Amazon for the holidays?


Ordering books from Amazon for the holidays? Procrastinators, take note.

The cash-short United States Postal Service has struck a deal with the online retailer to deliver the company’s packages on Sundays — a first for both. The deal gives the Postal Service, which lost nearly $16 billion last year, a chance to boost its business. The Postal Service said it expected to make more deals with other merchants, and carve out a larger role in the $186 billion e-commerce market. This holiday shopping season, Sunday Amazon delivery will be limited to the LA  and New York metro areas, then expand to other cities in 2014.

Bill O’Reilly is making a killing in the New York Times Best seller list this week with two titles in the top 20 for Nonfiction – Killing Kennedy and Killing Lincoln. Are they worth your time? Yes, they are….Honest Abe. Written with Martin Dugard, the books are meticulously researched and filled with facts surrounding the two presidential assassinations. Even if you’re a history buff, you’ll come away with a strong sense of time and place, and new insights into events and players.

O’Reilly’s TV show and shtick may NOT be your bag, but trust me – you WILL enjoy these titles.
