As usual I have enjoyed this challenge. My goal was to read Christmas Tree level: Read 5 or 6 books and the additional level of Fa La La La Films: watch a bunch or a few Christmas movies.
I managed the books easily as I read 10 books but I never watched any Christmas films. I did watch a few episodes of Christmas stuff but not any films. Instead I watched the two first Hobbit film extended version before going to the cinema to see the third and final film.
I had mistakenly thought that last year was the 5th year, but it's actually this year. Yay! Are you ready!?
Like last year, there are multiple levels for participation, like children's books and watching Christmas movies AND the Christmas Spirit Read-a-Thon is back again this year. Keep reading for details!
