A gift from me to you

Thanksgiving is behind us, Advent wreaths are lit, and Christmas is around the corner. For many people that means shopping and selecting gifts. I myself am not doing much shopping this year, in large part because buying and sending a mere Christmas card from Chile costs about $3, and they only pay me about 20 cards a month.

That said, I would like to give you a book for Christmas. Technically a book recommendation because you are going to have to buy the book yourself or convince someone to buy it for you. Here’s the low-down: in the past fifteen months, I’ve read about 50 books, plus several others that I started, but decided weren’t for me. I will recommend one specifically for you that I think (hope!) you will like.

It’s easy. Email me the following:

  • Your name
  • Some information about the kind of books you like. Fiction? Non-fiction? Maybe the title of another book you liked. The less I know about you, the more you have to help me out here. If I know you well, you can take your chances and skip this step.

Plus, if I haven’t heard from you in awhile, let me know how you have been doing, what’s new, etc. But optional! If there’s too much to write, don’t let that deter you. Just ask for your book already. I make no guarantees that you’ll love the book, although I’ll tell you if I can’t come up with anything. Don’t be shy—send an email. Operators are standing by….
