Last Minute Gifts from Review Direct


DECEMBER 2018

What is it about books that make them such perfect gifts? So many
things....
they're always the right size, never go out of style, easy to wrap (this is
a
biggie), there's a book for virtually every taste, and they last even
longer
than fruitcake! Take a look at this month's REVIEW DIRECT [1] 
[2]selections,
and consider some of these fine independently published books for your last
minute gift-giving and for your own bookshelves! Also, check out Amy
Shamroe's
essay below where she offers additional last-minute gift-giving ideas.

	RUN, RUN RUDOLPH: LAST MINUTE GIFTS FOR THE BOOK LOVERS IN YOUR LIFE  

	BY AMY SHAMROE 

	_"A book is a gift you can open again and again."_ --GARRISON KEILLOR 

	Maybe you are like me and thought an early Thanksgiving would give you
plenty
of time to prep, but then one celebration leads to another and we are now
just
days away from Christmas and the end of the year. Or maybe you checked your
list
twice and realized you forgot something, or perhaps you've received a gift
you
were not expecting from someone not on your list? Whatever your reason for
needing a gift pronto, here are some ideas that deliver - quickly.  

	Commodity Book Candle 
HTTPS://SHOP.NORDSTROM.COM/S/COMMODITY-BOOK-CANDLE/5013539 [3] 

	Surround yourself with the scent of cedarwood, bergamont, amber, and
cyprus to
take you away to another place while you read a book to do the same. 
 Delivery by 12/24 if you order by 12/22 

	Book Journal
HTTPS://WWW.AMAZON.COM/READING-JOURNAL-LOVERS-POTTER-GIFT/DP/0307591662 [4]


	Even in the last minute age of Amazon, tradition lives on. Handwritten
notes
about favorite books are a treasure even in our digital world. You can send
this
classic book journal through the magic of rush delivery for the person who
will
enjoy taking a moment to ponder and write about their most recent reads. 

100 Books Scratch Off Poster
HTTPS://WWW.UNCOMMONGOODS.COM/PRODUCT/100-BOOKS-SCRATCH-OFF-POSTER [5] 

	Who is keeping score? Good bibliophiles. This scratch off poster gives
readers
a fashionable way to keep track of their classics... and maybe show off
just a
little to visitors.  

	Overnight shipping available. 

Audible Subscription
HTTPS://WWW.AUDIBLE.COM/EP/HOLIDAY-GIFT-GUIDE-2018 [6] 

	Yes, there are some who still think audiobooks don't count as reading a
book.
The rise in people who say they rely on audiobooks over the last five years
seems to suggest otherwise. A new audiobook every month for the busy
booklover
is a great way to show you care- and it is all digital for speedy delivery.

The Great Courses
HTTPS://WWW.THEGREATCOURSES.COM/CATEGORY/LITERATURE-LANGUAGE.HTML?CFM=MEGA_MENU
[7] 

	From the Bible to Russian Literature, give the gift of literature
lectures. The
Great Courses offers courses exploring literature, myths, and countless
other
topics given by the best lecturers on the topics from universities around
the
world. These lectures can be given individually or a gift certificate can
be
ordered for the recipient to a lecture of her/his choice. 

	Brilliant Books Monthly
 https://www.brilliant-books.net/surprise-book-month [8] 

	This one actually comes from the Jenkins Group's own backyard. Independent
bookstore Brilliant Books offers more than a choice of the latest releases
from
major publishers. The recipient receives a card with questions to help
staff
individually select books for them every month of the gift subscription.
The
personal touch makes all the difference and has helped this unique offering
go
from a local gem to a gift given all around the world.  

	Print out or email available with purchase for last minute.
