Seriously. Books have no shelf life, though they live on shelves.
Books are timeless gifts.
Books are for everyone.
Books are fun to buy!
So this year, start a holiday tradition. Take the family shopping at the local bookstore. Spend an hour or two browsing for everyone on your list. I guarantee you will not regret a minute of time spent this way. I still remember the sounds or our girls' voices piping up from different aisles with a shout of glee at whatever they've discovered. Or finding them curled up and reading their treasure before we even had a chance to get to the checkout line.
|Fireside Book Shop in Chagrin Falls has plenty to choose from!|
When you #giveabook, you are giving them something extraordinary. Maybe it's Adventure. Or Romance. Or History. You can give them a trip around the world or a trip to another solar system. You can give them Poetry. Or Science Fiction. Or a little Magic. Not just Holiday Magic, but Magic that lasts all year.
Books are keepers. As far as gits go, most people don't return them, they read them and pass them on. The gift that keeps on giving.
So give them all exactly what they want this year. In a book.
