Looking for a good book to read? I always read a ton during the holidays, and this Christmas is no different. This is part of my personal Christmas reading list:
.
On my bookshelf...
  1. Brideshead Revisited by Evelyn Waugh
  2. Past, Perfect, and Present Tense by Richard Peck
  3. Domino Book of Decorating
  4. Ottoline and the Yellow Cat by Chris Riddell
  5. So Brave, Young, and Handsome by Leif Enger
  6. The Mysterious Benedict Society by Trenton Lee Stewart (just finished, really interesting read)

These are some of my must-read Christmas stories:

  1. Olivia Helps with Christmas by Ian Falconer
  2. The Polar Express by Chris VanAllsburg
  3. The Jolly Postman Christmas by Allan and Janet Ahlburg
  4. Toot and Puddle: I'll Be Home for Christmas by Holly Hobbie
  5. Olive, the Other Reindeer by Vivian Walsh

What do you like to read for the holidays? Tomorrow's Christmas Eve! I can't believe it, I am soooo excited! Be back tomorrow with another post!

I love your reading list! I have several of them already on my bookshelf. Ha! I LOVE Toot and Puddle! If you like Ottoline and the Yelow Cat, you might also like a new book called, "Madame Pamplemousse and her Incredible Edibles," by Rupert Kingfisher. And a Hollie Hobbie book, "Fanny." I'm on a mission to build the wee one a nice library. Ha! Hope you had a beautiful holiday!
