It's the run up to Christmas, and
BooksfromScotland is full-to-bursting with recommendations for book gifts for every kind of reader. From fiction, poetry and memoir to humour, cookery and art, we hope you find something you'd like to put under the tree for a special someone.
Our Booksellers Recommend
It's not only BooksfromScotland you can rely on for great book recommendations.
Our marvellous booksellers do it every day across the country. We asked a few of them what they'll be recommending to their customers this Christmas.
Andy Howard is gaining fans everywhere for his beautiful nature photography found in his two books
The Secret Life of the Mountain Hare and
The Secret Life of The Cairngorms. We spoke to him about his career so far.
The Secret Life of Tartan is a beautiful and fascinating
history of Scotland's iconic cloth.
Within its pages, Vixy Rae speaks to many people involved in the tartan industry, including historian Peter MacDonald.
John Rain is a Bond superfan, starting a podcast to celebrate his love for all things 007. He has now written a
book on the film franchise, and we caught up with him to discuss his favourite Bond moments.
Catch up with the rest of the Feeling Festive Issue
I've been taking part in Alistair Braidwood's Scots Whay Hae! Best of Books Podcast for the last three years and it's always great fun to chat with him about the year in books. I hope you enjoy our overview of 2019, which includes loads of titles that have featured in BooksfromScotland over the year.
