Just the Right Book

It's like wine-of-the-month club, only it's for booklovers. And it's custom-made. And it has no age limit, and no state restrictions on shipping. So... it's better than wine-of-the-month club.

The Just the Right Book program, created by R.J. Julia Booksellers, is pure genius. The gift giver goes online, answers a series of questions (one of which is how many books they want to send in a year), and the booksellers choose a list of books they think will be appropriate for the gift recipient. The gift-ee, as it were, receives the books staggered throughout the year. It's the most no-hassle reading list you've ever been assigned, and it's personally tailored to each recipient! And, what is more (for some folks, anyway), you are supporting a local, independent bookstore in the process - even if it may not be local to you. Oh, the opportunities the internet affords us.

For more information, check out the Shelf Awareness article here. You can also read about the program (or start buying books as gifts) at the Just the Right Book website.
