Jingle All the Way

Christmas decorations at the mall.

How can it already be December 1st? I swear Halloween and Thanksgiving were just yesterday. On the other hand, the stores have been selling Christmas trees and decorations for months now.

Like most everyone else, I have already started Christmas shopping. I think my grandkids already have every toy and game imaginable. So what are they getting for Christmas from me? Hmm! Well, books, puzzles and clothes are on my shopping list.

Yes, that's change jingling in my pocket, because that's just about all I have left to spend. When did everything get so expensive?

My husband asked me the other day what I want for Christmas? Books, of course. Always books. So an Amazon gift card will be just fine for me. The list of books I want to buy is already way too long, but maybe I'll get a really big gift card? Well, I can always hope.

In the meantime, I'm not waiting until Christmas to get some of the books I want. I almost always find something to add to my Kindles (my old Kindle Keyboard and my newer Kindle Fire). I love Christmas reads this time of year. So I'm figuring you all love Christmas reads too.

So here's a list of Christmas romances, historicals, mysteries, comedies and such. The ones marked with an (*) are on my Kindles. The rest are books that I think we'd all enjoy. All of these books are available in eBook format.

  1. Teri, Love your Christmas book list. Shopping in general gives me nightmares--I prefer to give books. They're easy to wrap too. Or send by email, my favorite way.
    Meanwhile, would you contact me at ellis at ellisvidler dot com?

    1. Ellis, thanks for the nice comment. I enjoyed putting togethering the Christmas book list. So many fun holiday reads out there. I'm always giving books for Christmas presents and birthdays too, though my daughter prefers an Amazon gift card for Kindle books. I'm hoping that Santa remembers to get me an Amazon gift card too.


I love hearing from my readers.
