Blue balls white snow


We’re gearing up for the holiday season and we have popped up in your neck of the woods, wherever you are, to offer you some great reads along with great convenience, great friends, and belly-aching fun!  I know, everyone thought that because of the pandemic, we’d be having another “blue” Christmas and holiday season, just like the “blue” that has draped over our lives these past almost two years.  So, never wanting to disappoint, we ARE in fact, having another BLUE Christmas, but, it’s not the one you were expecting!  Last year’s blue was so beautiful, we couldn’t let it go.  We had to give it to you one more time!

Our shop has been categorized by price, genre, and for the second year in a row, by author!  You know how much you want to spend on books and you also know the kind of books you want to read, so, we have narrowed the process to make your holiday book shopping a breeze.  We’ve also ensured that you are able to, in one spot, know all the books that are on offer here by your favorite authors!  And, we’ve dressed the halls of this year’s PUB, in beautiful, wintry blues!

Because the RRBC catalog is filled to the brim with books, here at our PUBS, you can go straight to the books in your genre and those also in your price range, because all the books that are listed in the RRBC catalog, are not here in the PUBS.  Don’t ask me why…but, ’tis strange to me, too!  The good thing about that, though, is that there won’t be mounds and mounds of books for you to wade through to get to your next great read!

We have so many special treats in store for you here at the 2021 “BOOKS & BUDZ” POP-UP BOOKSHOP!  Returning this year, our Author “Reading” Room!  RRBC authors have come to sit and actually read snippets from their published works to us!  I did mention we had treats, didn’t I?  You get to listen and actually “see” your favorite authors and friends as they “read” to you, some in the most animated of voices!  Leave it to trailblazin’, quite often imitated RRBC to always do what others thought couldn’t be done!  You haven’t forgotten who’s flying this plane, have you?  That’s right – this “Nonnie” only knows how to soar higher and higher and do things BIGGER every year!

There’s more fun to be had! Drop by and play our BELIEVABLE OR NOT Game!  I mean there’s a lot going on in the world today that is truly unbelievable, right?  But, some things we just have to believe. 

It’s time to VOTE in our 2021 RAVE AWARDS Contest and this year we’d like your input in the 2021 NONNIE JULES “SUPREME” BOOK AWARD Contest, as well.  November has gone by and it’s not 2022 yet, but, we’re voting here at RRBC!

So, are you ready to begin checking off those holiday book purchases for the special readers in your world?  Are you also ready to take a break and listen in on some of our precious member-authors, whilst they give you a great “reading” without the crowds or the long lines?

Well, as with all our amazing events, sit back, relax in your robe or PJs if you wanna, and let your fingers start shopping!  And, while you came here to find some great books, we know that you’ll be leaving with a few new ‘budz’ as well! 

Don’t forget to leave your comments all around the site, don’t forget to follow the site, don’t forget to LIKE every page on the site, and lastly, we ask that you help us spread the word of this amazing event by sharing it all around your social media forums!  It’s open to the general public!  Please use the #RRBC #BooksBudzPopUp21 hashtags when doing so!

One final note:  The deadline to cast your votes in any contest and to also submit your answers to our BELIEVABLE OR NOT game will be Sunday, 12/12/21.

This year my family will be feeding the homeless on Christmas Day, and giving each who shows up a special gift.  What will you be doing?  Try giving extra love on Christmas Day!



FOR EVERY BOOK THAT YOU PURCHASE FROM THE “POP-UP” BETWEEN DECEMBER 2 AND DECEMBER 16TH, AND THEN SEND US PROOF OF YOUR PURCHASE VIA EMAIL to RRBCINFO@GMAIL.COM, you will receive a FREE entry into a drawing for A $50 AMAZON GIFT CARD!  But, that’s not all!  WE HAVE MANY OTHER RANDOM AMAZON GIFT CARDS TO ALSO GIVE AWAY, IN VARYING AMOUNTS, TOO!  Yes, you could win multiple times, so get to shopping and sending us those proofs of purchase from Amazon or B&N!

  1. Beautiful presentation, as always, Nonnie. I’m glad you used blue again, as its my favorite color, and makes everything look a bit different from all the sites colored with red and green. It’s calming, too and calming is what we could use right now! Thanks for this opportunity for the club authors to showcase their wares. I’m really enjoying perusing for new reads.

  2. This bookshop is amazing, Nonnie! It is beautifully done and from all the comments, it looks like a lot of visitors are already stopping by. Congratulations on another successful RRBC event and thank you for making it happen!

  3. Blue has been significant for me today. My daily word game centered around the word blue this morning. My daughter and I shopped today for holiday lights that had to have blue as the dominant color; and now to have blue be the thought color for RRBC is the perfect way to end the day. I can’t wait to get into Popup 2021. Thanks for everything you do, Nonnie!

  4. Ho! Ho! Ho! It won’t be a blue Christmas if you help to feed the homeless on this special day. Our family shall do the same. Plaudits to the blue and silver and all the joy I see here already.

    I’m playing the video as I type this. Thank you, Nonnie! 😀

  6. I got in late today and started making a turkey pot pie using leftovers, of course. Resting up and will get into the pop ups asap.

    Thank you Nonnie for always giving your best. Have a lovely weekend and happy holidays!

    1. Hi, Charles! I wish I could say that this was a team effort, but I worked from 7 AM yesterday until 4:31 AM this morning ensuring that all was just right. I tend to have these ideas late in the game and I won’t rest until I’ve implemented them somewhere. Some things might be missing, (UNBELIEVABLE might be misspelled somewhere in the game…LOL) but, I’m working on finding out if anything needs attention. I would never ask my team to work the hours I do, so, when it has to be done, it has to be (solo) “Non!”
