Buying More Books, Fewer Gadgets This Year

WCCO has released the results of The annual University of St. Thomas holiday shopping survey.  According to the study by the University of St. Thomas, Minnesotans will be giving more books as gifts this year and fewer electronic gadgets.

It should come as good news to owners of area book stores. Shoppers said they’ll be giving more books this holiday season, as well as clothing, gift certificates and gifts of cash.

What’s not expected to be flying off store shelves will be consumer electronics, computers, jewelry and video games.

Books make great gifts.  Used books allow to stretch your dollars even further.  Monkey See, Monkey Read sells most of our used books for half the cover price. Used paperbacks start at $3.00.monkey-read-2
