One stop shopping DECEMBER 2020

Here are books to delight everyone on your list

There’s no better escape than reading, and bookstores are the departure gates of 2020

Books are the perfect gift, because they can instantly transport us to other places and times, even when we can’t travel there in person. I’m donning my author hat for a moment, to give you my list of great books your giftees probably haven’t read yet—from historical fiction to sci fi—knowing that one of them will be perfect for every person on your list (and your shopping will be DONE!)

Give the gift of togetherness!

I bet everyone on your list is someone you wish you could spend more time with. How about giving everybody the same book this year, then inviting them to come together online to talk about it in January?

(If you’ve never done a book zoom, it’s super easy! Step-by-step how-to’s are on The Last Tea Bowl Thief website—you don’t have to choose my book to host a bookish get-together, but if you do, there are gifts, giveaways and more entertaining Last Tea Bowl Thief-inspired activities there too!)

If you choose The Last Tea Bowl Thief for someone on your list, make it extra special by giving them a signed copy

If you give The Last Tea Bowl Thief to one of your nearest and dearest, I’ll give you a free signed & inscribed bookplate to put in the front. Here’s where to send your mailing address and the name of the person you’re gifting:
