John Grisham: '10 Reasons Why Books Make the Best Gifts'


In a letter to readers, author John Grisham suggested "10 reasons why books make the best gifts":
  1. Books are easier to wrap than footballs or fruit baskets.
  2. Books don't break.
  3. Once you finish with a book, it's not empty. In fact it's still full.
  4. No batteries or assembly needed.
  5. Books don't make annoying noises that alarm pets or grandparents.
  6. One size fits all.
  7. No ironing or washing or maintenance of any kind required.
  8. Books are non-perishable.
  9. There's a book for everyone, even Uncle Albert, who reads only post-modern detective westerns.
  10. Giving a book shows how well you know and how much you respect the recipient
