I asked how y'all felt about reading holiday-themed books, and 100 people responded. Thank you so much! And I have to admit that this poll is the very first time that the answers were almost perfectly divided:
--21% of you said that you never thought much about reading holiday-themed books. Makes perfect sense to me. Holidays can go past faster than the speed of light, so it can be difficult-- not only to remember them in the first place-- but to actually line up the appropriately themed books!
--24% of you said that you do read holiday-themed books, but you read them whenever the mood strikes you. This was my response. Sometimes it's July and I feel the need for a little Christmas spirit. It's a lot easier to pull out a book with the right theme than it is to dig out the decorations!
--27% of you said that you loved reading seasonal books during the holidays. I wonder if this is because you have children who are expecting this as part of their celebrations? I'm organized in many ways, but I can never seem to get it together enough to get the right holiday books lined up at the proper times.
--28% of you said that no, you've never really cared to read holiday-themed books. Not a thing wrong with that point of view either. My TBR shelves are packed, and many times I'd rather choose books from there rather than try to find holiday-themed ones.
Once again, thanks so much for your responses. You always give me food for thought!

- Hi! I'm addicted to books (especially crime fiction), laughter and traveling off the beaten path. In my free time, when my eyes aren't glued to the printed page, one of them is usually pressed against the viewfinder of my camera. Let's see... books, laughter, travel, photography. Anything else? Oh yeah-- my dream house wouldn't have a kitchen!
