Okay, dear readers, the countdown is on. There are four Mondays left between now and Christmas, and 2016 is a mere 38 days away.
It's go time, and by go we mean go to your nearest Dymocks store and get your Christmas gifts sorted before it's too late.
In all honesty, though, we know things can get hectic right before Christmas so we're taking the stress out of gift shopping. You can view our Christmas catalogue in full here, and we have a dedicated section for children's book recommendations broken down into age groups, which you can view here.
We've got a list of twenty gifts under $20 here, and over the next couple of weeks we'll be posting more gift guides for even the hardest to buy for of recipients. At Dymocks, we're trying to make Christmas just like an adult colouring book: as relaxing and stress-free as possible.
Our top ten best-selling books for the week ending Saturday 21 November were:
1. Old School (Diary of a Wimpy Kid Book 10) by Jeff Kinney
2. The Official Harry Potter Colouring Book
3. Everyday Super Food by Jamie Oliver
4. The Lake House by Kate Morton
5. The Red Queen (Obernewtyn Book 7) by Isobelle Carmody
6. The Dressmaker: Film Tie-In Edition by Rosalie Ham
7. Lost Ocean by Johanna Basford
8. Spirits of the Ghan by Judy Nunn
9. Fromelles & Pozieres: In the Trenches of Hell by Peter FitzSimons
10. Even Dogs in the Wild by Ian Rankin
It's been a big week in bookselling with a certain Wimpy Kid continuing to dominate our best-sellers list but not so much in the way of variety; in fact, nine of the ten books in this week's list were there last week, too. The newcomer is the prolific crime fiction author Ian Rankin with the twentieth instalment in the Inspector Rebus series, where Rebus is dragged out of retirement once more to consult on a case.
