I love the prospect of the Christmas holidays, a roaring fire and lots of books to read. There are new books to read and old favourites to re-read. The Christmas holidays are one of the few periods of the year when there is time to just sit and read.
The festive season is a great time for books and over the years I have read and collected many favourite authors and books. Every year I read Nicholas Nickleby. I don't always read all of it, but every year I read some of it. I love Dickens at Christmas. He is the epitome of the Christmas spirit, although strangely I'm not mad keen on A Christmas Carol.
