Books As Gifts For Christmas

Okay, so I may have been too busy to do much reading with the lead up to Christmas. That certainly doesn’t mean that I have been too preoccupied to visit bookshops. Afterall, books make great gifts and I do make an effort with my selections.

And yes, you heard right: bookstores. I love them and am dreadfully old school in that I go out of my way to support local business. I must confess to some internet purchases for my Errol Flynn collection but the whole online thing (generally) holds no appeal.

Anyway, here’s a preview of some of my purchases:

For the Son-in-Law In the Defence Forces:


For the Son-in- Law’s Wife or Daughter Numero Uno:


For the Youngest Daughter, steadily working her way through 1001 Books To Read Before You Die:


For a Fun Friend:


For a Little Person:


I have always loved Garrison Keillor’s quote “a book is a gift you can open again and again”. So true!

And yes, I just had to purchase something to put under the tree from Santa with my name on it. I earned it, fairly and squarely.

Have you added any books to your Christmas Wish List ? Perhaps that should be “many books”, hey……..
