For the last two years, I've been taking part in the Wednesday Weekly Blogging Challenge over at Long and Short Reviews. The first link will take you to the list of topics; the second one goes to the homepage, where you find a post with everyone's responses each week. Feel free to join in!
Today's prompt is "best non-book gifts for readers" which ought to be interesting.
My list is, of course, perfectly reasonable:
Books. No, wait, can't use that one.
- Bookshelves. There are never enough of these.
- Bookends, preferably shaped like gargoyles. There are never enough of these, either.
- Childcare/baby sitting. Gives the reader more time to read. Or write, for that matter.
- Possibly a maid or maidservice, to dust the bookshelves. Surprising how often this comes up, actually.
- Some sort of time-travel device, so that when they finish a book at four in the morning they can still go back and get a decent night's sleep. Note to readers: just make sure not to pester yourself about how the book turns out while you're trying to sleep after you've finished it.
- A butler or someone similar, to make sure the reader remembers to eat.
As you can see, there are plenty of viable non-book gifts that you can give to the reader in your life. Show your love by making it easier for them to read!
