What Makes A Good Holiday Read?

There's nothing like curling up with a good book on a cold winter's night. For many of us, there are certain things we want in our holiday reads. We want them to transport us to a place where we can forget about our own troubles for a little while and escape into someone else's world. Or maybe we want them to remind us that it isn't all doom and gloom out there, that there are still people out there who love life and have a sense of humor about it.

But what makes a good holiday read? A good holiday read is a book that you can't put down. It's a book that makes you feel like you're part of the story, and one that you don't want to end. It's the book that you think about long after you've finished it: a book that stays with you as if it were real life.
