Some years I make lists upon lists of books for all ages. This year I have one list. And it’s a good one. In no special order.
EDISON by Edmund Morris is the perfect book to give this holiday season. Historians will need it for their libraries. Florida residents will want it for their Florida bookshelves. And since Edmund Morris is a Pulitzer-winning biographer, everyone else on your list is going to want this book too. Boom!
THE WOMEN OF THE COPPER COUNTRY by Mary Doria Russell is a story after my own heart. It’s for all women. History in a novel. Love it!
I loved Erin Morgenstern’s first novel, THE NIGHT CIRCUS. Now she’s back with another blockbuster that will be great all wrapped up and under the tree. Good for guys and ladies, young adult. Step out of your usual zone and into the magical world of this compelling novel.
CHRISTMAS IN VERMONT by Anita Hughes is the perfect little novel to brighten up your holiday craziness. This one is her newest. I fell in love with CHRISTMAS IN PARIS a few years ago and have eagerly awaited each holiday book. A plus is that they are always trade paper. I usually save it for Christmas week.
The holidays tend to bring out the best qualities in most people. OUR BETTER ANGELS is all about kindness and it’s a wonderful gift…
Each holiday I ask for one book. This is it this year. I could so totally move into these homes. This for the book lover on your list.
Everyone loved Pat Conroy. And everyone is going to fall in love with TELL ME A STORY written by his widow, Cassandra King Conroy. She shares with us parts of their life together and it is a force.
Just when I was actually growing weary of Jojo Moyes, along she comes with a fabulous new novel that is based on history and is about books and real people. A great book to find under the Christmas tree.
Most of these books are available at Copperfish Books. The new hardcovers are discounted 20%. One gift that is always wildly appreciated is a Copperfish Gift Certificate. They are available in any denomination you choose. Great gifts for the kids to give their teachers, too.
This is but a sample of the great books of the season. There truly are books for everyone.
