A book is the best gift!

A book is the best gift!

“Books are the quietest and most constant of friends; they are the most accessible and wisest of counsellors, and the most patient of teachers.”

– Charles W. Eliot

Do you know that a book is the best gift? Why? The book is beyond time and fashion. It always filled with fresh ideas and interesting thoughts. A book is a great way to demonstrate your attitude to a person. This is not just a sign of attention, but a wonderful opportunity to show what you know about the interests, tastes and desires of the person to whom the gift is intended.

A gift book can be an ideal travel companion. It will cheer up, make you think, help to set priorities or just pass the time between flights in anticipation of landing. And it does not need an outlet or batteries, like a smartphone or laptop.

Have you read a book published the year you were born? You can always find a book published in the year of the birth of your friend or relative. It will be a truly magnificent and unforgettable gift.
