12 Gifts of Christmas for Book Lovers – Day 8

What if you have to shop for that tough-to-buy-for book lover?  Do you get  them a book?  What if they have it already?  Or, worse, what if they don’t like it?  I once gave someone a book I thought they would like because it was listed under the “customers also bought” section of Amazon.  Well… let me tell you… the recipient opened the book, stared at it, stared at me, didn’t even crack it open or read the blurb and asked for the receipt to return it.  I’ll never forget the look on their face and I never want any of you to experience that.  So what do you do?  Easy, give them something literary related!  And so, I present to you, Santa’s 12 Gifts of Christmas Bookworm Style.

On the eighth day of Christmas Santa gave to me…

Livescribe smartpen!  Okay, this gift might be more for writers than readers, but it’s still pretty darn cool.  And if you’re old skool, don’t like typing, or shun computers then this is a great gift!  Whatever you write using the smartpen automatically uploads to a smartphone or tablet.  The catch… right now it’s only compatible with apple products.  Bit of a bummer, but still a good gift for your apple friends.
