Giving Books As Gifts

December 23, 2009

Blue Book With BowBirthdays, Christmas, Mother's Day, etc. All of our charity thrift shops sell used books, for children and adults, usually priced at $.50 for paperbacks and $1.00 for hardcovers. Our library does, too. Sometimes these places have "sales" and you can pick up ten kids' books for $1.00.


A gift bag of books in nice condition, hand-selected by you based on the receiver's interests, makes a wonderful, personal present at a very low cost. Plus you're supporting the charity or library at the same time. And you avoid the crowds at the mall! :)

Books can be a wonderful, inexpensive gift or activity for a child. This is my two year old son Evan, looking at one of his favorites. It cost me all of a dollar at our local dollar store, and I can't tell you how many times he's "read" it!

Save postage on gifts that go long distance by giving gifts that qualify for media postage, which is much less than regular parcel post. Media postage can be used for DVDs, CDs, books, tapes, or movies, any information that doesn't contain advertisements can usually go media rate.
