Dear ones,

I thought you'd get some inspiration when making that list from what we have been selling in Oxford these days.

At number 5 IS EAT THIS NOT THAT : Restaurant Guide, my favorite pick for giving this year. This handsome book is a guide to healthful eating wherever you dine.

In at number 4 is BRYANT AND MAY ON THE LOOSE from that clever British author Christopher Fowler. The Peculiar Crimes Squad is no more, but eccentric and elderly Scotland Yard detectives Bryant and May don't know when to quit. You'll be charmed and very amused.

The number 3 book this week in Oxford is THE LINEUP essays by all your favorite mystery authors about their main characters.

THE MAN IN THE WOODEN HAT by Jane Gardem is our number 2 book this week. Love, childhood, home and exile in England's colonial past.

Finally at the top at number 1 is Easton's own Bill Shepard with THE SALADIN AFFAIR . Diplomat Robbie Cutler goes to Europe on his fourth adventure where he must defend the Secretary of State from terrorists and finds a fascinating antique desk with a secret document inside. We have signed copies.

Think of us as your own personal shopper this holiday season. We can advise you on that perfect gift for any age and order any in print book for you. Call us at 800-538-0042 to start making your life simpler. And don't forget our themed mystery book gift baskets starting at $25.00.

Hope you holidays are merry and bright.

Kathy, Tom, Sammi, Nick and Nora.
