A Christmas Blizzard by Garrison Keillor

You Better Not Cry: Stories for Christmas by Augusten Burroughs

In this caustically funny, nostalgic, poignant, and moving collection of memories, Burroughs recounts Christmases past and present—as only he could.

The Gift by Cecilia Ahern

In this modern-day fable, workaholic executive Lou Steffen shows an uncharacteristic burst of generosity towards Gabe, a homeless man who always seems to be in two places at once.

But can Gabe help Lou fix what's broken before it's too late?

The Christmas Cookie Club by Ann Pearlman

Each December a dozen women gather with 13 dozen cookies, and while group members come and go, there is one constant: cookies are exchanged and sisterhood is celebrated. This year, Marnie's hosting the shindig, and she muses about other club members and their problems—from domestic issues to the effects of the recession.

Home in Time for Christmas by Heather Graham

With the aid of enchanted petals, ancient potions and the peculiar magic of the season, Melody and Jake embark on an unimaginable Christmas adventure—and discover a love that transcends time.
