    1. I chose this book for one of my book clubs after reading about it in Ohio Country LIving, and I was able to get 10 copies of it from our wonderful Washington County LIbrary System We will be discussing it day after tomorrow very excited about it because it is an excellent collection of a variety of Christmas stories all about Ohio and written by Ohio Authors It is a perfect December read for clubs and individuals

    2. These stories are mostly rather short, which is perfect to enjoy at the busy holiday season The Ohio connection is sometimes in the story itself, and sometimes just buried in the author s biography, but the Christmas connection is right on top I liked that the stories spanned both tone and era despite the similarity of topic, it felt like a great variety was on offer.

    3. I enjoy reading Christmas themed books at Christmas time I just happened to come across this title at the library in a display of Christmas books Excellent Christmas stories set in Ohio by Ohio authors Not all are bright lights and tinsels, but every one is a winner
