This is a fantastic video, albeit a little repetitive, but it’s a fantastic message. It’s unfortunate that some of the answers were a little awkward (such as “reaching for one after making love”…) but I loved Julie Andrew’s the best: they’re everybody’s favourite thing! I thought it was great to have a mixture of authors and other media personalities too.

On the note of “books = gifts”, the Buy Books for the Holidays campaign is still going strong. There are posts daily about different genres, ideas for gifts, and not just the popular titles that have been talked to death. Need help finding a title for something? Send an email to Buy Books for the Holiday and it will be posted on the blog — open for reader input and comments.
