Christmas Classics

Ever year for Christmas, my boyfriend gifts me a classic novel. It began back in 2008 when I read about a wonderful new edition and translation of War and Peace. I got that for Christmas and every year since then, a new classic novel have been added to my shelf. I was really good for the first 5 years making sure I read it each year – and I enjoyed them all.

But as my reading suffered – two kids, full time job, other hobbies … – so did my reading of these Christmas Classics, as we call them. As of this year, 2017, I’m hoping to get some of them read – maybe even all the four, I’m behind.
