It might be cold and rainy outside today, but it’s warm and toasty here in the shop, surrounded by beautiful books for the holiday season! As we hurtle toward Christmas—is there any other way in retail?—we like to display our favorite “coffee table” books from the past year. See the reviews of a few titles we’d like to see under our tree below.
Thank you to everyone who stopped in and shopped on Small Business Saturday. We had so much fun with our Indies First author Marian Szczepanski that we did it again with Crystal Allen this past Saturday. Crystal entertained both the staff and customers.
Tomorrow night we’ll host Ree Drummond. Yes, the weather outside is frightful, but she will be here, chatting with all of her fans. If you happen to drive by at midnight, the lights are sure to be blazing still ! A customer told me it will be like our Harry Potter midnight parties.
We are growing our heart 3 sizes for 2 more weeks to benefit Nottingham Park Library. Check out the list here. You are welcome to stop in or order online.

Since our book clubs don’t meet in December, I’m catching up (and even getting ahead) on my reading. I just finished Fannie Flagg’s latest—classic Fannie—and also some forthcoming spring titles. Right now, I’m reading Mary Coin. I can just imagine the despair of the Great Depression in Oklahoma.
What are you reading this week?
