Bookmark's 2020 Christmas Gift Guide Here is our 2020 Christmas Gift Guide. It's 48 pages and includes over 450 books, games & puzzles and stationery items.
A customer favourite in this annual guide is our bookseller's picks. We get lots of positive feedback about these and requests for more so we have expanded this year's offering.
Bookmark’s booksellers are passionate book people and an eclectic group of readers with wide ranging interests. We collectively read hundreds of books a year, talk about hundreds and hundreds more within our community of readers and love to be asked the question, ‘What are you reading?’ For us, it is quite a thrill to share a favourite book and see others fall in love with it. We believe that these very human-to-human recommendations will beat a computer-to-human, algorithm-generated recommendation every time! So, we excited to share our 2020 list of favourite books as well as some of our perennial favourites. You can shop our catalogue staff picks and more here.
We hope you enjoy browsing the catalogue and we look forward to seeing you in-store. You can shop the catalogue online using the lsits below.
