I don’t know how everyone else shops for the holidays, but I like to get all mine done in November so it is out of the way! I’ve got a pretty hectic schedule this coming season, between working retail hours and studying for the final for my first grad class, things will be pretty tight, and last minute shopping will not be an option! (Though, Amazon Prime for Students is an AWESOME deal… with overnight shipping options for $3.99.)
For those of you struggling to come up with ideas, I’m going to make this entry a bit more interactive.
Since I know many (if not all) of my readers, I’m going to take on the task of answering some reader’s advisory questions you may have for me. Submit a comment and I will write back with some suggestions — and a link to the book.
- If you’d like a book recommendation for yourself, so long as I know you, I can probably suggest one right off the bat. (Otherwise, tell me about yourself.)
- If you are looking for a book for someone else, give me a bit of info on them, and I’ll do my best!

Garrett, not sure of the name of the book, think it’s “Mark and Gabby A Journey of Hope” by Mark Kelly. Recommendation?? I think it will be amazing. I watched the tv special Prime Time with Diane Sawyer on Monday evening. I cried………..
Ah, you’re looking for Gabby: A story of Courage and Hope by Gabrielle Giffords and Mark Kelly.
If you’d like something similar…. I’d probably recommend A Stolen Life: A memoir by Jaycee Dugard, the woman who was kidnapped as a child and held captive for years in a garden shed. I believe Diane Sawyer had a special with her, too.
If you’d like something a teensy bit more light-hearted, Love is a Mix Tape: Life and Loss, One Song at a Time. by Rob Scheffield (editor of Rolling Stone).
All of these books are non-fiction, discussing the subject of the strength of a human spirit, despite any obstacle that may be in the way.
Hope you like them! 🙂
Hey Garrett, I nominated you for the Versatile Blogger Award! Check out the specs here: http://bit.ly/tvEEN7
