Mothers Day Gift Ideas: Online Book Voucher From Scorpio Books

Christchuch, New Zealand (PressExposure) May 10, 2012 -- Do you know what you're going to get your Mum for Mother's day? The truth is, many of us get stuck for ideas when it comes to choosing something special for our mums. How do we know we're choosing something she'll love? This year, why not give a gift voucher for her to order books online, and let her choose her gift instead!

Scorpio Books is a Christchurch institution, having done business in the area for over 32 years. They're proud to be one of only a handful of independent book stores left in New Zealand, and haven't let the recent earthquakes stand in the way of their mission to get good books to the New Zealanders who want them.

Even though the recent Christchurch earthquake destroyed their central city shop, Scorpio books are still running. With a new location at 113 Ricarton Road, another at Cashel Mall, and customers from all over the country buying their books online, Scorpio Books is stronger than ever.

"Reading is one of the best hobbies a person can have, says Jo Hewitson, of Scorpio Books. "With over 20 000 titles across a range of genres, we're certain mum will find something to enjoy in our selection of online books."

The Scorpio book stores and online website stock a diverse selection, from the latest bestsellers to more obscure topics like steampunk, holistic medicine and the occult. Of all the book stores in New Zealand, Scorpio Books boasts the biggest range of science fiction and fantasy titles. "If you wanted to give mum a fantasy escape this Mother's Day, a book is much cheaper than a plane ticket."

"Online ordering is easy. All mum has to do choose her books, add the voucher number to the checkout, type in her ordering information, and a few days later a new stack of books will arrive on her doorstep."

And with free shipping in New Zealand when your order books online, Mum will have even more reason to enjoy a gift voucher these holidays.

Vouchers are for purchasing online books only and come in $20, $25, $50 and $100. Find these as well as a range of titles at Scorpio Books -

About Scorpio Books

Scorpio Books' David Cameron - 46 years a bookseller and planning many more!
David Cameron, Scorpio's owner, has been in books since leaving school to work at UBS Dunedin in 1965. Ten years later he bought the Christchurch business, then Pisces Books. In 1979 there was a change of astrological name to become Scorpio. Initially, the stock was counter-culture alternative and quite different. Cook books were only for vegans and vegetarians, but over the past 22 years much has changed, accelerating 13 years ago when Scorpio moved to a 4000 sq foot site in the city center.
