Yes, that one. I read it every year. Even though I've seen the movie version numerous times. The book does a better job of drawing one into the story.

"A Christmas Carol" by Dickens. Everyone should read this book, even if they've seen one or more of the ten thousand movies based on it.

Other than that, all I can think of is the Grinch.

Everyone recommends the "Skipping Christmas" book...I didn't like it. I didn't hat it, I just don't think it was all that good.

I don't know how anyone manages to become an adult without having read "A Tree Grows in Brooklyn", but I know it happens. I do not think of it as a Christmas book, but if you never read it, you might as well.

The Time-Traveller's Wife has a lot of the action set at Christmas time.

Mary Higgins Clark and her daughter have a couple of books that are short mysteries set at Christmas.

And for a classic, what about Little Women?
