Today I stumbled upon a wonderful initiative by Canadian Bookshelf, the online repository for info about Canadian-authored books. It’s a Give Canadian matchmaking service for people looking for gift suggestions — write in to Canadian Bookshelf with your situation and they’ll give you expect advice on what books to buy.
In the first post, Marlene writes in seeking help in buying for her book-loving 18-month old nephew. You can read the reply on the Canadian Bookshelf blog!
I might have to write in about a few people on my list. I tend to ignore books that are completely out of my area of interest (such as most sci-fi) until I have to frantically find the perfect book for my bro.
