Buy Books!


So, you have a hard to shop for person (or two or three) on your Christmas list? Me too. What do you get the person who seems to have all they need? Or that person who wants for nothing?


How about a book!


Don’t give up on me here. I have reasons.


1. There’s a book out there for everyone. From women’s fiction to steampunk, these days a shopper can find any genre that the mind can imagine.


2. We all need an excuse to step away from techno overload.


3. A book is great when the electricity goes out. Just think how much your gift will be appreciated when that winter storm hits and the power is out. All you need is a flashlight.


4. Stories give us a new perspective. They allow us to step into the shoes of another person and give us a broader view of our world. Okay, that may not be a reason to buy a book as a gift, but it is one of the reasons I love stories.


Are you buying books this Christmas? Any favorites you’d like to share with us?

    We love books! We just bought a whole bunch of them but currently have just finished reading the books available in the Wingfeather Saga by Andrew Peterson and we can’t wait for him to finish the last one.

    I am funny about books. I don’t generally like to get them as gifts. I like to cruise the aisles and pick out what I read, so I LOVE book store gift cards. LOL As for me, I do enjoy giving books. The last one I gave was about the Holocaust and a man’s search for what happened to his family called The Lost. AMAZING book, and it was just right for my uncle. I give a lot of Christian fiction to friends. We have so many amazing authors among us who are “new” to my friends because they don’t necessarily check out the Christian fiction section. It’s fun to bring on that introduction! Looking SO forward to the day I get to “introduce” you to people!
