Quick Christmas reads under 300 pages
By Post Public Library Staff
It’s the most wonderful time of the year!
Searching for a quick Christmas read that makes you crack a smile? Look no further. One of the best ways to escape the world around us is to check out for the weekend and read. However, it can be tough to start a novel on a weekend and find time to continue reading during the busy week. That’s why we’ve been focusing on “weekend reads,” books that clock in with fewer than 300 pages — and sometimes, even fewer than 200.
One of our favorites, “The Christmas Journey” by Donna VanLiere, is only 68 pages. This eighty-mile journey of a common carpenter and a simple peasant girl is one of the most powerful stories in history and, through VanLiere’s retelling, shows that the Nativity is alive in our modern world.
Coming in at 162 pages is “The Christmas Swap” by Melody Carlson. All Emma Daley wants this holiday season is a white Christmas, but the young teacher and struggling musician sure can’t find that in sunny Arizona. Luckily, there’s someone living in the perfect mountain home in the Colorado Rockies looking to make a vacation trade this year.
Some of our other holiday reads that are guaranteed to uplift your spirits in less than 300 pages include:
“An Ivy Hill Christmas” by Julie Klassen (210)
“The Christmas Remedy” by Cindy Woodsmall (194)
“A Christmas Home” by Greg Kincaid (225)
“A Quilt for Christmas” by Sandra Dallas (242)
“A Christmas Message” by Anne Perry (163)
“It’s A Christmas Thing” by Janet Dailey (234)
“A Dog’s Perfect Christmas” by Bruce Cameron (283)
“Skipping Christmas” by John Grisham (177)
“The Christmas Visitor” by Linda Byler (237)
If you don’t have time to sit down, worry not! We have over 70 Christmas audiobooks for those on-the-go.
Come down to the library, open weekdays, noon to 5 p.m., and checkout your new favorite under-300 Christmas read.
