In the Spirit of Spreading the Christmas Spirit

Well . . . I have never before participated in any sort of reading / book challenges before. Today, that is changing . . . twice!

Yep. I'm participating in two challenges during the month of December. Won't you join me?!
First up, Christmas in July, in December hosted by Wall-to-Wall Books.

The Challenge:
  • Read only (or as many as you can) Christmas books during the month of December.
  • Do at least one Christmasy giveaway during December.
  • Books read during December 1-31, 2011 qualify.
She also posted a list of books that she plans to read during December, so if you need ideas of Christmas books, you might want to check it out.

The Christmas Spirit Reading Challenge

Next, The Christmas Spirit Reading Challenge hosted by the True Book Addict at The Christmas Spirit.

The Challenge:
  • Read Christmas books (novels, craft books, short stories, poems, etc.). Pretty much anything related to Christmas counts!
  • If you want to post reviews or progress updates, there is a linky list available for that.
  • Challenge Levels:
    • Candy Cane: 1 book
    • Mistletoe: 2-4 books
    • Christmas Tree: 5-6 books
    • Fa La La La Films: Christmas movies count for this one! (optional)
    • Visions of Sugar Plums: Books read with your kiddos count for this one. Great idea! (optional)
  • Books read during November 21-January 6 count so stretch the fun out!
These are right up my alley. Not a lot of rules to complicate things. And really low minimum requirements. Plus, I was love reading Christmas books and this will be a little extra motivation to actually do it!

Happy Reading!
