Banner The Christmas Spirit Reading ChallengeBut that doesn’t mean we can’t enjoy and share Christmas spirit all year long 🙂

The Christmas Spirit Reading Challenge 2011 was hosted by Michelle/The True Book Addict and ran from November 21st through January 6th.

Unfortunately, I’m still reading one of the books I picked up for this challenge; it’s proving a trickier read than I expected.

I did reach my goal for both the book and movie levels,  Mistletoe and also Fa La La La Films, respectively.

My Book List
A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens – Read but did not review. It’s seems odd to “review” a story that’s been around as long as this one.
A Vampire Christmas Carol by Sarah Gray – Still reading. [Edited 1/10/12: Read and reviewed.]
All Through the Night by Mary Higgins Clark – Read and reviewed.

My Movie List
It’s a Wonderful Life (1946)
A Christmas Carol (1951)
Rudolph, the Red-Nosed Reindeer (1964)
How the Grinch Stole Christmas (1966)
Frosty the Snowman (1969)
One Magic Christmas (1985)
Christmas Vacation (1989)
Elf (2003)

Thanks, Michelle, for such a fun challenge!

So glad you enjoyed the challenge! Yeah, reviewing A Christmas Carol would seem kind of redundant, wouldn’t it. 🙂 I hope you will join me again for the challenge this year.

Also, I’m hosting my Winter read-a-thon in two weeks. You can see the details here: I hope you will consider signing up.

Happy New Year!
