Gift giving is not my love language. I find it difficult and stressful. And on the rare occasion when I think that I do have a good idea and I put a lot of resources into a gift, then it’s crushingly disappointing when it just doesn’t land. It makes me not want to try again.
And here we are, coming into another holiday season, and I’m looking at my list. #Stressful.
But all of this gave me an idea. Being such a book nut myself, I should be able to at least come up with a gift for other book lovers, right? And so, my idea for A Year of Books was born.
I recently began offering A Year of Books on my website.
When someone purchases A Year of Books, I will send the gift recipient one book per month all year! I can’t speak for everyone, of course, but I would love to get surprise books, in my genre, in my mailbox! (It would be awesome to find something other than bills in there.)
I confess, in the beginning I was only thinking about the gift giving facet of this, but once I got going, I also thought about how God might use this. I know a few people who would be blessed by a steady trickle of Christian stories in their lives, so I’m going to send them some!
If you’re interested in joining the party, please check out A Year of Books at robinmerrill.com. But you don’t need me for this, either! If you’re good at picking out books for other people, you could do it yourself. Let’s fill mailboxes everywhere with Christian love stories!
I’ll be partnering with other authors to pick out the books I’ll be shipping. If you have any recommendations for Christian romances that would be a good fit for this, please let me know in the comments.
And as we enter this gift giving season together, I hope you enjoy yourself and don’t experience any stress at all.
