It’s the last first class posting date in the UK today, although there will still be some next-day delivery options in some online stores, but there are still five shopping days until Christmas so if you’re still stuck for gift ideas, pop along to your local independent bookshop for great advice.
I’ve also written a few children’s books (but suitable for adults too) selections over the last couple of months, and am listing them together here. These are mostly recently published books, so should be easily available. And if you’ve already done your Christmas shopping, why not bookmark the page for ideas to spend and book vouchers or money gifts? 🙂
