Christmas Spirit Reading Challenge -- Wrap-Up

And so we come to the end of another Christmas reading challenge. My holidays went out with a bang when I was down with what I thought was the flu, but turned out to be a severe sinus infection. I'm still recuperating. It really put a damper on the rest of my holiday reading. What I did end up reading was The Snowman Maker by Barbara Briggs Ward (read my review) and Winter Solstice by Rosamunde Pilcher (great book, very comforting). I watched a million movies, of course. With the Hallmark Channel playing all those Christmas movies, plus the ones I own, it was all Christmas movies, all the time for me. haha!

I hope you enjoyed the challenge again this year. Of course, we will be back next year and I'll be saving your review link ups so I can direct people there for reference on future Christmas reads. If you do, or have done a wrap up, you can leave me the link in the comments.

Now, for the winners of the giveaway.

    Congrats to the winners!
    I'll have a wrap up post up soon

  3. I have been SUPER busy these past three weeks, so I didn't put up a wrap-up post.....I do apologize, Michelle....

    I'm on vacation this week -- YAY!!! So I decided to come over and take a look at what was going on.

    I did read the four books I had planned on reading, and added two more! The trick is to pick short

    Anyway.....CONGRATS TO THE WINNERS!! WOOT, WOOT!!!! : )

    I'll be back for the challenge this year, but will also try to come by during the year to post comments. That's one of my New Year's resolutions, by the way -- to drop by this wonderful blog, and post comments throughout the year!

    A belated Happy New Year, Michelle!! Many blessings for you and your family!!! : ).
