The People What They Want
Look, you don’t want to be one of those last
second holiday shoppers this year. You don’t want to fight
the crowds and you don’t want to fight the traffic. You are
prepared for the first time in forever to actually get your gift
buying done early. Just one problem.
You aren’t sure what to get everyone.
Here are a few helpful suggestions.
Have the moms in your family been talking about these great
ideas they’ve had for years now? Well, tell them to
put their money where their mouths are and buy them a copy
of The Mom Inventors Handbook: How to Turn Your Great
Idea into the Next Big Thing by Tamara Monosoff.
The author provides a step by step plan on how to take your
idea and make it into reality. And, hopefully, a bunch of
love all things grandparent-ish, so why not provide them with
a way to make sure that their stories are preserved for future
generations. A Grandparent's Legacy: Your Life Story
in Your Own Words does just that, inviting them to
share their family history, life story and cherished memories
in a unique and engaging format.
And let’s not forget about dad.
Wanna see him laugh on Christmas morning? Then pick him up
a copy of Father Knows Less Or: "Can I Cook My
Sister?": One Dad's Quest to Answer His Son's Most Baffling
Questions by Wendell Jamieson.
Inspired by Jamieson’s young son’s
penchant for badgering him with questions about anything and
everything, Jamieson compiled a list of questions from kids
(like the one used in the title) and got the real answers
from expert adults. Hilarity ensues and giggles are guaranteed.
finally, for the aspiring writers in the family (there’s
one in every family), it would be tough to present them with
a more insightful and more inspiring book than How
I Got Published: Famous Authors Tell You in Their Own Words,
written and compiled by Ray White and Duane Lindsay.
White and Lindsay spent several years gathering
stories from authors as to just exactly how they got published.
From bestsellers to rookies, writers from a variety of genres
share their very different tales as to how they eventually
got their name on the cover of a book.
