There are many reasons that books make great gifts, but we’re highlighting this one today: Portability.
Being able to take a book with you (whether it be a hardback, paperback, or e-book) is great for all those times during the average day when we are simply…sitting.
For instance, when you’re waiting for a train or bus, you could be reading. When you’re holding a table and waiting for the rest of your party at a restaurant, why not squeeze in an extra chapter or two? If you aren’t in the best of health and spend lots of time in and out of doctor’s offices and hospitals, books can literally help keep you sane while you deal with the stress of having the condition and the irritation of having to engaged in so much waiting.
So, the next time you’re looking for a gift for a work anniversary, Secret Santa exchange, or “just because” don’t underestimate the level of awesomeness that books have to offer!
