I went a little crazy yesterday. With all those discounts, free shipping, remarkable book titles, gift wrapping – I could not resist. Books are one size fits all and no worries about gluten or sugar-free horrors. The only other item I could think of as a good gift would be coffee, but not everyone likes coffee – so I sent that to myself.
Some say the Cyber Monday discounts will continue through December, and sometimes get better, but I don’t want to think about that. I’m done.
Tempting books to buy for Christmas gifts:
This is a real book: ” illustrated guide to more than 75 of the world’s most celebrated, rare, and seminal books and handwritten manuscripts ever produced, with discussions of their purpose, features, and creators.”
For arm chair travelers and those who have been everywhere: “an illustrated account of human movement, travel, exploration, and scientific discovery…” from the Smithsonian.
Recipes – sounds like fun for someone else’s kids.
Best to read it before someone makes a musical out of it.
For all your friends reminiscing about another time: “If your funny older sister were the former deputy chief of staff to President Barack Obama, her “charming” (Kirkus), behind-the-scenes political memoir would look something like this!”
