This post will be a short one, but since this is the season of giving and books make great gifts, I ‘ve been thinking about all the books that have influenced me during my life especially at this time of the year. This may sound cliché, but the one book/short story in any form that I always come back to is A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens. Having read the story multiple times, and seen the different theatrical versions, I would have to say that my favorites brought to the screen had Ebenezer Scrooge portrayed by George C. Scott and Mr. Magoo!
What Christmas/Holiday books have had an impact on you? The Gift of the Magi? The Grinch Who Stole Christmas?
Will you be giving books as gifts? E-books as gifts? Amazon or Barnes & Noble gift cards? Maybe a gift card to a local independent bookstore like The Tattered Cover here in Denver? Let’s have a conversation on what books have impacted your life at this festive time of the year.
