Ask Santa Dot Com

What do you buy the book lover who has everything, including all the books they can read for several lifetimes? Litkicks provides a holiday shopping guide full of highly desirable stuff.

If anyone wants to know what's on my list for Santa, I think these invisible bookshelves are pretty cool :


and how about this clock?

Now know of any great gifts for writers? Ginny Wiehart on about.com has some suggestions. (Though most of the scribblers I know are probably lusting for yet another Moleskine.)

We had a travel scrabble set when we were kids. The pieces all had "legs" that would stick in the holes on the board to keep from falling off. I think the set might be with my sister.

I mentioned it because it's one of the gifts mentioned in the Litkicks link. Except now it's called Scrabble Game Folio.

just about the best gift you can give a writer is to buy lots of his books.

This site has some good library/book gift ideas also.

I really love the invisible bookshelf- levitating books at my disposable is quite the thing, I think.

More book darts!

They're a bit too expensive here and I haven't gotten round to exploring other options yet.

thanks Mary!

synical - maybe someone will be inspired to make something here along the same lines ...

Page Points from Levenger is one of their better products. But shipping from them is always as much as the item itself!

I'm fairly sure that can be made locally if there's enough demand. Anyone ? :)
