Getting Ready for Christmas

Now is the time to start thinking about all those people who look forward to getting  a book for Christmas. I know I always love to give children a selection of books so they can have some quiet time when the mad rush of excitement over the new toys has become a bit too much. Give their eyes a rest from the xbox or playstation and encourage them into a world of wonder,  of adventure,  of magic or just pure fun. The old favourites of Roald Dahl ,  J.K.Rowling and Enid Blyton never go out of fashion.There’s a new Wimpy Kid book  out for this Christmas too.  And how about a few jokes on Christmas morning, can you really refuse to laugh when you get woken up at 6am with a    ‘ knock knock who’s there ‘……

For the adults there are so many great autobiographies and non fiction books which are published to coincide with this time of year –   Gay Byrne,  Tony Ryan ( of Ryanair )  Alex Ferguson,  D.J.Carey,  John Bishop to name but a few.

So visit your local book shop where there will be lots of choice and someone there to help you pick the right book.
