Ruckus Books just opened their virtual doors on December 3rd. In honour of their grand opening, they are offering 25% off and free shipping on all orders.
Ruckus Books comes under the same company as Book Outlet, who we know and love already, and they use the same distribution channels as well. However, Ruckus Books is very different from Book Outlet. Where Book Outlet is the premier destination for Canadian discount books, Ruckus books specializes in 3D books. These are really incredibly detailed books where the book itself takes on the shape, image, or texture of what it is about.
3D books make incredible gifts for anyone who is passionate about a certain subject. My companion's cousin is a huge beer fan. We are not talking Molson or Corona here; this gentleman is a connoisseur of import beers and even built himself a beer cellar. His last vacation was a trip to Belgium for the beer tasting and tours. For him, I think this A World of Beer 3D book would make an incredible gift. The book is shaped like a beer bottle and it tells the history of beer and how it is made. Regularly priced at $29.99, it is now on sale for $22.49.
For me, A World of Chocolate is the book I would choose. In most cities I visit, a chocolate tour is one of the first orders of pleasure. I adore chocolate in all forms: dark, milk, and good quality white. I love it in liquid form and in solid. This book is shaped like a chocolate bar. Not only that, it feels and smells like one too. The book talks about chocolate around the globe and includes a number of recipes for you to experiment with as well. Regularly priced at $29.99, the book is now on sale for $22.49. I like that it comes wrapped in foil and boxed.
I think 3D books are good gifts for anyone extremely passionate about a given subject. There are several books to choose from including food, drink, fashion, and sports. Also, if you run a business, then Ruckus Books can create custom 3D books that preserve texture, shape, size, and even scent into a memorably book.
All prices are in USD. Right now, all books qualify for free shipping.
