Digital Christmas Presents

(We have a Facebook page – do come and “like” us and say hi)

Mmm, so it’s that time of year again. You know, when we tell you about the fabulousest books we’ve found this year and say – if you’re getting someone a Kindle or Kobo or Nook or some other kind of e-reader for Christmas, load it up with these. Or, why not get someone some fab ebooks for Christmas. Or even, if you know someone with a computer or smartphone and want to get them a wonderful, rewarding indie Christmas present that costs less than a glow stick and lasts ten times as long, consider these. It would, of course, be remiss not to start with our own pieces of wonderment. And we won’t repeat ourselves, so do also check out what we recommended last year. It’s as good now as it was then. Most links will go to the Amazon UK store, but fear not – the books are available elsewhere – just click the covers. And don’t worry, there will be an analogue equivalent of this post 🙂 To make this more fun there are no blurbs – suffice to say 1. the covers are so good they speak for themselves, and 2. everything here will appeal to anyone who loves what we do at eight cuts

    What wonderful company to find myself in.
    Thank you!!

  2. Hey, thank you. Some fantastic books there, what an honour to be included amongst them. Cheers.

  3. Thanks! Great to be listed – there’s some quality books you’ve suggested, and some among those I haven’t read that look great too, so I’ll be spending some money.

    And a general Christmas-y “huzzah” for Eight Cuts and all who sail in her.
