Behind on your Christmas shopping? Got some hard to buy for people that have just got you stumped? Here’s my suggestions for last minute gifts.
21st Century Dodos:
Anyone over thirty will find this packed with nostalgia. It’s the perfect book to dip into so you can give to those who aren’t big readers. Read my review here.
Ready Player One:
For the geeks in your life. It’s not had much publicity in the UK (except for us bloggers that nabbed a copy from NetGalley) so there’s a good chance it will be a pleasant surprise! Read my review here.
The answer for those of you who want your gift vouchers to be spent on books and not random stuff off Amazon. They can be bought and used in most bookshops in the UK including chains and independents. For more information visit their website.
Unbound Gift Certificate:
Unbound is a great publishing concept. You help get the book published by pledging your support. There are different levels depending on the project, from ebook to dinner with the author (or even pony trekking) and every level will get your name in the back of the book. If you opt for a hardback copy you’ll also get an ebook sent to you on the day of publication so you can get reading straight away. Whilst it’s probably a bit late to pledge on someone’s behalf you can buy gift credits so they can choose what project(s) to support.
Avoid the Christmas themed books. They are fun in the run up to the holidays but not so enjoyable in January when they are much more likely to be read!
