With the holidays quickly approaching, I wanted to do something different and fun. My Christmas picks! Fittingly, my first picks are James Patterson books with “Christmas” in the title. I’ll add some new releases as well as, a few of my personal choices and more fun gifts for the book enthusiast on your list.
Additionally, I thought it would be fun to play a game. Really it’s a test that won’t feel like a test because you’re having so much fun playing and shopping. I want to see if you’re reading my post and if you enjoy the interaction as much as I do. So let’s see if you can tell me how many times the word ‘Christmas’ pops up on this post. The first correct answer that I receive in the comment section (with comment ; )) will receive a free James Patterson hardcover from yours truly. In the spirit of Christmas! Enjoy these classic clips…
