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.
