In my last post I talked about supporting independent bookshops by ordering online through hive.co.uk. It may seem like this post contradicts that one BUT stay with me.
I love to gift (and to receive) signed books. Being housebound, I have to source signed books online – I actually did a whole post about it here back in August. Finding signed editions can make it a bit harder to support independent retailers so sometimes, for these special editions, I have to branch out a bit.
I thought today I’d share with you some signed books available online right now that I think would make fab Christmas presents.
Since I’ve been talking about Hive, let’s start with them. They have a whole section of signed books here but I’m just going to pick out a couple of highlights that might make great gifts for friends and family.
Foyles have a large selection of signed copies here.
Signed copies of Doodle a Day by Chris Riddell
Signed limited edition of Man Booker Prize Winner A Brief History of Seven Killings
You can find the signed copies from Waterstones here.
Canongate have some signed & special editions on their website (here). Plus if you order before Sunday 29th November they will handpick one of their Canons and send it to you free of charge. You can find all the details here.
Signed edition of Matt Haig’s Reasons To Stay Alive < I read it recently & definitely recommend it
Signed copies of A Tale For The Time Being by Ruth Ozeki
Forbidden Planet have a lot of signed editions, including Sarah J Maas! Full list here.
Copies of The Sleeper and the Spindle (it’s stunning) signed by Neil Gaiman!
Signed hardback copies of Starborn by Lucy Hounsom
Goldsboro Books specialise in signed, limited and rare editions so you could be browsing their site for a while.
Finally, Transreal Fiction still have some signed copies of V.E. Schwab’s books.
I could go on, but hopefully this post has given you some ideas for Christmas gifts. My advice is to snap up any signed copies you want quickly as they can often sell out. Also, check back on these websites regularly as they are always adding more stock.
EDIT – I just noticed that The Book People have a signed copies section now too.
