December Gift Guides: Books for the Whole Family


December Gift Guides: Books for the Whole Family

by Zaide Bishop

Here are my suggestions for gift books:

My book of the year that I want to gift to everyone is The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F** by Mark Manson. There is literally no one you cannot give that to. Okay, maybe not your grandma but everyone else is yes.


For someone who has been decimated by 2016 as we all have been, the new Barefoot Investor by Scott Pape.


For teenagers, Teens Cook: How To Cook What You Want To Eat by Megan, Judy & Jill Carle.


Also for teenagers: Zeroes by Scott Westerfeld and Margo Lanagan & Deborah Biancotti.


For middle-grades, Acquisition and its sequel Duplicity by Talitha Kaligo.

 I’d also like to recommend buying these books from Dymocks in Chermside, QLD. They have a Facebook page!

25823For readers who like a little rock ‘n roll (in all senses of that word, we strongly recommend Zaide’s short story as part of the Secret Confessions: Backstage series, which is available in a box set!
