Christmas Reader Advisory

Holly and I are going to enjoy a couple of days off for the holiday. We will be back on Tuesday ready to go as millions will need help with e-readers, looking for tax forms, and other typical year end library activities. In the mean time, you can extend the holiday spirit with some of these lovely Christmas themed books.

Happy Holidays!

It is that time of year when all the holiday themed romances start getting some circulation action. Today’s choice seems to be a book mashup of Sleepless in Seattle and Christmas in Connecticut.

Radio love doctor, Madison, dispenses relationship advice to the folks of San Francisco. Of course, she is has no boyfriend or family. Her staff at the radio keeps her personal life under wraps so she can continue her mystique as Dr. Love. At the same time we have Steven, a widower with a kid. Steven is lonely and of course “meet cute” circumstances bring our loveless Dr. Love and Steven, the lonely single dad together. Romance and Christmas follows. Of course there is a happily ever after!

Cue the music.
