Gifts for Readers by Lynn Viehl
This week I’ve been out shopping for gifts for the readers among my friends and family. Of course the very best gift you can give a reader is a gift card to their favorite book store. But if you want something fun to go along with the gift card, here are some neat things I found at Barnes & Noble and Books-a-Million:
BAM’s 2013 Page-A-Day Book Lover’s Calendar: this page-a-day desk calendar features over $100.00 in coupons to use throughout the year, and it’s currently free with the purchase of any two other calendars.
2013 Provence & Tuscany Spiral Desk Planner by Ziga Media: If you’re going to use a desk planner, why not pick one with gorgeous scenes from two of the most beautiful places on the planet? This one is $14.99 at B&N.
Bright’s Bookmarker Pen Set: I love these pens because they’re flat and have a clip on them that holds them to whatever page you were reading or working on. A set of seven is $4.95 at B&N.
Fabrica BookBand: Remember fanny packs? This is one that fits around your notebook, paperback, hardcover, e-reader or iPad. The stretchy elastic band has a zippered pouch in which you can store your smart phone, pens, pencils, clips, coins, keys or your other small bits; $7.99 at BAM.
Little Book Holder: I love this little clippy guy; he marks your place and holds open the pages for you (he also looks very cute holding a gift card) and he’s $3.99 at BAM.
Little Box of Peace by Magnetic Poetry: I’m a big believer in magnetic poetry, and this little set has 72 peace-themed words for your reader to play with on their fridge or other metal surface; $5.99 at BAM.
Predict a Pen: What happens when you cross a crystal ball with a writing instrument? You get the Predict a Pen, which promises an answer for everything — for entertainment purposes only; $7.99 at BAM.
Stained Glass Journal: Peter Pauper Press’s blank journals are beautifully crafted, have stunning covers and turn journaling into a work of art. This one caught my eye because it has a gorgeous peacock design in jewel-tone colors, and is $14.99 at B&N.
Tote with Erasmus & Lincoln Quotes: This is my favorite canvas tote from B&N’s collection. It’s big, roomy, and has inspiring quotes from Erasmus and President Lincoln on each side; 16.95 at B&N.
Since I know all of you are avid readers, I have signed copies of my Lords of the Darkyn novels Nightborn and Nightbred packed along with everything I’ve listed in this post to give away. If you’d like a chance to win the tote with my books and all these neat things, in comments name something you think is a great gift for a reader. This giveaway is international, too, so everyone on the planet is welcome to join in.
Readers, that’s all you have to do today to enter. 🙂 Easy contest!
