Borders deal and holiday book-buying

Christmas is just six days away! If you’re looking for a last-minute gift for a loved one, friend or co-worker, don’t forget to think about buying books for the holidays.

And if you’re a Borders Rewards member, the chain has an awesome promotion running right now — 40% off the list price of any book, valid through Dec. 21. I’ve already grabbed more than a few titles for friends and family, but this is a great deal — especially for anyone in need of a hardcover. They have sales on movies and CDs, too, if you’re in that market. Head out and stock up before Sunday!

I keep wanting to list all of the awesome titles I got as Christmas gifts, but I realize that someone may inadvertantly stumble across my list and ruin the big day for me. I’ll do a post-holiday wrap-up of the awesome new books floating around my house next week.

Happy Friday!
