This week’s Favorite is: Christmas Read


My favorite Christmas Read is The Christmas Train by David Baldacci. I read it every year.

About the book – from Goodreads: Disillusioned journalist Tom Langdon must get from Washington D.C. to L.A in time for Christmas. Forced to travel by train, he begins a journey of rude awakenings, thrilling adventures and holiday magic. He has no idea that the locomotives pulling him across America will actually take him into the rugged terrain of his own heart, as he rediscovers people’s essential goodness and someone very special he believed he had lost.

The Christmas Train is filled with memorable characters who have packed their bags with as much wisdom as mischief … and shows how we do get second chances to fulfill our deepest hopes and dreams, especially during this season of miracles.


What is your favorite Christmas read?



  1. I love Christmas books so I’ll have this one on my list. Thanks!

  2. This one sounds good. I added to my to-read list, although I probably won’t get around to it this year.

  3. I didn’t even know David Baldacci wrote a Christmas themed book. I definitely need to read this one. Awesome!
    Thanks for joining and sharing your favorite!

  4. I didn’t know he wrote a Christmas book, either. I’ll have to look for it next fall to read for next year’s Christmas.
