Christmas in October?

October 1st, 2010 by Debbie's World of Books

Not really but I am getting ready for a project to support book buying for the coming holiday season.  I love reading and if you are reading this I assume you do as well.  Well, let’s help support all those bookstores out there and help encourage everyone to buy at least one book as a gift this holiday season.

I wanted to put together some book buying lists for all types of people and I’m hoping you all would be able to help me out.  If you can make one suggestion or ten it all helps and if you help advertise this survey it will earn you extra entries in the holiday giveaways I have planned. See the list of books I’ll be giving away below and I hope to add more by November .  I am thinking I will be putting together packages in several different genres to help advertise this project and will also be offering a Book Depository gift card for international participants.  So bring on the book suggestions and let’s hope for a merry book buying holidays!  I’ll be leaving this survey up until the end of the month and posting the lists and giveaways in late November to give everyone lots of shopping time.  Thanks everyone!

Even if you are not interested in the giveaways I would appreciate any posts, tweets, etc. advertising this event as I would love to get as many people to participate as possible.  You can grab the logo from my sidebar.  Thanks!

    For Christmas I highly recommend Peter John Lucking’s book, “Santa & The Little Teddy Bear.” My daughter, who is five, just loves it! The story is an original unique blend of tale, carols, music, song, and beautiful illustrations. It is more than just a picture book.

    I give a ton of copies of The Rabbit Factory by Marshall Karp to people as gifts- it’s the perfect mix of police procedural and comedy, I love it!

    This year I’ll also be giving The Splendor Falls by Rosemary Clement-Moore to a couple of folks.

    Hope this helps!

    I suggest Little Chimps Big Day by Lisa Schroeder for a childrens book. I haven’t filled out the survey, my computer is being weird right now.
    I’m double checking entries for Sat. Situation and since I hadn’t got a chance to visit you this week I thought I’d better throw in my suggestion real quick!
    Thanks for linking with us!
