Good Christmas reads

This is a word of greeting for The Review section of Dec. 23.

To Colin McNickle for his column “‘The White Cat of Christmas': A not-quite Dickens of a carol”: Nice. Maybe it's an angel. Don't tell

To Alan Wallace for his A Page of Books column “Insights from Christmas present(s)”: Truth. After all the discussion about how you read a book, all a reader wants is to receive a book or two that will take the chill out of winter and, just as importantly, to gift a few books that are enjoyed and cherished by the recipients.

To Gina Barreca for her column “Five people to cross off your Christmas list”: You write nicely; this is an enjoyable read. It wasn't until after I finished it that I realized that you defined what Christmas is all about with the wrong “J” word. It's not about “joy;” it's about Jesus. Sorry.

To all, thank you for your Christmas essays.

Dave Reale
