    Debbie Macomber - Where angels go
    Susan Wiggs - Snowfall at Willow Lake
    Kyle Smith - Christmas Caroline
    Scarlett Bailey - The Night before Christmas

    And I've ordered

    I love to read. I have no one but me now so I will try to find those. I hope my library has them. Are you watching the Hallmark channel specials? My husband passed of cancer in March so I am trying not to dwell on that. I love to read about Christmas. There are some books about Amish Christmas too.

    Sorry about your Husband Starmoondancer x

    Work is very busy for me over Christmas so a nice light Christmas novel is perfect, I usually get them from the library too so if they aren't very good nothing is lost. I'm enjoying the Christmas films too, I'm limiting myself to watching two a day lol.

    I like Christmas books also but I'm really enjoying the books by Marie Bostwick. She has a quilting series that I like as much or better than the Elm Creek ones (I am not going to try and spell Jennifer's last name!). The first Bostwick book is called "A Single Thread" and she has four in the series so far.
    As I have grown older, I've learned that pleasing everyone is impossible, but pissing everyone off is a piece of cake.

    Great selections on the books! And, I'm another one who is eating up all the Hallmark movies - nothing better on a weekend afternoon (especially if it's dreary outside) than doing some sewing and watching happy holiday movies!!

    Me too. Love Christmas books and the sappy Christmas movies on TV. I've been watching as many as I can for the last week.

    Thank you ever so much, I look forward to reading them. I've read both the Jennifer Chiaverini recently, but the others are new to me. Happy Christmas to you too xxx

    I saw the Amish ones, but wouldn't have considered then unless you mentioned them so thank you both x

    I've been taping the films everyday, but haven't had chance to watch any for a few days, think I will have to send hubby down his workshop and have a nice Christmas movie afternoon :0)

    Can anyone post some of the Amish Christmas book titles or authors? Thanks! Also, in addition to the books that have already been mentioned, Thomas Kinkade has a Christmas book series. There is a new one just out in Nov. Can't remember the title but you can search by author to find them. They are always very nice.
