I came across an interesting reading challenge for holiday books this week on Nely’s blog.  So I decided to participate. I have a collection of Christmas books acquired from thrift stores and garage sales over the years. This will be fun!

Nely’s Challenge Requirements are as follows:

1. Challenge will start Friday, November 20 and will end Thursday, December 31.

2. You can read anywhere from 1 to 5 books for the challenge and, of course, if you’re like me, you are more than welcome to surpass that number.

3. And now, here’s the clincher…they must be holiday related books. That’s right, the holiday doesn’t really matter, but it would be more “jolly” if your choices were Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, etc.

4. The size of the book does not matter, nor does the genre. It is also okay for the book to overlap with other challenges. The only thing I ask is that they are not children’s books. YA is okay. And so are re-reads. I for one tend to read the same books every Christmas – they are tradition.

5. To sign up – leave a link back to your challenge post. There will also be a post for review links as well as one for challenge wrap-ups.

6. And….there will be goodies. That’s right, we’ll call them presents. At the end of every week that the challenge is running I will choose one winner from the review links and I will allow them to pick a book of their choosing (of course, I will provide a list). Meaning the more books you read, review and link up, the more chances you have a winning a “present”. of course,  etc.

Bountiful Blessings!
