The Christmas Train by David Baldacci

Tom Langdon, a weary and cash-strapped journalist, is banned from flying when a particularly thorough airport security search causes him to lose his cool. Now, he must take the train if he has any chance of arriving in Los Angeles in time for Christmas with his girlfriend. To finance the trip, he sells a story about a train ride taken during the Christmas season. Thereupon begins one of the most hilarious-and heartwarming-journeys ever told. Along the way, Tom encounters a ridiculous cast of characters, unexpected romance, and an avalanche that changes everyone's Christmas plans. As the mighty Southwest Chief chugs along, Tom learns what really makes the holiday special in a remarkable novel that will charm all who read it.

Skipping Christmas by John Grisham

http://www.paperbackswap.com/book/details/9780385508414-Skipping+Christmas

Imagine a year without Christmas. No crowded malls, no corny office parties, no fruitcakes, no unwanted presents. That’s just what Luther and Nora Krank have in mind when they decide that, just this once, they’ll skip the holiday altogether. Theirs will be the only house on Hemlock Street without a rooftop Frosty; they won’t be hosting their annual Christmas Eve bash; they aren’t even going to have a tree. They won’t need one, because come December 25 they’re setting sail on a Caribbean cruise. But, as this weary couple is about to discover, skipping Christmas brings enormous consequences–and isn’t half as easy as they’d imagined.

A classic tale for modern times, Skipping Christmas offers a hilarious look at the chaos and frenzy that have become part of our holiday tradition.

A Plump and Perky Turkey

 

This book does not have the holiday name in the title, but-of course-it is about Thanksgiving.  It is a funny children's book about a Turkey who outsmarts people in a village that want to eat him.  The villagers have clever ways to get a turkey for Thanksgiving, but the turkey is just as clever in escaping the village.

Glad Tidings: Here Comes Trouble / There's Something About Christmas :: Debbie Macomber

 

Christmas News! Read All About It!

This is a time for families, for togetherness, for memories. On Christmas Eve, Maryanne and Nolan Adams tell their kids the story they most want to hear how Mom and Dad met and fell in love. It all started when they were reporters on rival Seattle papers and next thing you know, Here Comes Trouble.

Christmas is also the time for fruitcake. Rookie reporter Emma Collins hates fruitcake; for that matter, she hates Christmas, too. When three Washington State women are finalists in a national fruitcake contest, the story is assigned to her. That's bad enough. It gets worse when she has to fly in a small plane (scary!) with a smart-aleck pilot named Oliver Hamilton (sexy!) and his scruff dog (cute!). In the end she meets three wise women, falls in love and learns There's Something About Christmas.
