As we move into the festive season BooksfromScotland is here with a bumper newsletter bursting with recommendations for books to give your loved ones this Christmas. Whether the books lovers in your life are fans of fiction, biography, travel, picture books, art, food, poetry, or any subject you can think of, we're sure you'll find the ideal gift here!
Wait, there's more . . .

  • Enjoy a selection of Magi Gibson's poetry from her latest collection I Like Your Hat

  • Read an extract from the comic science fiction novel, Space Team, by Barry Hutchison

  • Read an extract from the futuristic thriller, Rescue Code by Paolo Antonio Magrì
And finally . . .
It's that time of year again, when BookfromScotland's Vikki Reilly joins Alistair Braidwood on his ScotsWhayHae! podcast to talk about the year in books.

We talked favourite books, genre highlights, pandemic stars and a whole lot more. In fact, there was so much to talk about, we had to cover it all in two podcasts!

You can listen to Part 1 here.
You can listen to Part 2 here.
We hope our book recommendations give you everything you need as we head into the festive season. As ever, keep your eye on BooksfromScotland's Twitter, Facebook and Instagram feeds where we will continue to promote the best in Scottish writing, and we'll be back soon with more book recommendations.

In the meantime, take care, stay safe and keep reading!

Best wishes,

Vikki Reilly
