From classics to recently published, here are four Christmas-themed books you should add to your Amazon shopping cart.

A Christmas Carol | By Charles Dickens

Price: $6.20 (Amazon)

Pick up this famous classic about one man’s transformative journey (thanks to Christmas and some otherworldly visitors). Join Ebenezer Scrooge as his old friend Marley and the ghosts of Christmas Past, Present, and Yet to Come endeavor to change him from a grumpy, greedy old man to a joyous, generous soul. A book can’t get any more holiday-related than this!

Letters from Father Christmas | J.R.R. Tolkien

Price: $20.20 (Amazon)

Reminisce about your own childhood imagination with Tolkien’s short stories, told in the form of letters from St. Nick himself! Lose yourself in the inventive stories that range from a polar bear falling through Santa Claus’s ceiling onto his dinner table to the reindeer getting loose and scattering the world’s presents all over. This book will put you on a sleigh ride that’ll definitely make you smile!

 

The Gift of the Magi | O. Henry

Price: $14.18 (Amazon)

One couple’s loving Christmas Eve can remind all of us of the true meaning of the upcoming holiday! Della and Jim don’t have enough money to buy each other the Christmas gifts they feel each other deserves, so they each make a sacrifice to secure these gifts. But, after giving each other the gifts they sacrificed for, they quickly realize that money isn’t the most important thing during the holiday season. You might need some tissues for this one!

Dash and Lily’s Book of Dares | Rachel Cohn & David Levithan

Price: $8.12 (Amazon

Get lost in New York City during the holidays with Dash and Lily! Dash says “bah humbug” to the holidays, and Lily is the complete opposite. But once Lily leaves behind a red notebook filled with dares — and Dash decides to do them — everything changes. You can only imagine what takes off from there!
