Holiday Gift Guide

You have just a little more than a week to finish up your Christmas shopping.  The BWOBNY crew is here to help with last minute gift ideas for everyone on your list.

For the TV lover, Rebecca highly recommends "any of Nikki Stafford's TV guides.

Her titles include Finding Lost - 5 books on one of the most talked about and loved/hated shows of all time, 'Bite Me' about Buffy the Vampire Slayer, 'Once Bitten' on Angel, 'Uncovering Alias' a guide to, well, Alias, and a couple of other titles she edited that are a little harder to get your hands on that are compilations about Xena: Warrior Princess and Star Trek.

Plus, 'LOST Thought: Leading Thinkers Discuss Lost' just came out with one of her essays in it. Her guides are fantastic for new viewers and avid fans alike, with tidbits, questions, connections, and everything you never knew you wanted to know."

For Children and Children at Heart - Rachel suggests "Pete the Cat Saves Christmas" by Eric litwin and "Fancy Nancy Splendiferous Christmas" by Jane O'Connor for everyone between the ages one and one thousand.

She also reccommends "The Night Tree" by Eve Bunting which is "a beautiful picture book that was just introduced to me by one of my coworkers. It makes me feel giddy and christmasy and nostalgic."

Jess P. has a suggestion for new moms and dads needing sleep, "The No Cry Sleep Solution" by Elizabeth Pantley. Even though she and her husband are still struggling with this issue, it did help them figure out how to get Anastasia to sleep for a while.

I recommend my cousin Emily Neuburger's book, "Show Me a Story," for everyone.  While the book is designed for children, the storytelling concepts and projects are terrific for getting the creative juices flowing in adults too.  Everyone has some kind of story to tell. 

Happy Shopping!  Remember to support your local book stores whenever possible.
