Hard Sell

You know what would be an excellent Christmas* gift for the science nut/space fan/history buff/pop culture maven/comic book collector/nostalgic baby boomer/geek/nerd/evil genius/dashing hero/super-cool person in your life?

My book.

I'm just sayin'.




* Also appropriate for Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, Boxing Day, Al Hijra, Ashura, Las Posadas, the Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe, Santa Lucia Day, Oatmeal Muffin Day (Dec. 19), or National Chocolate-Covered Anything Day (Dec. 16) (latter two only valid if book is accompanied by an oatmeal muffin or covered in chocolate, respectively).

Don't forget BIRTHDAYS (which is what Husband got his copy for).

Plus, why not "But WAIT - THERE'S MORE"? Buy an extra copy just in case your first one gets covered in chocolate. Or anything.

Plus, buy one to donate to your local school library. Kids who don't know history are doomed to repeat it.

And we don't want that to happen.

Srsly.

Thanks! I agree--it's always good to have an extra copy on hand to give to Dad or cover in chocolate.
