Recommended Christmas reading

The past few weeks I have been getting ready for the holiday season by reading a lot of Christmas stories. Some were manditory like Charles Dickens' classic A Christmas Carol

others caught my eye because of their original take on the theme like Lemony Snicket's The Latke who Couldn't Stop Screaming

and then there was the unconventional yet incredibly beautiful Auggie Wren's Christmas Story by Paul Auster

Other festive favorites include Twas the Night Before Christmas by Clement C. Moore

and of course Dr. Seuss' How the Grinch Stole Christmas!

If you prefer a more novel approach to the classic Christmas story, be sure to check out

The Christmas Box by Richard Paul Evans

Skipping Christmas by John Grisham

The Adventure of the Christmas Pudding by Agatha Christie

Letters from Father Christmas by J.R.R. Tolkien

Happy reading!
