PopUK Gift Guide: Book Worm Grandma

Today we're sharing our gift ideas for grandmas across the Sugar sites, so I've chosen a selection of books and audio CDs for those grandmothers who just love to curl up with a great read.

In honour of the 90th anniversary of Armistice Day, I've selected three fascinating books about wartime: The Last Fighting Tommy, Kitchener's Last Volunteer and Nella Last's Peace.

For the fiction lover, there are new offerings from Maeve Binchy, Joanna Trollope and Danielle Steel, and those who favour a romantic read can enjoy Jackie Collins' latest bonkbuster. Romances and crimes are also available in Large Print versions, for grandmas with troublesome eyesight.

A lot of grandmas love a gripping crime, thriller or mystery, and you'll be spoilt for choice with new novels from Ruth Rendell, Dick Francis and P.D. James.

If your grandma prefers non-fiction, you can take your pick from newly released autobiographies from Tony Curtis, Cliff Richard and Sheila Hancock, or grab a book of crosswords or word games from newspapers like The Times, Telegraph and Mail.

For a relaxing treat, there's always audio CDs for radio fans, like I'm Sorry I Haven't a Christmas Clue and Hancock's Half Hour. If you're looking to splash the cash you can get The Complete Sherlock Holmes Radio Collection for under £100.
