A Literary Christmas 2019

A Literary Christmas 2019


brought to you by In the Bookcase

The Rules are simple – pick your Christmas reads for 2019, write a blog post about them, and link back to In the Bookcase.



I honor of the Magi, who brought the Christ child three gifts, I read three Christmas tales each December. This year I will be reading:

The Battle of Life by Charles Dickens 

The Nutcracker and the Mouse King by E. T. A. Hoffmann

At Christmas Time by Anton Chekhov

Literary Christmas selections from 2015, 2016, 2017, and 2018

Have a Blessed Christmas

  3. Awesome booklist for A Literary Christmas, Joseph! You have me curious about this obscure title, The Battle of Life, by Dickens...

    I'll be excited to hear more about your holiday reads. :)

    Merry Christmas!
