Angels We Have Heard: a book with angels or heaven in it
Candy Cane Colors: a book that has red and white or red and green on its cover
Christmas Tree: a book that takes place in a forest
Snowflake: a book where snow or winter is a prominent part of the story
Sleigh Ride: a book that has horses or a sleigh in it
Three Kings: a book with a king or kings in it
Christmas Feast: a book which is more than 450 pages in length
Figgy Pudding: a book which is less than 300 pages in length
Star of Wonder: a book featuring stars either on its cover or in its title
Under the Mistletoe: a book in which two characters fall in love
Toy Soldier: a book with at least one battle scene in it
Away in a Manger: a book which features the birth of Jesus Christ in some way
These books can be fiction or nonfiction (although I think the fiction would be more fun).
For better or worse, here are some of my picks:
Angels We Have Heard: This Present Darknessby Frank Peretti
Candy Cane Colors: Jurassic Parkby Michael Chichton
Christmas Tree: Skinshifterby Alycia Christine
Snowflake: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobeby C.S. Lewis

Read them if you wish or substitute your own books.
Until next time, may we each rewrite our world for the better.
