A Favorite Holiday Read
A lovely holiday treat and an ideal cozy read during a season that can be frantic and stressful. A Redbird Christmas has a cast of characters that are engaging, full of friendship and hospitality making this a must Christmas read!
*Included in the novel are Southern recipes for your bookish baking pleasure. This was my first attempt at the Sweet Potato Casserole recipe and it was so yummy even though my presentation was lacking a bit.
Recipes are at the end of the novel and made by A Redbird Christmas book characters. Enjoy!

More Shopping on Go Beyond
Keep choosing the wrong books - Your book friends will have a certain reading style that bonds you together. Maybe your group wants to read the classics or historical fiction only. Make sure you are in an agreement which genre you all prefer. I can honestly say we lost one or two members over time because our novel choices was not their cup of tea. Book clubs come in all shapes and sizes so if this group isn't for you by all means start a new one with the genre you like. The more book clubs the merrier! But be open to ALL genres. Take it from someone who use to only like fiction, now biographies/nonfiction are on my TBR list
Don't be a book hog - the book club discussion is over and now it's time to come up with your next read. Do you let your friends chime in with ideas or is there only one person picking the book titles? Let everyone have a voice in the selection or better yet come up with a way that
everyone will be satisfied on how you choose your novels
Agree to disagree is not your motto - let's get this out now. It's okay to hate your book club read and of course it's okay to love it. Everyone should be able to share their book opinion feelings and no one should shut anyone down. This is probably the number one book club killer so please be thoughtful of your book friends before it's too late
Book club what book club?
Meeting too little or too much is not a good recipe. You want to get together enough so that your group stays frosty but too much and everyone burns out including the hosts. A good rule of thumb is 5 to 6 weeks for a shorter novel and 7 to 8 weeks for a wee bit longer also make sure whoever is hosting only does it once a year or two times at the most
