Where To Get Free Books for Gifts

I always say that books are the best gifts. It's a great way to relax, learn, escape and make a new friend in a favorite character. If you're on a budget where can you find the best bargains for books for the holidays, birthdays or whatever?


Book Giveaways This is a great time of year for getting free books. Book bloggers are doing themed giveaways to get rid of books they've accumulated all year. Kristi's Book Nook saves up books from reviews and donates them to kids in need for the holidays.  It's a great idea to participate in some awesome giveaway hops. Kristi's Book Nook does book giveaways weekly, so you'll want to stop by to see what cool books are there.

Cybils Awards Mission The Cybils Awards aims to recognize the children’s and young adult authors and illustrators whose books combine the highest literary merit and popular appeal. If some la-di-dah awards can be compared to brussels sprouts, and other, more populist ones to gummy bears, we’re thinking more like organic chicken nuggets. We’re yummy and nutritious.
