Christmas RHRC post 1December is here and Christmas is less than three weeks away. (We are scrambling to get our holiday shopping done, too.) As you and your book club near your final gathering for 2013, we’d like to share some of our favorite books and literary pairings for readers of all kinds!

If you are giving the gift of Fannie Flagg this season then we recommend a photo album. This is a fitting and timeless gift to accompany this bestselling novel’s generation-spanning storyline.

A teapot is a central symbol in Tell the Wolves I’m Home, so pairing one with the book and some holiday teas will warm up any gift (Hint: We like chai and apple cinnamon this time of year!)

And finally, we recommend bundling The Wishing Thread, an enchanting debut novel, with yarn and a pair of knitting needles. A perfect read for book lovers and knitters alike!
