Give A Reader’s Favorite Gift

Stuck for what to buy?  You can always give a book…

Borders and Barnes & Nobel are obvious places to browse – in person or online.  Amazon provides category browsing, as well as links to award books, customer favorites, and a lot (too much) more.  Lots of people love Powell’s.

But have you tried these?

BookPrizeInfo collects book prize winners (for 32 literary prizes) by category.   Take your pick of prizewinners in Crime, Fiction, Non-Fiction, or Science Fiction.

National Public Radio recommends titles to share, staff picks, and more in stories and reviews – from graphic novels to stories of love and the universe.  You’ll probably enjoy just reading the reviews.

And of course the American Library Association has a list (of lists) of recommended reading.  Put your glasses on; this one is thorough.  Check out the 2009 Notable Book Selections.

Locally, the Avid Reader has filled Tower Books’ niche on Broadway.  Staff will search, recommend, order, and wrap books for you.

If  you just need a couple of books for yourself to read over the holidays, get yourself into the SCC LIBRARY before we close at 8:00 p.m. Dec. 17!

Or visit the Sac Public Library branch near you.
