Subject: The gift of words

The best things in life are free, it's said, and I see it clearly in the
eyes of my five-year-old daughter as we build a sand-castle, a
paper-frog, or a pine-cone-decoration together. The sparkle in her eyes at
one of these less-than-perfect creations is many times brighter than when
she is given a new toy.

This holiday season, as we contemplate gifts for people on our list,
let's remember that the gift of time is perhaps best of all. But for those
ties when we can't offer the perfect gift, may we suggest the second-best -
the gift of words. You have a choice of:

1. A Word A Day, the book:
   "A delightful, quirky collection." -The New York Times
   http://amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/0471230324/ws00-20/

2. A gift subscription of A.Word.A.Day Premium:
   http://wordsmith.org/awad/premium.html

3. A gift subscription of the free edition of A.Word.A.Day:
   http://wordsmith.org/awad/gift.html

Happy words to you,

-Anu
