        1. As I said, some of these I've had for a while. But yeah, it's a lot and I shouldn't have a problem finding one to fit my mood.

      3. I signed up! I have a ton of Christmas books, too -- way more than I can read in a week. I didn't list mine, but I liked seeing your list - you have some enticing titles on there. Just a heads-up: you might want to take Heartsong Cottage off the list, because it's really not a holiday book despite the cover. (It's good, just not all that Christmassy.)
