Day Six: Gifts for Bookbugs
Christmas is a time to buy books for loved ones that they would never dream of getting for themselves. You know, real showstoppers of a page turner. Whether they’re designed to make the reader laugh, or to provide that particular type of relaxation that can only be found in those few short days between Boxing Day and Hogmanay, we have lots of books in stock for all ages.
One of our faves for kids is this beautiful buy, The 12 Days o Yule. A stunningly illustrated Scots version of the traditional Christmas rhyme, retold by Susan Rennie and illustrated by Matthew Land. Journey through the twelve days of Yuletide with a cast of skaters skooshin, lassies birlin, sheep a-shooglin and the all-important five gowden rings. Perfect for young Scots living here or abroad, this book will come out each and every Christmas throughout childhood and beyond.
Perhaps you’re looking for a more philosophical present? Some wise words from a great thinker to stir the soul for the beginning of a New Year? Look no further than this simply spectacular Pocket Kanye Wisdom (£5.99). With topics including religion and art, love, fashion, money and, of course, himself, there’s advice for just about every situation.
Our book stock keeps changing almost daily as the people of Barnton and Blackhall are the biggest book worms, so new stock comes in to replace the old. Be quick to make sure you grab a gem!
Speaking of gems, look out for our jewellery feature in our Twelve Days of Christmas Shopping feature next week!
