Black Friday Book Shopping
For me, the whole post Thanksgiving shopping season is way too crazy making. The combination of over-stimulated senses, colors, crowds in the mall all make it too much for my brain to process. That's why the best place to go on Black Friday is to a bookstore, talk to some authors, get recommendations from the owner, and purchase the gift of reading for everyone on your gift list.

I'm going to be participating with three other authors at just such an event at Jacobsen's Books in downtown Hillsboro, Oregon.  I'm really looking forward to it.

Jacobsen's is one of those places packed floor to ceiling with books--used books, new books, gift books, chidren's and adult books, bookmarks, holiday cards, and lots more gift ideas. And if they don't have it on the shelf they will order for you!

So, wherever you are, consider spending some of your shopping time at your local bookstore. What better gift to give to your children, your siblings, your parents, and best friends than a great story. Below is a wonderful idea for a toddler. We are giving it to our grandson this year. What books are you considering for your gift list?
