From all of us at BookMeABook, here’s wishing you a Happy Christmas and a Very Joyful and Successful New Year!

We hope 2010 brings for you all you wish for!

I was struck by the number of book titles in our library which have the word Christmas in their title. Of course, the word conjures up visions of festivity, family time, holiday making and good old Yule tide cheer! So, not surprisingly, most of the books which have these titles are romances, meant to be read all curled up in a nice warm comforter or razai, with your heater nicely warming the room.

Here are some of the more popular Romance titles that I can recall immediately:

Janet Dailey’s Let’s be Jolly! and Mistletoe and Holly
It Happened At Christmas, by Penny Jordan.
Mrs. Miracle, by Debbie Macomber.
Christmas with a Latin Lover, by Lynne Graham.
Eve’s Christmas, by Janet Dailey.
Blue Christmas, by Mary Kay Andrews.

Some Detective fiction also has a good dose of Christmas:

Carole Higgins Clarks’ A Holiday Mystery at Sea.
Hercule Poirot’s Christmas.
The Adventure of the Christmas Pudding.
The Seven and Father Christmas
Skipping Christmas by John Grisham.
The Christmas Thief, by Mary Higgins Clark

And of course, the all-time seasonal favourite, Charles Dickens’ The Christmas Books.

We even have A Christmas Carol, in graphic novel form.
