Every Season.  I want to read some Christmas-themed books and will try to get at least five books for this one.

I am really excited to announce the 2015 Christmas Reading Challenge! I have been looking forward to this reading challenge ever since I started the blog.

This reading challenge will take place in the month of December. I will be also be hosting a Christmas themed readathon called
Xmasathon which will run Dec 1 - 7 that will kick off the Christmas Reading Challenge.

I am also hosting a seasonal 
Winter Reading Challenge which runs Dec - Feb.How the Christmas Reading Challenge Works:

  • This is a design it yourself challenge. I want you to choose your own reading goals. This is a low pressure challenge meant to be fun.
  • The books can be any genre but must be holiday themed. While the name of the challenge is Christmas, books about other winter holidays will count. This includes Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, and Winter Solstice.
  • When you have reviewed a book, you are encouraged to come back to this post and add the link to your review in the comments.
Additional Rules: 

  • This challenge runs Dec 1 - Dec 31.
  • You may sign up anytime during the challenge. 
  • I won't be creating different levels. Read as little or as many books as you want. 
  • You may include books of any format including traditional books, ebooks, or audiobooks.
  • You may reread books. 
  • The sign up page for the Xmasathon Christmas readathon is here
  • Use the hashtag #ChristmasRES
