Mark's Christmas Gift Recommendations


December 5, 2007
One of my favorite gifts to get is a book. To-date, I've read about 62 books this year. I decided to recommend a few of my favorites and/or notable books to you as Christmas gifts.

Just a note. There were tons of terrific books, but I thought I would recommend books in four different categories by people that I think wrote terrific books, but aren't necessarily brand names. I loved several of John Sandford's novels this year, as well as Robert Crais' "Watchman" and many others, but they don't need my recommendation, they've got the New York Times for that.

So here we go:

Mystery/Thriller
Written In Bone by Simon Beckett

Capitol Threat by William Bernhardt

Comic Crime
Trial & Error by Paul Levine

Some Like It Hot-Buttered by Jeffery Cohen

Science Fiction
Old Man's War by John Scalzi

Ragamuffin by Tobias S. Buckell

Children's
Skulduggery Pleasant by Derek Landy

Percy Jackson and the Curse of the Titans by Rick Riordan


I would also like to bring to your attention a couple books by writer friends:

The Hades Project by Joe Moore and Lynn Sholes

BrigaDoom by Susan Goodwill

Stealing the Dragon by Tim Maleeny

A Thousand Bones by PJ Parrish

I could undoubtedly go on and on, but these is a great place to start your shopping.

Cheers,
Mark Terry

Hey Mark, Those really are some great holiday gift ideas. I know it's all about expanding our minds and hearts and a good book or watching some good films help me do just that. This holiday season I decided to promote things that promote that holiday ambiance for the whole family to enjoy that's why I am working with this great company that put together this wonderful gift set. Do you remember the old classics like: RUDOLPH THE RED NOSE REINDEER, FROSTY THE SNOWMAN, OR SANTA’S COMING TO TOWN, just to name a few. Well, there’s a package of these movies and more holiday classics including a bonus music cd to start the holiday off right. You can order directly at http://www.christmasclassics.tv or find this special limited edition set any where dvds are sold. Happy Holiday fellow book readers!
