You may have noticed the lovely new button on the left-hand side of the blog here that shouts "Buy Books for the Holidays!". The ingenious Amy, of My Friend Amy, creator of the extravaganza that was Book Blogger's Appreciation Week, has done it again with the launch of a campaign for bloggers to encourage the purchase of books as gifts this holiday season! The button will take you to this great blog, filled with suggestions of great gift ideas along with reasons why books make wonderful presents.
If you're a book blogger, join her campaign here to commit to buying books for the holidays and spread the word. And if you're a consumer, consider books when doing your holiday shopping. We'll all be watching our dollars so carefully this year and books come in all price ranges (not to mention that they always fit!). Rather than buying yet another toy for the child in your life, why not buy them a book, a gift that truly keeps on giving, each time you read it with them, or they read it on their own! Giving a book to your friends and family is like giving them multiple gifts because they will open it and find something new for days and days as they read it!
