Just the Right Book! is a wonderful service that provides book-of-the-month gifting options. Perhaps the best part of it is that the experts over there take information about the recipient’s tastes and choose books based on what they are most likely to enjoy. Kind of like a real live Pandora for book gifting. As a very picky, exacting reader, I was skeptical, but when I signed up for the service, I was shocked at how spot-on these folks’ choices were. Grandparents of the world, rejoice–they also hand-pick books for kids and teens.
Just the Right Book! would like to give away one copy of The Book That Changed My Life: 71 Remarkable Writers Celebrate the Books That Matter Most to Them by Roxanne Coady and Joy Johannessen.
An anthology that includes authors, journalists, and other published professionals, who have written about how their lives were affected by everything from The Little Engine that Could, to The Catcher in the Rye, to The Count of Monte Cristo. It’s a book that will pique your interest and entertain as you read through essays from notable authors like Amy Bloom, Carol Higgins Clark and Wally Lamb. You’re likely to discover a number of books that you’ll want to add to your own personal reading list!
Additionally, they’re also having a special for Mothering.com readers:
