I'm trying to come up with suggestions for our book club for our November and December selections.  A book that really gets you into the holiday spirit.  Any suggestions out there?

My very, very favorite holiday book is called Miracle and Other Christmas Stories by Connie Willis. She's a sci-fi writer, but the stories, although mystical, aren't really sci-fi oriented. I re-read this book every Christmas...there's really something for everyone in the collection.

A Redbird Christmas by Fannie Flagg.  I have a copy but its a keeper: its signed by Fannie Flagg and was a gift from my BGFF along with a photo of her with Fannie as she was signing it.........Great book!

I have some other Christmas themed books on my bookshelf.  And several on my TBR pile for this holiday season.........
