One thing that I love about books is that they are so readily available. With Barnes and Noble and Amazon still offering guaranteed Christmas delivery (not to mention gift cards!), with the wide variety of books out there — instructive or enjoyable or beautiful — books are appropriate for so many on your holiday lists.
The folks at Simon and Schuster have put together a great giveaway package that will go out to one of our winners (U.S. or Canada residents). The winner will get one copy of EACH of these books.
If you are still looking for ideas to fill some stockings, consider these books for kids of all ages:
For the Family:
Fablehaven Boxed Set
By Brandon Mull
For the Little Ones:
For Tween Girls:
Dork Diaries (My 11-year-old daughter Amanda thought this one was pretty cute)
By Rachel Renee Russell
For Tween Boys:
Pendragon Boxed Set
By D. J. MacHale
By Jessica Verday
For Teens — and Adults who are young at heart!
Leviathan (Since we are fans of Westerfeld’s Uglies series, I’m looking forward to this one)
By Scott Westerfeld
Night World No. 1
By L. J. Smith
*Disclosure: I did not receive copies of these books to review, but Simon and Schuster is generously providing a copy of all of them to one of you.
The winner will get a copy of each book listed, but as your entry, leave a comment saying which book interests you most, and who in your life would appreciate it.
We will not run a column next week, so we will leave this open for two weeks, announcing the winner in our column on January 4.
The winner of the beautiful Andrew Zuckerman books Bird and Creature is #34 Wendy M.
