Gift Ideas for this Christmas: Trivia, Cooking, Romance, and Suspense

Wednesday, December 14th, 2011

Let us be your personal shoppers!

ABC’s booksellers don’t just sell books: as well as being voracious readers, almost everyone you’ll meet at the cash desk at ABC is personally responsible for buying the books for one or more sections in the store. That means you’ll always find someone who can put exactly the right book in your hands when you need it. We asked our buyers for their tips for the best gifts for Christmas, and they came up with some crackers: a sackful of ideas to suit every taste and budget. There are new books, classic books, magazines, games, puzzles, and even cuddly toys. Here are just a few of their ideas. Follow the links to find more ideas on:

Quick Picks for Consciousness

Thursday, December 9th, 2010

In case you missed the massive gift ideas post last week, here are five more best-selling tips for the holiday season courtesy of the Consciousness section:

Stairway to HeavenLorna Byrne
Lorna Byrne sees and talks with angels every day of her life and has done since she was a baby. As a child Lorna was told by the angels that her job on this earth was to share the wisdom and knowledge that God and the angels were giving her. When Lorna’s husband died, her world fell apart. In Stairways to Heaven she tells the story of how she pulled her life back together and how she, an uneducated mother of four, broke her silence and started to spread the angels’ message to the world. Lorna tells us of the future that God envisages for us – and some possible other futures, depending on the decisions we make. ‘Everyone must play their part’, she says.

The Power of Intention – Wayne Dyer
Wayne Dyer looks at the importance of intention in creating the reality of our experience. He explores how intent is not something that one does but is actually a field of energy that we are part of.

The Fifth Agreement – Don Miguel Ruiz
Since 1997, The Four Agreements has transformed the lives of millions of people around the world with a simple but profound message. Now bestselling author Don Miguel Ruiz and his son, Don Jose Ruiz, collaborate with this powerful sequel The Fifth Agreement. The Four Agreements provides the foundation for breaking thousands of agreements that create needless suffering and with The Fifth Agreement you recover all the power of your authenticity, which is who you really are when you are born.

Be Love Now: The Path of the Heart – Ram Dass
Shows us the way to unconditional spiritual love through personal anecdotes, deep insights, and stories. This title tracks the stages of the author’s own awakening, translating states of consciousness as he so ably does, starting with his days as Harvard psychologist and psychedelic in-venturer and continuing through his encounter with his guru.

A Course in Weight Loss – Marianne Williamson
For so many people, whether your addiction is to a substance or merely to a certain way of thinking or acting, a profound humbling occurs when you realise that your problem is bigger than you are. This book is for you if you know in your heart that you are an addict, and that you are powerless before your addictive behaviour.
