Books for the Holidays

As Christmas is around the corner and with the rising number of cases of COVID-19, many countries are imposing travel restrictions and going under lockdown. Like last year, a lot of people had to cancel their travel plans and will most likely spend the Christmas holidays at home with a few family members and friends.

In such a case it won’t be easy to pass the time. One way is to read books with a Christmas feeling. There are so many novels with the Christmas theme. I am going to mention a few which are my favorite that you can get from any online book store.
