Book #50

Do you see that?  #50!  I made it to the end of my challenge with over a month to spare!  I am so proud of myself.

I am not done reading for the year of course (I have already started my next book), but I am done blogging about books on this site.  This is my family blog, but I am going to do another reading challenge in 2016, so I set up a book blog called "Breathe to Read'

You can check it out http://www.breathetoread.com/

Today I am reviewing A Christmas Carol

It falls under the category:  A book that takes place at Christmas time.

I saved my Christmas book for last on purpose.  Wanted to read it as close to the holiday season as I could.  I am sure I don't need to tell a single sole what this book is about.  Unless you have been living under a rock, you have probably seen at least one Christmas Carol movie over the years.

Normally I would not read a book where I have seen the movie.  But I have never read A Christmas Carol.  I really don't know how I have not read the book, but I wanted to at least see how closely the movies resembled the book.

They did a really good job.  There was not a lot in the book that was left out.  A few minor details that really did not affect the story in any way.  The book is written in the style of the time, but even then, it was not a complicated read.

I recommend reading it, even if you have seen the 100 versions played on TV.  A classic is a classic.

Rating:  4 1/2 stars
