Book Blogger Hop December 20th - December 26th: "334" Is a Nebula-Nominated Novel by Thomas M. Disch

Jen at Crazy for Books restarted her weekly Book Blogger Hop to help book bloggers connect with one another, but then couldn't continue, so she handed the hosting responsibilities off to Ramblings of a Coffee Addicted Writer. The only requirements to participate in the Hop are to write and link a post answering the weekly question and then visit other blogs that are also participating to see if you like their blog and would like to follow them.

This week Billy asks: What is your favorite Christmas themed Fiction or Nonfiction book?

My favorite Christmas-themed book is J.R.R. Tolkien's Letters from Father Christmas, which I have reviewed here. The book is a compilation of letters that Tolkien wrote to his children in response to their letters to Father Christmas. Tolkien took up the persona of Father Christmas to write letters back to his children filled with inventive stories, a cast of adorable characters, and illustrations of pretty much everything. All of these letters complete with context and background information are included in the book. Essentially, this book gives the reader a glimpse into how Tolkien expressed his playful and caring love for his children over the years of their childhood. I go back to this book pretty much every Christmas and read through it.
