Read your way to the Christmas holiday with a book-a-day suggestion with an Advent book newsletter.

Sign up below and receive a book-a-day email from Dec. 1 to Dec. 25.

While we don’t expect you to read them all (or perhaps you already have read some of them), it can help build a list of books to read in 2024 or discover a new author or two.

Take the book titles one step further and read them for our Winter Reading Challenge (you could end up winning a prize!).

If you want more books, check out our NextReads newsletters, which send new books to your inbox regularly.
