Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish. This meme was created because they are particularly fond of lists at The Broke and the Bookish. Participators in this meme love to share our lists with other bookish folks and would LOVE to see your top ten lists!
Each week we will post a new Top Ten list complete with one of our bloggers answers. Everyone is welcome to join. All we ask is that you link back to The Broke and the Bookish on your own Top Ten Tuesday post AND sign Mister Linky at the bottom to share with us and all those who are participating. If you don't have a blog, just post your answers as a comment. Don't worry if you can't come up with ten every time.. just post what you can!
1. A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens
Classics are classics for a reason, no?
2. The Polar Express by
3. Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus by Francis Church
Technically not a book, but an actual letter that was written by New York City newspaper man in response to a little girl's question in 1897. It endures until this day as a cherished part of the U.S. collective holiday memory.
4. A Tree Grows in Brooklyn by Betty Smith
This is my favorite book of all time, but there are some beautifully poignant holiday scenes that I love to read at this time of year - the sort of book that makes you reflect and count your blessings.
5. The Little Match Girl by Hans Christian Anderson
It breaks my heart every time I read it, but I love it this beautiful story.
6. A Child’s Christmas in Wales by Dylan Thomas
"It snowed last year, too. I made a snowman and my brother knocked it down and I knocked my brother down and then we had tea." Cracks me up, every single time.
A Christmas Memory, by Truman Capote
Beautiful - helps with the true meaning of Christmas.
9. The Gift of the Magi by O. Henry
Ditto for this one - an enduring classic.
10. (Luke 2:1-20), The Holy Bible
I'm Christian, so for me, Christmas is not complete without this.
