I'm a huge fan of GoneReading, a wonderful website that features gifts for readers. On a philanthropic mission, GoneReading donates 100% of their after-tax profits to reading-related charities, and they recently funded a children’s library in Ethiopia, the Gebeta Community Children’s Library.
Thinking about starting my holiday shopping, I browsed through the newly expanded GoneReading site, and found some very cool items for readers. They have book shaped plates and platters that would be perfect for snacks served at book club meetings--or book blogger conventions--or simply as gifts for a favorite reader or two.
GoneReading's floating book shelf caught my eye. Stacked books appear to float in space, striking and surreal.
GoneReading also has a best-selling board game for readers called, “It was a Dark & Stormy Night". To play this game of "first lines", participants listen to the opening line or two of a book, then try to identify its title or author. (Do you know the origin of "It was a dark and stormy night"? I had to visit Wikipedia to refresh my memory.) This game would be a lot of fun to play at gatherings with other book lovers. GoneReading also has a terrific trivia game for the legion of "P. & P." fans.
Thanks for reading! Comments welcomed.
