12 Days of Christmas for the Bookish People in Your Life

Do you currently have someone in your family that loves all things bookish? Or maybe you are that person, and you need to somehow hint to your loved one what they can get you for Christmas? Let’s face it, non-bookish people just don’t get it. Yes, of course we want books, I mean that is the point, right? But there’s so much more!!

I’ve taken the popular 12 Days of Christmas and put a little bookish spin on it. I think you’ll find something in one or more of the days that you like!

Christmas Books to Read and to Gift

Christmas is almost here! And the chaos and excitement are in full swing in the Dixon household. Half of Christmas dinner is cooked and in the freezer, (check out my post about prepping for Christmas HERE) the house is clean, (well as clean as it can be with 2 young boys) the decor is all up and there is snow on the ground. There is nothing better than curling up in my favorite reading chair next to the Christmas tree, a steaming mug of cider in hand, and a Christmas book to read. Here are a few books to add to your reading list this month. Don’t forget, books also make great gifts, for kids and adults!
