2010 Christimas Spirit Reading Challenge – Incomplete


Christmas Spirit Challenge

When: 26 November 2010 – 6 January 2011
Who: Michelle (The True Book Addict)
Rules: Read Christmas-themed books. Copied directly from the Challenge blog:

  • challenge will run from Friday, November 26, 2010 (Black Friday) through January 6, 2010 (Twelfth Night or Epiphany).
  • cross overs with other challenges is totally permitted AND encouraged!
  • These must be Christmas novels, books about Christmas lore or a book of Christmas short stories (sorry, no children’s books, but YA novels are okay).

Michelle has established three reading levels:

  • Candy Cane: read 1 book
  • Mistletoe: read 2-4 books
  • Christmas Tree: read 5 or 6 books

The first on-line reading challenge I ever participated in was holiday-themed, so I have special fondness for them.

  • Regency Christmas Proposals (2010) — Gayle Wilson, Amanda McCabe, Carole Mortimer
  • A Regency Christmas (2009) — Lyn stone, Carla Kelly, Gail Ranstrom
  • One Candlelit Christmas (2008) — Julia Justiss, Annie Burrows, Terri Brisbin
  • TBA
  • TBA


So, how is it possible that one holiday-themed challenge was a success and the other was an incomplete — especially when they had the same reading list and ran almost concurrently?

Well, it was the “almost” part that tripped me up. You see, I started the only book I read for the two challenges before the start date of this challenge.  So, there you have it.
