Maybe you are looking for gifts for the word nerd in your life. Here’s a couple of tidbits:
It Was a Dark and Stormy Night: The Game for People Who Love to Read. It’s a board game something like Trivial Pursuit, although to be perfectly honest, so far Mister MRP and I have only used the cards to quiz each other on our knowledge of first lines, not so much to play the actual game. Topics range from poetry to children’s books to novels (with science fiction, Shakespeare, and some other stuff in between).
Or check out The Word for Jan Freeman’s suggestions here and here about great books that will delight the above-mentioned word nerd in your life (or you, if you happen to be the word nerd in your life).
