I thought it would be fun for the next three months, to take a look at some of the charming Christmas books that always pop up this time of year! So, on the 25th of each month until Christmas, I’ll post reviews of a Christmas-y nature!
I even fixed a snazzy little button if you want to grab it for your blog, to remember to come back and visit me on the 25th of each month. And what would Christmas be without a Countdown Clock to raise our blood pressures just a little. (grin!)
