With the holiday season now upon us, how does it affect your reading? Do you have more, or less, time to read at Christmas? Do you read Christmas themed/related books?
The holidays really cut into my reading time. Right now I'm knitting up a storm trying to finish some Christmas gifts for the family. With money tight this Christmas, I thought it would be nice to knit family/friends scarves to keep them warm this winter. Over the past 2 weeks, I've completed 5 and I started on the 6th one today.
Although I am trying to read at least 30 minutes a day, my To Be Read pile is continuing to grow. I'm still receiving ARCs and review copies in the mail and the library is always getting new books (I do book reviews for my local public library for the newspaper every week). To solve my reading dilemnia, I check out several books on tape this weekend and I'm going to try listening to books while I knit. This may help to kill two birds with one stone.
I don't normally read Christmas related books during the holiday - with the exception of The Night Before Christmas and A Christmas Carol, which are classics we read in our home every year. That being said, I have recently read a wonderful new Christmas book - The Santa Letters - and I would recommend it to everyone who loves holiday themed books.
