@Bhawna I’m afraid I don’t have any… Maybe A Christmas Carol, which sounds too obvious…

Just reading up on this, interesting as i never heard of Krampus
It’s a fantastic book and wonderful tradition as well
My book club chose one called White Christmas Pie just as a very light read for December

A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens
A Christmas Carol

@Amy Thanks for the recommendation. I enjoyed a couple of her other books a few years ago, so I downloaded the audio version for this one. Can’t wait to listen!
@Victoria I really enjoy her stories.
@Amy This one and Coming Home are my favourites. I miss the characters when I’ve finished the books. ?
@Victoria I want her to write more about Elftida and Oscar!
@Amy me too! But I think she has retired. 🙁
A Christmas Story by Jean Shepherd. All of his work was wonderful.
Not sure I have ever read a christmas novel.
Oh that one about the woman who sold her hair to buy her husband something but he sold that to buy her combs for her hair. Short story I think. Maybe The Gift?
O. Henry, The Gift of the Magi. She bought him a watch chain, he sold his watch.
Christmas With the Kranks!
Is that a book?
@Susan Yes, but I’m not positive of the title. Maybe that’s the title of the movie. Sorry.
Don’t apologize, If it’s a book I’d like to read it!
@Susan – its called “Skipping Christmas” by John Grisham. One of my favorites!
@Dawn Thanks. I knew someone would know the name of this book!
A Christmas Carol. . . .still
I found 2 at the book fair recently: Comfort and Joy by Kristen Hannah and Santa Cruise by Mary Higgins Clark. Saving them for Xmas week!
My all-time favorite is Becky’s Christmas by Tasha Tudor. I’ve had my copy since I was a girl.
@Margit I have an autographed copy of Becky’s Birthday. I can’t remember if it was written by her, but I know it was illustrated by her. She came to my college, 50 years ago. I named my daughter, Becky.
@Margit I love that one, too! Wonder why? ☺️
@Margit And Becky’s Birthday—both written and illustrated by Tudor.
@Ann I’m jealous! ?
@Margit I also have a signed copy of The Tasha Tudor Cookbook. It’s lovely.
@Ann great name ?
I haven’t found a favorite adult read yet.
Two Tickets to the Christmas Ball by Donita K. Paul.
This book is charming and romantic with a little magic.
Oh Yes! I thought of this one too! This is SOOO warm and fuzzy and magical!
A Redbird Christmas
Christmas Carol…..I know…I’m boring. Lol
Short, but oh, sooo sweet, A Christmas Memory by Truman Capote. Makes a perfect gift.
Comfort & Joy by Kristin Hannah!
A Redbird Christmas by Fannie Flagg. Nostalgic and a little sappy, but wonderful. A great listen!
I can’t wait to get my hands on all these books! Thank you all! ?
A Prayer For Owen Meany. More particularly, the Nativity Scene as it is pictured by John Irving. Hilarious!
Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens it’s old but a classic
A Christmas Memory by Truman Capote
The Gift of the Magi by O’Henry who is one of my favorite authors.
