Gift idea: Books
Makes a good gift for: Anyone
Whether the recipient is old enough to read or not, books can make a great gift for anyone - as long as you get the right person the right gift. I usually get someone a book that I have already read and think they will like, or a book by an author I know they like. So, without further ado, here are a couple novels I read and enjoyed this year that I think other readers would like.
I have provided links to these books on Amazon.com, but they should be readily available in your local bookstore (assuming Amazon.com has not killed your local bookstore). Going to a local bookstore (or Target or the like) is a great place to browse through some books - especially children's' books.
This book is a really great non-fiction story of President James Madison's slave, and his experience living on the plantation and in the White House:
This fictional story tells the story of The Tiger's Wife - I think it will appeal to men, women and teens alike.
This fictional story is told from the perspective of one orphaned twin brother who was raised in and around an Ethiopian hospital. A traveler or medical buff would enjoy this story, or just someone who likes a good story with a bit of mystery.
It's A Wonderful Life was based on this wonderful Christmas novella. What a great book to buy for a child, young adult or a family.
