- 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
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.
