I don't know about the rest of you, but when I want to learn about something I buy a book. I have read books on many subjects, some I enjoyed and pursued and some that I felt held nothing for me. Well with Christmas coming and gifts to buy, the first thing I think is to get someone a book on a subject they enjoy. Is this wrong? I realize we now have Google and believe me I use it daily to look up things that I wonder about or to find the best price on an item. But I have to say that I hate reading on the computer and find a book to have so much more information then a quick Google search.
SO what are you buying for those on your gift list this year? My kids want anything but BOOKS, they all believe we have plenty. I don't agree, I send all read books to the local library for the Friends of the Library sale that helps raise funds. We have clear spaces on our shelves, so why not put a few good books under the tree for everyone on your list.
