So: I'm here to suggest you give serious consideration to books -- whether print or electronic or audio -- for some of your holiday gifting. Friends, relatives, coworkers, your kids' teachers, the local library you support ... surely there's a book that's right for each of them. And for yourself, of course :-)
If you're open to suggestions -- none of them my title -- I've got your back. That is, for each of the past several years I've posted about a few books that I personally found noteworthy:
- "2016 best reads"
- "2015 best reads"
- "Books to savor, 2014 edition"
- "Books to knock your socks off ..." (posted in 2013)
- "That's entertainment! / Books for the holidays" (my 2012 list).
There you have it: Buy-a-Book Saturday! (Not to mention the obvious extension of the concept to Cyber Monday! And throughout the holiday season.) Nourish the meme! Spread the word!
