It’s always a great time to escape deep into the world of books.
Whether a marvellous tale of magic and mythology, or a sweet and sassy contemporary romance like The Holiday Matchor The Boyfriend Countdown by Bolton author Tori Samuels, there’s power in those pages that can whisk us away.
In fact, it can be a wonderful stress-reducer to press pause on the flickering screens for a while and engage with the pages of a really good book. Devouring the words that spill from those pages can entertain you, enlighten you, add to your knowledge base, improve your memory, motivate and inspire you, and, yes, reduce your stress.
This season the New Releases table is graced with great hardcovers like Chris Hadfield’s The Defector, Neil DeGrasse Tyson’s To Infinity and Beyond, Ken Follett’s The Armor of Light, Stephen King’s Holly and Henry Winkler’s Being Henry: The Fonz…and Beyond.
Do you or someone on your gift list just love to cook? There are cookbooks by chefs like Jamie Oliver, Michael Smith and Lidia Bastianich. On the topic of food, how about Peace by Chocolate?
