Holiday Shopping

I hate to lead of a post with a statement about our sad economy, so I won’t. Sure it’s a tough time, but I won’t allow that to suck the joy out of life. The holidays are coming and we owe it to ourselves (and our ailing economy) to celebrate not mope.

Booksellers are out in full-force telling their customers that books are the perfect gift for any budget. (Many of us have known that for years.) And no matter what the naysayer may argue, there are books for everyone—even people who don’t really like books.

IndieBound, supporter of independent bookstores, has a holiday campaign featuring eye-catching and clever image and tagline combinations on their website. I find them quite delightful.

This is my favorite:

Followed closely by this little raindrop-shaped Santa (what is that on his face?):

Here are some more tidbits:
Shop Indie: nuture your community this season.
Books: return dividends for life.
Why a book?: Because a new tie never changed anyone’s life.
Affordable. Portable. Memorable. Books are a gift beyond measure.
Give love. Give time. Give joy. Give books.
A Book: The perfect gift for someone who has everything. The perfect gift for someone who has nothing.

My plan was the end my post here, but I got an email this morning about F+W’s warehouse sale! We’re renting out the old Linens ‘n’ Things building on Fields Ertel Road from November 28 (Black Friday) until January 4. With a wide variety of topics and quality titles, you just might be able to find something perfect for everyone on your list—and for cheap…but they don’t need to know that.
