Yes, I’ve been pitching the perfect gift — a book — for a while now. I’m not the only one. There’s a new website where various celebrities present lots of good reasons why books should be on everyone’s holiday lists.
Here are a few from BooksAreGreatGifts.com:
- “Books make great gifts because they are an amazing way to kill time while your web site is buffering.” Jon Stewart
- “Books make great gifts because they are a perfect way to get a conversation started.” Barbara Walters
- “Books make great gifts because they make great friends. Your cherished book can hold your secrets, and you can tell it every secret you have. And, it can’t blab.” Maya Angelou
