Books are always great stocking stuffers. And, if you have a Kindle or iPad, or are thinking of giving one as a gift, you can load them up with ebooks. Here’s my holiday book and ebook shopping guide of delights written by the authors I follow. There is a little something for everyone on this list that is sure to please.

Pentecost by Joanna Penn

Lottery Ticket by Tony Eldridge
(Also look for another of his books, The Sampson Effect, which is slated to be a movie soon.)
Seventeen year old Jason Breezey lost his mother when he was eight. Now, he loses his father just months before graduating high school. But unknown to him, his father may have purchased the winning ticket to the largest undivided jackpot in lottery history just days before his death.
Sarabande by Malcolm Campbell
(Also look for another of his books, The Sun Singer)
After her sister, Dryad haunts her from beyond the grave for three long and torturous years, Sarabande undertakes a dangerous journey into the past to either raise her cruel sister from the dead, ending the torment…or to take her place in the safe darkness of the earth.
The Flight of Orville Wright CaterPillar by Donna Perugini
Orville Wright Caterpillar has always wanted to fly, but his friends only laugh at his dream. Orville is a ‘visionary’ that ‘dreams big and steps forward!’ How does he put ‘wings to his dreams’? Orville surrounds himself with flight gear, maps and books on flying. He’s ready to put his dream into action but there’s still one big question. How do you give the dream in your heart ‘wings’? A faith-filled Christian book, first of three books in the “Orville Series”.
Deadly Straits by R.E. McDermott
In the tradition of Tom Clancy, Clive Cussler, Vince Flynn, Brad Thor, and W.E.B. Griffin, R.E. McDermott delivers a thriller to rival the masters. When marine engineer and very part-time spook Tom Dugan becomes collateral damage in the War on Terror, he’s not about to take it lying down. Falsely implicated in a hijacking, he’s offered a chance to clear himself by helping the CIA snare their real prey, Dugan’s best friend, London ship owner Alex Kairouz.
Stairway of the Gods by Vic Warren
A riveting tale of romance and adventure that takes readers on a magical journey to the Philippines and the heartland of its people in the Cordillera Mountains. Warren’s tale of skullduggery unfolds on the slopes of the Banaue rice terraces when Paul and Joan Webster are trapped in the village after an earthquake. Paul is hospitalized and Joan is left alone to protect one of the most important discoveries of the twentieth century—a booty of gold and priceless relics were once considered to be only legendary hidden in a cave during World War II—that some would kill for.
Mrs. Pennybutton – Teacher of Souls by Dana Ross Martin
We’re all born here on Earth. We grow up, do the things we’re told to do, accomplish a few feats here and there, then make the transition back from where we came. Rarely, however, do we remember what we were taught before our birth. That’s the very stuff Mrs. Pennybutton teaches in her class, the same information she communicates to ALL of us before we’re born.
Some of the following books can also be found on the BlogAid Resources page.
I’m extremely picky about what I endorse. I’ve read these books and some are
so dog-eared that I’m ready to get the ebook version! Some are also affiliate links
and I’m proud to be associated with the creators of these helpful materials.
