A Holiday Challenge Poll + Giveaway at Sophisticated Dorkines

Does anyone host a “Holiday Favorites” challenge? I haven’t seen any information about any such challenge floating around the blogosphere, but correct me if I’m wrong.

I loved reading everyone’s posts for the R.I.P. challenge and I’d love to read everyone’s “Happy Holidays” book selections. (I didn’t join the R.I.P. challenge because I didn’t think I liked “scary” books; silly me, I loved reading Irving’s, Hawthorne’s, and even Poe’s stories for Halloween this year.)

I would keep the Holiday challenge to just one to three books, running from November 15, 2008 to December 31, 2008.  But maybe I’m crazy: I know the holidays are crazy-busy.

Please let me know what you think by joining in this poll.

  1. Rebecca, I think a holiday challenge is a great idea.  My book club is reading “holiday favorites” for our December meeting, and I would love to have some ideas from the blogosphere.

  2. Kim, Oh good! I love reading about holiday books. I’ll look for your review!

    Jessica, there are so many options out there! Because Book in Hand is already hosting a challenge, I think I’ll be piggy-backing on that, so check out Book in Hand’s post.
