Have Yourself a Literary Christmas by Wendy H. Jones


As it's December I am definitely allowed to talk about Christmas this month. We all know the real meaning of Christmas, celebrating the birth of Christ, but, let's face it, Christmas is also about spending time with loved ones and for buying and unwrapping presents. I love receiving books for Christmas and I also love receiving journals. I equally enjoy giving them as presents. So, I thought I would not only talk about books in this blog but about literary gifts in general. These are just a selection of books, journals and gifts that caught my eye. Whilst I have read some of them, I haven't read them all. I just think they would make great gifts. The prices vary but I've tried to keep things under £15 as I know times are hard at present (definitely no pun intended). Some of them are from ACW authors, others are just random books I like the look of.

Hamlet Notebook by the Literary Gift Company

 Notes Notebook by Notes of London

 A Room Of One's Own Notebook by the Literary Gift Company

 Jane Austen Heat Transfiguration Mug 

These are literally just ideas from the top of my head. I have no skin in the game and receive nothing if you buy any of them, apart from the deadly traditions book of course where I and all the other authors share the royalties. I merely thought it would be fun to see what literary gifts were available. Now, what I would like  you to do is join in and post your recommendations in the comments below. These can be your own or others books. Then, we can all have fun choosing from them and supporting authors and reading fro Christmas. 

Have a fabulous Christmas when it comes and I hope all your presents are literary.
