It’s awfully daunting, standing in the hustle and bustle of a huge bookstore during the holidays and trying to find one book among millions for the bibliophile or budding reader in your life. Luckily, there’s a fabulous new service to help you choose just the right book– not surprisingly, it’s called Just the Right Book.
[don't miss a literary giveaway after the jump!]
This amazing service is the brainchild of the fine folks at
Connecticut’s award-winning R.J. Julia Bookstores. You select the age of your lucky
recipient, then answer some basic questions, even if all you know is that your niece
loves Twilight or your toddler nephew loves trains.
Then, using twenty years of bookish matchmaking, Just the Right Book hand selects books and
ships them directly to your recipient, whether it’s a one-time packages
or gifts that keep on giving all year.
My 4 year-old daughter is a tricky pick, as
she loves Transformers as much as ballet. But the Small Kids Collection
(5 books + 1 toy) we recieved was phenomenal.
We have strong girl characters, dreaming and dancing dinosaurs,
creative and free-thinking princesses, and a poetry anthology for a
first taste of e.e. cummings. They even included a new book by one of
our favorite authors, Tad Hill. All that, wrapped up in a pretty box
with a huge bow and a glittery stuffed lizard.
I’m the kid’s mom and a reading nut, and I honestly couldn’t have chosen better myself.
This is definitely a gifty service; not the way to find the cheapest price on the latest Diego-themed comic series. If you’re looking for the care and creativity of an indie expert with
the convenience of an online shop– plus a mega-dose of mind reading–
this is the best gift I can possibly imagine. Getting a book a month
would have been my top present ever when I was… well, any age at all.
Visit Just the Right Book
and let the mind-reading book experts choose just the right books for
the bibliophiles in your life in time for the holidays. They will totally thank you.
Congratulations to Kay, Penny, and Jen, who each won a copy of The Book That Changed My Life!
