I don't know about you but this time of year makes it difficult to get much quality reading time in. Since I need to read, I find myself shifting to novellas rather than full-length novels to take advantage of small bits of time. And I really like Christmas-themed novellas -- they capitalize on the magical season and spirit of Christmas in a shorter form. Over the years, I usually gravitated to the same types/time periods of Christmas novellas as I do for my regular romance reading -- time travels, historicals and especially Regencies.
Some of my past (and current since I reread them, too!) favorites have been:
(Yes, that is my book over there -- I simply love the other two stories in the collection!)

So, how about you? Do you like Christmas-themed stories? Do you cut down on reading time during the holidays? Do you like/read full-length or shorter works during this hectic time of year? Please share your holiday reading habits with me and I'll pick one person to receive a copy of one of my favorite Christmas books!
I hope your holidays are happy and that the New Year is one filled with health and prosperity! Merry Christmas! Happy Hanukkah! Happy New Year!
