I don’t know about you, but one of the best gifts I can receive is that of a book (or a gift card to buy myself a book), plus the time to read it. This year for Mother’s Day, why not give the Momma in your life (or yourself, because we all know you deserve it), a new read. I asked some of my favourite publishers to help you out by sharing their top picks for Mom this May.
Oh, and if you’re the husband, grab the kids and scram. And don’t forget to draw Mom a bubble bath on your way out. This is HER day.
