The holidays are just around the corner. No matter which one you celebrate, almost everyone looks for something to give as a gift. Sometimes you need something for a family member. Other times, it's a co-worker and you're involved in a "Secret Santa" exchange. Or, perhaps you just want to donate to those less fortunate than you.
Whatever your motivation, consider giving a gift of words. Books are the window to another world and should not be overlooked when considering a gift. If an eReader is on someone's list, consider giving an eBook to go along with it. I remember, as a child, folks said you couldn't give someone a gift of an empty wallet or purse. You needed to put at least a penny inside before you gave the gift. That eReader is just like the wallet and purse; don't give it empty. Put a book or two inside to get the recipient off to a good start.
What about the little people on your list? It's never too early to get them involved in reading and establishing a love of books.
