Why Christmas Books Make Great Gifts

It’s that time of year again. You’re making your lists and checking them thrice. You’re wondering what to buy for your kids, your parents, your significant other, friends, neighbors, coworkers, and whoever gets your white elephant gift (and you’d like to hear some “ooh”s and “ahhh”s when it gets unwrapped).
You’ve thought about buying books, and here are a few good reasons to think about it seriously:
  1. Inexpensive.
    Most Christmas books cost between $8 and $18. That fits most gift budgets, and it’s difficult to find a classier gift for under $25.
    If you want really cheap gifts for lots of people you aren’t that close to, you can find several relatively good Christmas books for under $5. Consider Gone but not Forgotten on this site, for example – you can get a free copy, and additional copies for just $2 each, and it’s a very popular book with tons of great reader comments on Amazon.
  2. Unique.
    Are you shopping for someone who seems to already have everything he or she needs? With new Christmas books coming out every year, you can be assured that the recipient probably doesn’t have them all yet.
  3. Enjoyable.
    Okay, we admit that many Christmas books turn out a bit simplistic and cheesy, but even then their touching, inspiring message can be difficult to resist.
    So what about the well-written books? You get to not only enjoy a good story, but the multi-layered holiday message adds an extra bit of sweetness.
  4. Make the world a better place.
    The thing that makes the holidays so nice is that everyone’s on board with feeling warm feelings to all mankind, and especially as the outdoor temperatures drop, all those warm feelings and bright, colorful lights can’t help but make you more charitable, forgiving, grateful, giving, and other Christmas values, regardless of your personal views on religion. Christmas books help readers access this Christmas spirit better than ever.
  5. Perfect winter activity.
    Yes, yes, getting all dressed up and going outside for a fun snowball fight or building snow figures in the yard, going skiing or sledding or tubing, and other winter pursuits are terrific fun, but with winter’s short days and cold temps, you can’t spend all day outside. So grab a good book and curl up by the fire with a warm blanket and cup of hot cocoa. It’s a sure way to turn Christmas into the most wonderful time of the year, just like the carol says.
  6. Reading: the Forgotten Pleasure
    With modern life’s constant hustle and bustle, many people have forgotten how much they once loved to read. Or if they haven’t forgotten, they forget to make time for it. With a Christmas book in hand, it’s natural to sit down and read a chapter or two and rediscover the way reading turns the brain on in such pleasurable ways.
  7. Quick reads
    Most Christmas books are relatively short, making them perfect for reading in just a few sittings. The best ones, of course, won’t let the reader put them down, so they go even faster.

So there’s our list. It’s true, isn’t it?! Now you know what to buy for your Christmas list this year! After all, “friends don’t let friends gift fruitcake.” :)

Courage, Love and the Meaning of Christmas revised

We recently completed a very minor revision of Courage, Love and the Meaning of Christmas and submitted the changes to the printer.

We corrected a dozen minor typos and added a page and a half to tie up a tiny loose end that we hope no one noticed in the first place!

If you previously ordered a copy and would like us to email you the addition, please request it from the author using the contact form at http://christmasnovels.com/christmas-writing/about-the-author/

All orders through Amazon or directly from the printer will receive this updated version (identifiable by the 2010 copyright inside the front cover).

While the changes are implemented, the book may be unavailable directly from the printer until approximately April 3, 2010.

Courage, Love and the Meaning of Christmas first 3 chapters

These first three chapters of the new book Courage, Love and the Meaning of Christmas give you a small idea of what to expect from this outstanding novel: snappy dialogue, description and action that pops right off the page; deep life-changing insights, strong, interesting, entertaining characters; and plenty of romance.

Rather than read them here at ChristmasNovels.com, we invite you to view the actual pages visible via Amazon.com‘s “Click to Look Inside” feature. Click to go there now

Note: Amazon cuts off the last few lines of the chapter, which finishes like this:

“If it wasn’t finals,” Lauren said with a very slight smile, “you might be funny.” With that, she piled her books back into her pack, slung it over one shoulder, and left the room.
After a minute of quiet and just as I began to read again, Ski broke the silence. “I can’t believe you let her get away,” he said, shaking his head. “She’s smart. She’s a keeper.”

Book 3 named

The title for the final book in the Courage, Love & the Meaning of Christmas series has been finalized as A Fall from Heaven.

Book three will tie up the remaining loose ends from books one and two and will contain some of the most positive, uplifting, and exciting Christmas-themed messages yet.

For example, this story will convince you that God truly is on your side, and this message will change the way you face your life challenges and lessons.

The book is also packed with more heart-stopping adventure and breath-taking beauty.

Also expect the same unpredictable and realistic plot twists and turns, interesting characters, humor, personal transformation and enlightenment. We even promise to add a few more of Amy’s poems. A Fall from Heaven makes yet another extremely-popular holiday read.

The plot and much of the content has been written, and will become available in 2010 or 2011, depending on how well the first two books take off (hint, hint – tell all your friends! Blog about ChristmasNovels.com!).

Christmas Book

Looking for a good Christmas book?

If you’re on a budget, try Gone but not Forgotten, which you can get for FREE from www.FreeChristmasBooks.com. It’s very insightful and engaging – written with short, catchy chapters that keep you promising yourself to stop reading and get back to work after just one more.

You can get extra copies for $1 each to pass along as appreciated gifts that go along really easily on your Christmas budget.

If you’re more interested in quality than price, the author of Gone but not Forgotten has just completed a major revision and renamed it Courage, Love & the Meaning of Christmas, which is more indicative of the book’s content – adventure, romance, and a surprisingly-thorough explanation of the Meaning of Life and of Christmas. Pick up this Christmas book and it’s sequel, The Perfect Gift, also at FreeChristmasBooks.com.

I enjoyed The Perfect Gift even more than the first book. The main difference is that one of the main characters this time is Ski, the roommate of the main character. He’s funny and unique and keeps the dialogue and plot interesting on many surprising levels.

If you read those books, please come back and post your opinion of them here.

Stocking-Stuffer Books

What makes a good stocking-stuffer book?

First, it must be a good, easy read. Everyone appreciates a light read for the holidays.

Second, it must be inspiring. If not, maybe it’s good…but not perfect.

Finally, it mustn’t be too expensive. If you’re paying fifteen bucks, it’s a gift, not a stocking stuffer.

So if you’re looking for a perfect stocking stuffer book, you’ll want to try Gone but not Forgotten by Shaun Roundy. Not only is it a good read, but you can get a copy of this Christmas book for FREE! Pick up as many additional copies as you want for just $1 each at www.FreeChristmasBooks.com.

While there, be sure to check out the major revision, Courage, Love & the Meaning of Christmas, which they claim is ten times better than the popular original, and the sequel, The Perfect Gift.
