I have decided to make this year an All Book Christmas. Instead of buying gifts that nobody really wants (green sweater, electric wine opener, heated socks), I plan to give all books for Christmas.
The upside is that I’ll get to spend hours in book stores searching for that one special book for each person. I may even have to sit in the cafe, while sipping a hazelnut cappuccino, and browse through some of them. There may be people I have to talk to for suggestions and that’s always a great conversation starter.
Since I have such a wide variety of people on my list (male, female, young, not so young, wild, innocent, passionate, sensible), I’ll need to hit all areas of the store. The research may take days…even weeks. I know it’s a tough shopping ordeal, but I’m up for it. After all, I’ve been training all my life.
So, now I need your help. Offer suggestions to me for all my categories. What would you buy and for who?
