Weekly Reads #3: Books for Christmas

Books make great gifts! Books are ideal gifts for kids and adults alike, and for all the parties you attend during the holiday season, a coffee-table book makes a great host(ess) gift. And if there is someone you know who should be reading and isn’t, buy them a book as a subtle hint 🙂

Tech books for the nerds among us, scrapbooks for the hoarders among us, sketchbooks for artists or a journal for someone who you know has a story to tell. There’s a book for everyone.

 

Weekly Reads Wednesday http---runwright.net

I started a Winter Reading Challenge in November and I’m trying to catch up.

So far, I have 40 points:

10 points: Read a book with a food (not a drink!) in the title.  I Was Told There’d Be Cake by Sloane Crosley

10 points: Read a book written by an author who has published at least 10 books. — Have A Nice Guilt Trip by Lisa Scottoline 

20 points: Read a “bookish book” (in which books play an important role, e.g. the setting involves a bookstore or library, a major character is an author, or a book that celebrates reading and books. Examples: The Book ThiefThe Shadow of the WindThe Thirteenth Tale, etc.) — Prosperous Friends by Christine Schutt (the main characters are writers)

If you’d like to join the reading challenge, it’s not too late. It started In November, it runs until the end of February and any book that you’ve started since the beginning of November that fits the categories, qualifies. Check out Megan’s post to sign up.

I created a What I Read tab on the blog to record all my book reviews. Check it out!

I am HAPPY that you’re reading my blog but I hope you’re reading books too… Books are fun! And I’m going to need lots of readers when my new novel gets published 🙂
