Giveaway

I love Christmas books. I collect them and these two are a wonderful addition to my collection.

Since I loved Finding Father Christmas and Engaging Father Christmas so much, Hatchette Books has offered a set for me to give away.

So, leave me a comment on this post and tell me your favorite Christmas book. Make sure your email is included. Better yet, make sure your email is included in your blogger profile. It makes it so much easier to respond to you when your email is visible. The words "no-reply" are so annoying! ;) Post the giveaway on your blog, let me know, and I'll enter you twice.

I'll choose a winner on Saturday the 25th.

  4. One of my favorite Christmas books is Fannie Flagg's A Redbird Christmas. It was just so sweet and heartwarming (as all of her novels are). I also really enjoyed SHEPHERDS ABIDING: A Mitford Christmas Story by Jan Karon for the same reasons.

  7. My favorite is a children's book. It's THE TALE OF THREE TREES retold by Angela Elwell Hunt and illustrated by Tim Jonke. I am so sad that all of my kids are grown up and don't like me reading it to them.

  13. Well my favourite Christmas book is a very very old "Twas the Night Before Christmas" that has been in our family for a long time. It is put on display every Christmas and read every Christmas Eve. Favourite Christmas story - I do like the Donna VanLiere series and I always read the Christmas mystery by Anne Perry.

  14. Hi Holly,
    Good selection of books to give away. I saw them at another blog and thought"I want them". My favorite Christmas book is Skipping Christmas. Oh, by the way, I tried your mashed potato trick and it cuts the cooking time down dramatically. Excellent. Now I have to re-adjust my timing.

  17. I enjoyed The Christmas Box. It was my first "holiday" themed book and it was surprisingly touching. I also enjoyed Skipping Christmas by John Grisham. It was made into a movie (Christmas with the Kranks) but that wasn't as good, but entertaining.

  18. My favorite Christmas book is Jotham's Journey. It is a book that you read every day during Advent leading up to Christmas. I look forward to reading it with my boy's every year.

    I am going to add your giveaway to my share/giveaway box in my sidebar of my blog.
