Paper Gains: A Guide to Gifting Children Great Books (free ebook)

My friend, Anne, from Modern Mrs. Darcy emailed me yesterday and said:

I wanted to give you a heads-up on a completely free (no strings attached) resource I released today. It’s called Paper Gains: A Guide to Gifting Children Great Books from Modern Mrs Darcy, and it’s a 25-page guide to help adult book-lovers choose great books to give to the young people in their lives this Christmas.

The guide is aimed at people who like to read and love the idea of helping young ones (babies through teens) discover that love for themselves by building their libraries. The guide contains recommendations–with approximate age guidelines–across 8 categories (3 are: Series Kids Love–and Their Parents Do, Too; Books for Young Creatives; and Delightfully Silly Books).

“Paper gains” is from an investment phrase: “paper gains, paper losses.” What that means is you haven’t really won or lost anything until you’ve cashed out your investment. This guide is called “paper gains” because you can’t lose with the books in this guide.

I’m really excited about this free ebook! It has some new-to-me book suggestions in it and I can’t wait to let Kathrynne look the list over thoroughly with me to see which ones she’s most interested in.

    We stopped asking for books and giving books because we find it a waste of good money. The public library is free and has the largest catalog of books for free. And if they don’t have a book, they can often order it. I felt awful as I cleaned out my children’s books and opened the front covers to see they were signed by relatives and friends. Kids grow out of books and if you try to keep your house organized, holding onto books that they’ve outgrown does not help to keep your space organized.

      I think books *can* be a great investment in certain instances, but I’m also a big advocate of using the library. Oh how much money the library has saved us over the years!
