Christmas in May: Ordering Books

Novelist have long had an eye on writing tales for Christmas. Since Charles Dickens wrote a series of Christmas stories, including "A Christmas Carol," they have used the holiday season as a backdrop. Lately, they have almost flooded the market with Christmas-inspired books. In 2008 we saw Santa Clawed by Rita Mae Brown, The Spy Who Came for Christmas by David Morrell, Small Town Christmas by Debbie Macomber, A Christmas Grace by Anne Perry, The Christmas Sweater by Glenn beck, and Dashing Through the Snow by Mary Higgins Clark and Carol Higgins Clark.

Here it is May 21, only seven shopping months to Christmas, and the Thomas Ford Memorial Library already has these 2009 Christmas novels ordered:

  • Christmas List by Richard Evans
  • Christmas Promise by Anne Perry
  • Home for Christmas by Andrew Greeley
  • Lakeshore Christmas by Susan Wiggs
  • Plum Pudding Murder by Joanne Fluke
  • Wish for Christmas by Thomas Kinkade

I'm sure there will be more.
