The Christmas Spirit Reading Challenge

I know I'm late signing up, the challenge started yesterday, but better late than never.  This is the fifth year my good friend Michelle has done this challenge on her Christmas blog, The Christmas Spirit.  You guys know I'm a sucker for Christmas, and I've participated in this every year, except for last year when I disappeared.  

I'll be doing the Mistletoe level, 2-4 books.  I'll also be doing the Fa La La La Films challenge.  I have no shortage of Christmas movies to watch.

If you guys are interested in the details, here they are from Michelle's announcement post:
