Ordering books for Christmas? Place your orders by midnight tonight for In Stock titles

Santa finds out where Alice Springs is

Santa may not be great at giving books (the coal always seems to smudge) but you have to admire his efficient delivery.

Unfortunately we don’t have magical reindeer to help us deliver presents this Christmas. We have Australia Post who, while being absolutely wonderful, do get incredibly busy this time of year.

So, if you’re ordering for Christmas, we strongly recommend placing your order for In Stock titles by midnight tonight. There’s nothing worse than not getting your gift in time for Christmas.

This Christmas, think of the children.

Place your orders tonight, or there will quite possibly be No Ho Ho.

A Booktopia Exposé – Mall Santa and 20 Pictures of Scared Children

As if you needed more reasons to buy your gifts from Booktopia (in stock titles need to be order by December 10 for delivery in time for Christmas), we decided to explore the heady world of Mall Santa.

You see, Mall Santa comes much earlier than his boss Santa Claus. He arrives at a shopping centre near your house. He brings his elves, who look alarmingly like disinterested high school dropouts with plastic ears. He poses for photos and asks children what they’d like for Christmas.

He makes children cry.

That’s right, I said it. Santa scares children. He has a comically unkempt beard, a giant bright red robe and army boots. He works for a man with magic powers, which he uses to break into houses to eat cookies and drink milk. He leaves presents at the foot of beds, and his handwriting looks eerily like a tipsy adult’s.

Picture it. Once a year, your parents grab you, throw you in the car, and drive you to the loudest place in the world where you are told to sit on a strange man’s knee and asked by him, with a brandy breath, if you’ve been a good little boy or girl this year.

Nope. It’s just not right. Buying gifts at Booktopia is just easier. No queues. No crying children. No brandy breath. Check out our Christmas Gift Guide today, and stop this madness.
