Buy books for Christmas II

Filed under: Commentary — editorialconsultant @ 12:29 pm

Even those who aren’t prodigious readers are likely to appreciate the gift of a book that focuses on their interests. Got an aunt who sends you hand-made sweaters and scarves each year? She’d probably love a book about knitting all wrapped up in sparkly paper. Those friends who canvassed non-stop before the election? Choose among dozens of texts about politicians and policy.

To make matters more convenient, you can even read the first chapters of some bestsellers online. Check out this page at The New York Times.

And, Amazon, helpfully, offers its list of “Most Gifted” –- the 100 books most often ordered with gift options — if you’re having trouble coming up with a book idea for someone on your list.
