I’m a huge fan of my Kindle, well actually of my Kindle app on my phone. I used to be devoted to the Kindle itself, but over the years have got accustomed to reading off my phone (although maybe this year I will ask for a new Kindle, like the Kindle Paperwhite), but as I’ve said before, I’m not a fan of gift certificates (I find them impersonal).
Much to my delight, however, I’ve discovered that people can send me Kindle books via email as a gift, meaning my Christmas list has just got a whole lot longer!
As I suggested last week, box sets and omnibus editions of books make a great gift, and to celebrate Cyber Monday, why not buy these gifts digitally?
For example, I’m a mystery fan and given how quickly this type of book reads and given how many books may appear in a series, buying an omnibus edition of several in the series just makes sense. My most recent purchase was the first four books in the Agatha Raisin series by British mystery writer M.C. Beaton (the character, I’ve just discovered, also appears in a TV series for those who prefer to watch mysteries).
Here are some other popular Kindle omnibus editions that the voracious reader on your gift list might enjoy:
- James Herriot’s All Creatures Great and Small
- Alice Walker’s The Color Purple Collection
- Virginia Hamilton’s The Justice Trilogy
- Suzanne Collins’ The Hunger Games Trilogy
- J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter Collection
- Jim Butcher’s Dresden Files: Books 1-6 and Dresden Files: Books 7-12
