Last Minute Christmas Gift Ideas

Have you waited until the last minute? Afraid of being trampled in holiday crowds? Then these gift ideas are for YOU.

Not everyone reads, but everyone SHOULD. Some people just need the right book. Some need to be mobile and would benefit from an ebook or an audio book. Some are young people who need an adult in their lives who values reading.

As an author, you’ll want to give your own book as often as possible. But if you’ve gifted to everyone you know or it’s not the right genre for someone, considering giving a book by another author. This community is all about support and purchasing and giving books is one way to do it.
Here are some suggestions:
