I know it is early, but with the entire month of December's discussions scheduled for year in review, I wanted to ask now: What books are you buying for people this holiday season?
If you read this blog AND participate in the Monday Discussion, I know you are a book lover. And, us book lovers love to give books to people.
So, share your ideas here, or use the discussion to get new ideas. I will start. For all of the adult readers on my list I am giving Before I Go to Sleep by S. J. Watson. This is a great, thrilling, and suspenseful story with little sex and violence. I will have a full review soon, but it is my go-to holiday book gift. I have already told my Dad to buy it for my Mom. It is also on many year-end best lists and is a Berwyn Staff favorite.
I will also be gifting the new Shel Silverstein poetry collection Every Thing On It and Wonderstruck by Brian Selznick to families on my list, including my own.
Finally, I would like to remind people to support their local book store when making their book purchases. I am splitting my purchases between my children's school book sale and The Book Table in Oak Park.
So what books are you planning to gift this season?
