A Giant List of Christmas Favorites

A Giant List of Christmas Favorites

I love gathering information into neat little piles. It sometimes surprises people to learn that as arty and right-brained as I am, I enjoy spreadsheets and lists and charts, but it’s true: I make sense of ideas by sorting and labeling them.

I have reached the point with this blog now where I have reviewed so many Christmas books over the years that I find they need their own pile. Today’s post is my attempt to do that: here, for the first time ever, is a complete list of all the Christmas books I’ve reviewed since starting this blog in 2013 (plus a few extras I haven’t reviewed yet!).

Merry Christmas to you all, and happy Advent reading.
