Boo Humbug! by Rene Gutteridge and GIVEAWAY!

It may be a little too early to think about Christmas much, but this book is definitely one you will want to check out! It is so funny! It is a short read, which is ideal for those busy holiday weeks and it is an excellent companion to a cup of hot chocolate and some sugar cookies. If you enjoy reading Christmas themed books during the holidays, this is one you will definitely want to add to your list!

About this Book:

Readers have come to love the eccentric characters from Skary, Indiana, in Rene Gutteridge’s popular Boo! series. Now, in Boo, Humbug! they’re back – and they’re stirring up a large amount of holiday havoc.

It’s Christmastime in Skary, and the town is planning an original production of A Christmas Carol with a horror spin. As showtime approaches, things go very awry for director Lois Stepaphanopolis. She panics when she discovers that her marketing director loathes Christmas and that the audience has been promised not Dickens’ A Christmas Carol, but the real Christmas story. Can the actors pull off the improv of all improvs and convince their community to embrace the true meaning of the Christmas season?

Boo, Humbug! offers readers a delightful glimpse into small town, community life with heartwarming humor and winsome characters. And in the end, the true meaning of Christmas shines out bright and clear, in a decidedly un-Skary way.

About Rene:

Rene Gutteridge is the author of 10 novels, including the Boo series, the Storm series, The Occupational Hazards series and My Life as a Doormat, a Women of Faith selection for 2006. She has been published over 30 times as a playwright, and holds a degree in screenwriting, graduating magna cum laude from Oklahoma State University. Rene is married to Sean, a musician, and they have two young children. They make their home in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.

What are you reading this week? As you can tell, I have been busy reading fiction, but I have also been throwing in a few non-fiction books as well. Do you have any holiday books that you especially love? Leave me a comment to tell me about the books that you love and you could win my copy of Boo, Humbug! for yourself! I will draw next Friday, November 9th, so that you will have it in plenty of time for the holidays!

Smiles and Loves! Janis

I don't have any particular Christmas book that I love but every year Steeple Hill releases several holiday themed books in the 2 or 3 months preceding Christmas. I save them all to read in Dec. to get in the spirit. Please enter me in your contest.
