NOT YOUR USUAL SUSPECTS

A group blog featuring an international array of killer mystery, suspense, and romantic suspense writers. With premises and story lines different from your run-of-the-mill whodunits, we tend to write outside the box. We blog several times a week on all topics relating to romantic suspense and mystery, our writing, and our readers. We welcome all comments and often have guest bloggers. All our authors can be contacted separately, too, using their own social media links.

We find our genre delightfully, dangerously, and deliciously exciting - join us here, if you do too!

Gifts for Readers

The holidays are already in full swing at my house. Since we celebrate both Hanukkah and Christmas, we started decorating and buying gifts weeks ago. But never fear. You still have plenty of time left.

Since we're all consumers here, ones who read, I thought I'd run down some of this year's best gifts for literature lovers!

The Book Clock - Put it in a spot far from your comfy reading chair so you don't realize just how much time you've spent indulging in your favorite pass time!


Personal Library Kit - For those who love to loan books out -- and to get them back!


Kindle Paperwhite - one of the ebook readers I'm lusing over. The other is the Kindle Fire.



Game of Thrones Book Collection - For my fellow GoT fans, the four-book bundle.

Front-Connect Reading Glasses - I admit it -- I'm at that age where I need them and I am forever hunting down one of the half dozen pairs I keep around the house. Better to keep them around my neck!

LED Book Light - Say you want to read in bed, but your partner wants to sleep. Voila! Now you can both get what you want!

Bed Rest Reading Pillow - Along the same lines as the book light, only better!

Nook HD - another ebook reader I'd love to own.

Floating Book Shelf - An inexpensive way to display your books.

What about you? Are there any items aimed at readers on your list this year?

Great list! It's 5 degrees at the moment and I'm wishing I had my hobo (fingerless) gloves. I was thinking that was more of a writerly gift, but then I remembered how cold my fingers get while reading in bed. Something about holding my hands up, I guess? Anyway, love the list!

Now I never would have thought of that, Anne Marie, since I live in Florida and it's 85 today!

I have my gloves, Anne Marie!
Great list, Wynter. Also journals. I love journals!

Wynter Daniels said...

Journal - great idea, Toni. Thanks.

Elise Warner said...

Wow. You've really got the spirit. I shall look into the LED light. Thanks.

Wynter Daniels said...

Me too. I love that it comes in pink!

Marcelle Dubé said...

Great list, Wynter -- I love the personal library kit!

Wynter Daniels said...

Wish I'd had that library kit years ago!

I love these ideas! I'm putting the personal library kit on my list!
