Giving someone a new idea or perspective is a perfect gift. So is the gift of laughter or even a good cry. When you give someone a book, you give someone any and all of those thoughts and emotions.
Most books are now published electronically as well as in traditional paper form and these e-books may be given as gifts as well.Click here for directions on sending an Amazon (Kindle) e-book. All you need is an email address—and an account with Amazon, of course. You can even set the date on which the e-book will be delivered.
While I enjoy e-books (and the shelf space that they save) a personalized book makes a good gift even better.
I have copies of each listing in my catalog and would be happy to make sure that you or your “gift-givee” receives the message you desire. I only have two copies left of Boots Poffenberger: Hurler, Hero, Hell-Raiser, however, so if you may want to act quickly to read the life of the man who was, for a time, baseball’s most colorful character.
If you enjoy local baseball, then look into Safe at Home: A Season in the Valley, and join me as I spend a year with the New Market Rebels of the Valley League.
For those of you who like to ponder, consider Fathers, Sons, & Holy Ghosts: Baseball as a Spiritual Experience. There’s a reason that baseball people are so passionate about their sport.
If you need a quick read while you’re on the go, then purchase a copy of Time Is A Pool, a ten-story collection of flash fiction.
I know that many of you enjoy learning about World War II as much as I do, in which case, I invite you to purchase The Secret of Their Midnight Tears, a fictional look at what it meant to come of age even as the world descended into chaos.
Thank you, and good luck shopping!
