Buy Books for the Holidays is a grassroots effort to encourage books as THE gift of choice this holiday season. I love her reasoning:
- “Books are a good value for the amount they cost. They provide information, entertainment, encouragement, and escape. They challenge our thinking, make us laugh, and inspire our dreams. They look lovely sitting on our shelves or coffee tables.
- Books are diverse. I recognize that not everyone in your life might like to read. But thankfully, there’s a book for just about every interest. There are even books that are just pictures or recipes…cool, huh???
- Giving books makes you look intelligent and cool. Enough said.”
You can read Amy’s original post here or you can head straight to the Buy Books for the Holidays blog, which is dedicated exclusively to the campaign. We’ll be chiming in with some of our favorites here, and as part of the November Carnival of Children’s Literature at Mommy’s Favorite Children’s Books. The theme: The Gift of Reading. If you don’t want to wait, you can check out last year’s carnival with a similar theme that MotherReader hosted.
