We’re gearing up for the holiday season and we have popped up in your neck of the woods, again, wherever you are, to offer you some great reads along with great convenience, great friends, and belly-aching fun!  Although there seems to be a surge in COVID cases again as of late, right now I don’t feel as afraid as I did in 2020 and 2021.  

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, warm seasonal colors!

Because the RRBC catalog is filled to the brim with books, here at our PUBS, you can visit our BOOK ZONES and 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 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 2022 “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 in charge of this spaceship, have you?  That’s right – this “Nonnie” only knows how to soar higher and higher and do things BIGGER and better 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.  But, what’s most unbelievable to me is… none of you won that contest last year!  What is going on with you people?  C’mon!  Wake up!  Snap out of it! Shake it off!  Git ‘er dun this year!  

Be on the lookout for our random Amazon Gift Card giveaway days via our blog here!  You could be a winner!

It’s time to VOTE in our 2022 RAVE AWARDS Contest. We’re also announcing the winners in our 2022 KCT INTERNATIONAL LITERARY AWARDS Contest, and our first ever Micro Reads Contest during this event (but you’ll need to keep an eye on our PARTY LOUNGE for those announcements!)  November elections all over the country have come and gone, but we’re still 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, let us know what books you’re purchasing, 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 #BooksBudzPopUp22 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 Thursday, 12/22/22 by 11 PM CT.

  1. The PUBS has been great fun! I have totally enjoyed daily interactions. Thank you for putting the event together, Nonnie. Thank you, John, for the wonderful drinks in the Lounge and for keeping an eye on my shoes! The ginger snaps were phenomenal, Nonnie and I also ate way too many brownies.

    To everyone who bought one of my books, thank you! I appreciate each of you.
    To those of you whose books I bought, thank you for my winter reading!

    Merry Christmas, everyone and best wishes for a happy, healthy and prosperous New Year!


  2. Everything is absolutely beautiful! I knew it would be because Nonnie always does a fabulous job! I hope I can get to everything before the doors close. Life is beyond hectic for me right now, but I don’t want to miss a single page of this event. Fingers crossed! 🙂

    1. Oh, thanks for those kind words, Shirley! If I’m not amazing, know that I work hard at it every day!

      You like Johnny Gill, too, huh? 🙂 Tell me, what’s better than giving love on Christmas Day (and all year round for that matter)?

    1. Hi, Gregory! I chuckled when you said “this looks so organized!” Gregory, haven’t you been around RRBC long enough to know that ORGANIZATION and PROFESSIONALISM are the two things we do best? Stick around, buddy, it’ll hit you, if it hasn’t yet!

      We’re so glad you’ve joined us at this year’s PUB! Have a magical time!
