Holiday Gift Guide

You can’t eat a book. Can’t use it to pay rent or taxes. Physically, you don’t need books. By this definition, books become a luxury item. In leaner times, people buy fewer books for themselves, making them the ideal gift giving item: their appearance under the tree special and welcome.

The January Magazine Holiday Gift Guide has been rolling out for several weeks now and -- knowing us -- it will keeping rolling until the last possible moment. (So many books! So little time!)

The January Magazine 2011 Holiday Gift Guide is here.

Hmm...It sounds fun, but I'm confused. I click on the link to "gift guide" but all I get is another blurb on "gift guide"?

If we're allowed to add to the list, I just read (and enjoyed) Why Read Moby-Dick? It's much shorter than its namesake!

Great compilation. I especially liked the Misanthrope's Guide to Life. Must find six copies of that to give as hostess gifts between now and the big day!
