Maybe there isn't enough time to collect 24 books this year, but this could be a wonderful year-round hunt. (Yes, I'm the type to be on the lookout for gifts all year long--on sale, of course.) And as an English major, I'm all for encouraging reading!
Here's the link to the Everyday Cheapskate blog post. And I highly recommend subscribing to her newsletter. It's free.
I loved the idea so much I decided to run a contest. Twenty-four Christmas books, for the entire family.
Just drop an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with COUNTDOWN TO CHRISTMAS CONTEST in the subject line. Body can be blank. I'll contact the winner for addy. Contest ends November 23rd. US only, 18+.
(Yes, these are new books. I'm clearing out my cache of Santa Letter writing stuff, to make room for the new. For this year, Santa and other letters are digital. See An Enchanted Letter for more info, and I'll post here in the coming days.)
In the meantime, you can grab my FREE ebook of classic holiday stories for year-round (includes a few for Christmas), Enchanted Holiday Stories for Children of All Ages, over at my Lulu Storefront. (It's on page 2. There's also a free e-coloring book for holidays year-round.)
