Christmas Jars Dec 6, 2008
Christmas Jars is my 5 star pick for this year. It was truly an inspiring book.
Sweet holiday story Dec 2, 2008
Sappy, yeah. But it's an uplifting Christmas book. It's not a religious book, just a feel good story (think Pay It Forward vein). This was a very fast read and made me want to go out and do a good deed for someone. I think we sometimes get so wrapped up in ourselves that we forgot even the smallest of kindnesses.
It was a good book to read this time of the year. Had I read it in February or something, I might have said it was too sappy and had some "flow" issues, but ya know what? It doesn't matter. It was a very sweet storyline. This would also make a great gift!
Silly premise, bad writing Dec 1, 2008
This may well be the worst little Christmas book you will ever read. It's based on the silly premise that jars of money, given with love, will change lives. The writing is unbelievably bad. (Richard Paul Evans doesn't come close) Strangely, this book was loaned to me by the same friend who introduced me to "At the Manger" last Christmas, which I plan to re-read, now that I've gagged my way through this one.
