This week’s question:

Have you ever asked co-workers to give you a book or B&N gift card if they got your name for a Secret Santa gift exchange? If so, did you get whet you asked for? (submitted by Maria @ A Night’s Dream of Books)

 

I have when we include a list of gift suggestions. And yes, I have received a book and/or a Barnes & Noble gift card. Always a great gift!

 

What about you?

Making the kids wait at the top of the stairs until Mom or Dad confirms that Santa has shown up, then watching them open their presents. So much magic and joy!

What a week! Besides the kids’ school and activities, blogging and editing kept me busy. We finally finished decorating. YAY!! The kids are thrilled, and the house looks great. Heather, Jaclyn, and I went out to dinner for our EFC Christmas dinner. We had a fabulous time. We’re hoping to get together more often next year. That evening we had a lot of snow. School was canceled the next day. The kids loved their first snow day of the year! Anyway, I’m hoping to finish Christmas shopping today . . . or at least in the next few days. Can you believe Christmas is next week???

Which book(s) would you like Santa to bring you this year? (submitted by Maria @ A Night’s Dream of Books)

This week’s question: 

If you celebrate Christmas, do you feel the need to stop reading anything but Christmas-themed romances as the holiday season starts? (submitted by Maria @ A Night’s Dream of Books)

 

I don’t feel like I must stop reading all other genres. I usually don’t, but I definitely read Christmas-themed books during the holiday season.

 

Do you feel the need to reading all other genres during the holiday season?

This week’s Favorite is: Christmas Read

 

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

 

The Christmas Train
written by David Baldacci
published by Grand Central Publishing

find it here: (affiliate links) Barnes & Noble, Amazon, iBooks, Book Depository, Goodreads

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?

It’s December! Can you believe it? I’m looking forward to Christmas! I just have to start shopping and decorating. Have you started decorating? Are you finished? I’m hoping to get it done this week. I did start reading some holiday books, which are always fun to read each year! I’ve finished The Naughty List by Michael Fry and Bradley Jackson (a book for my son that I wanted to check out first), and I’m almost done (hopefully will be done by the time this post goes live) with A Boy Called Christmas by Matt Haig.
