This month I’m going to challenge you to read books that contain something you want for Christmas. The book could have an iPod you want or a washer/dryer (I think that’s what David Gandy said he wanted for Christmas) or if you’re like me, your list might be just a bunch of books with hot guys in them (or tattoos since I want another one even though I got 3 this year).

Read 1 book or read 10, the amount is up to you. There are no levels and you don’t have to restrict yourselves to items. Want a trip to Ireland for Christmas? Read a book that’s set there. Want world peace for Christmas? Read a book that portrays that. Have fun, be creative and enjoy what you read!

Merry Christmas/Happy Holidays/Happy Reading!

Rebecca | 102 comments I'm in. I'd like some cuddle time with my husband so I think I'll read a romance novel!

I picked my book. It's The Boy Next Door (Boy, #1) by Meg Cabot just started it and it seems very good so far.
I just finished my book. Very good, written in a very different style, it's all e-mails. I really enjoyed it!

(I read 15 books this month, and may finish another tonight, but they weren't all on my tbr for over a year ...)
