Do you read a book every christmas?

December 10, 2008 9:58am CST
Every Christmas since I got it I have read The Hogfather by Terry Pratchett. I haven't missed a year and always start it early enough so it's finished before Christmas. I don't know why I read it, it just seems like the right book to read at this time of year. Some years I read A Christmas Carol by Dickens but only if I have the time. Do you read anything every year or is it just the next book in the pile?

I always read 'A' book at Christmas but not the same one. I think that is a neat idea. I try to choose something with a holiday theme. One year I read A Christmas Carol by Dickens and that was fun.

A Christmas Carol is a great one to read at this time as it focuses on what is important, not just at christmas but all year round. It only started when I got The Hogfather as I always got a lot of books because everbody knows I'm a reader and I would just read those ones.

i don't usually plan what i read, sometimes i based what i read when i browsed on the internet and read some book reviews that are good or when a friend recommended it. but, this christmas, i'm planning to buy myself a book. i don't know what book yet, maybe i'll take a good luck around bookstores

I never usually plan what I read, it's what on my list or what a friend gives me that I usually read next but I just have to read the hogfather every christmas. Even if I'm in the middle of another book I'll stop and read it.
