    Anyone have favorite books with a Christmas theme? I love Debbie Macomber's annual Christmas books - Dashing Through the Snow, Mr. Miracle, Trading Christmas, and Starry Night are a few I have - Finding Father Christmas and Engaging Father Christmas by Robin Jones Gunn, and Maeve Binchy's This Year It Will Be Different. One of the first years I joined MHH, we read a book and had a discussion - I think it was Sheila Roberts' The Snow Globe. Just had a quick look on Amazon and Sheila Roberts has a lot of Christmas titles.

    I love any book with a Christmas theme but particularly like any of Miss Read's Christmas stories - Village Christmas, The Christmas Mouse and No Holly for Miss Quinn

    I love Debbies books but I also read a variety and love all Christmas stories. Checked one out tonight by Fern Michaels.

    I also love any books with a Christmas theme, but especially love Debbie's, Sheila Roberts' books and Melody Carlson has several Christmas books I've enjoyed over the years. Also books by Donna VanLiere and many of the Amish Christmas stories.

    OHH such good titles on here. It is cold here at the moment so would enjoy snuggling in with a good book.

    I know this won't sound like it would be a "Christmas" read but The Wolves of Midwinter by Anne Rice is actually chock FULL of lovely Christmas imagery, a huge old house by the sea decorated to the gills, a Christmas fair, a Christmas gala and at the very end of the book one of the most touching speeches by a priest that I've ever read - brings me to tears every time!

    Yes, the book is about werewolves - but it's one of my favorite things to read to get in the holiday mood!

    Another favorite is a collection of short stores by Louisa May Alcott called The Christmas Treasury

    And I have to mention Skipping Christmas by John Grisham! :)

    Thanks for posting these Christmas books suggestions. I want to start looking for Christmas books at the library soon before half the town takes them out. ;)

    Time to start looking for new Christmas titles. I have ordered one from the library called Snowflakes and Cinnamon Swirls. Need to pick it up.

    Thanks...what a great list. I listen to my books, so my choices can be limited at the library, but I'll see what they have.

    I still think back to reading "Skipping Christmas" for the first time and it amuses me how much I laughed out loud. I LOVED that book!

    I have discovered a series of Christmas books from the author Janet Dailey.
    It is a series set in a town called Branding Iron, Texas and tell the story of the residents of the town. It is a series but each book does stand alone. Have a look for them.
