Last Minute Gift Ideas: ABC The Hague

This time of the holiday season can be a bit tricky for us. We’ve stocked up on lots of titles, but happily they are also flying off the shelves.  Still, sometimes a title is sold out, and, trust me on this one, folks, it will not be coming in before Sunday!  So I took a quick trip around ABC The Hague and took pictures of those titles we still have piles of – as possible inspiration for you in case the title you wished for has been snatched away by other avid readers already.  Or simply as possible inspiration, period.  🙂

All the books in the Inheritance Cycle by Christopher Paolini: Eragon, Brisingr, Eldest, and Inheritance.

The Philosophy Book: Big Ideas Simply Explained.

The Conqueror series, about Genghis Khan, by Conn Iggulden: Wolf of the Plains, Lords of the Bow, Empire of Silver, and Conqueror.

Moonwalking with Einstein by Joshua Foer and Thinking, Fast and Slow by Daniel Kahneman.  Warning: these two titles are literally flying off the shelves!

New York Fashion Week: The Designers, the Models, the Fashions of the Bryant Park Era.

Currency Wars by James Rickards and The Lean Startup by Eric Ries.

Planet Word by J. P. Davidson.

The audio version of Douglas Adams’s Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, read by Stephen Fry.

Spirit Junkie by Gabrielle Bernstein.

The Penguin Deluxe edtion of The Call of Cthulhu and Other Weird Stories by H. P. Lovecraft.

Teenage heartthrobs One Direction’s Dare to Dream.

The Thirteen Hallows by Michael Scott and Colette Freedman.

The Unofficial Harry Potter Sweet Shoppe Kit: From Peppermint Humbugs to Sugar Mice – Conjure Up Your Own Magical Confections by Dinah Bucholz – this title is not in our online database, so you’ll have to come to the store to see it for yourself!  🙂

All Hell Let Loose by Max Hastings, To End All Wars by Adam Hochschild, Inside Seal Team Six by Don Mann (it *finally* arrived), and What It Is Like To Go To War by Karl Marlantes.

Please note: these pictures are from stacks at ABC The Hague only. ABC Amsterdam has different stock – they’ll probably have these titles, too, but to be sure, best give them a call.
