What is your favorite holiday read?

For me, the holidays are a great time to re-read books like the Harry Potter series, because they have a warm fuzzy place in my heart.  But it’s also a great time to read tales about the holidays.  My personal favorite is The Life and Adventures of Santa Claus by L. Frank Baum.  It follows Claus’ life from the time he was discovered by fairies through his old age when he is eventually bestowed with immortality.  Beautifully written, the story also divides up well into bedtime stories for children. Plus, the Penguin Christmas Classics edition is gorgeous.

Another Christmas book I’m hoping to read this year is J.R.R. Tolkien’s Letters from Father Christmas.  What is on your holiday reading list?

    If you check my GR reviews you will see many children’s books there, which we re-read round this time of year. (No kids in the family. Can’t help that.) “The Book” (aka Wind in the Willows) is definitely our Christmas read, along with many others. But The Book is central to our holiday season.
