Books For Christmas
Forget reading, forget reviewing and let's talk about presents.
I want to know if the books we talk about here are making it as gifts to friends and family, non-profit organizations or even gifts to ourselves.
For two seconds I considered gifting my copy of Animal, Vegetable, Miracle to a family member. I couldn't do it but I could buy a copy and wrap it up. It would be a great gift.
Last Child in the Woods may be good for some Mom's I know. I'm considering it (how many more days do I have?).
My Uncle needs a copy of Bottomfeeder and my Aunt a copy of Mountains Beyond Mountains.
I'd like to give each of my girlfriends a copy of An Unreasonable Woman.
Mom is out. She only reads mysteries.
I could go on but I want to know what books are on your list. Give us some ideas.

thanks to your high regard, i'm giving Bottomfeeder to my daughter.
I've given "Serve God, Save the Planet" and Saving God's Green Earth" to the church library. I hear they've been circulating.
What a great idea for a post! I'm not giving any books this year - mostly because the only adults we're giving to are teachers/husband's coworkers.
BUT I think Three Cups of Tea would be a fantastic gift. It doesn't come off as me pushing the green thing and is a fascinating and astonishingly relevant book.
I am gifting Sharon Astyk's book to some people this year.
I loaned "Animal, Vegetable" to a family member almost a year ago and she hasn't returned it, yet. Definitely give it as a gift. :)
I haven't decided on a bunch of peoples' presents, yet (we have how many days left?!!), so thanks for the ideas!
Poor Mom! You could give her a copy of Crimes against Nature or look into the Sneaky Pie Mysteries by Ms. Rita Mae Brown It is a wonderful mystery series, while not exactly enviormenatal, she writes about the nature around her and the animals in the stories talk to each other. Sounds sappy, but I love the series. Ms. Brown is a great writer.
I don't have specific titles yet, but I love giving "used" books for the holidays.
I'm putting together a gift basket of books for my Mom that I think she would like. Mostly juvenile chapter book titles that she didn't read growing up because she was in too poor of a town for a Library.
Hum.....I smell a post coming on.
At least the "used" and "recycled" idea is Green if not the titles.
becky - Yeah! Good choice. I'd love to hear how she likes it.
Joyce - What a great idea. Thanks for the inspiration.
green bean - You'll be happy to know that Three Cups Of Tea is on the bay area and national best seller list! I was happy to see it.
Susan B - Am I on your list?
donna - It sounds like someone needs to gift you with Animal Vegetable Miracle for Christmas.
RobJ - I'll ask my Mom if she knows the Rita Mae Borwn series. Thanks for the tip.
going crunchy - Used books is a great idea for xmas. I've not thought of that idea before. Thank you.
BTW - Our library went to part time a few years ago and we live in a wealthy community. I'm not sure how that happens but here we are.
