Books as Gifts!

We are loving all the online buzz about giving books as holiday presents this year! Here are a few spots where you can get must-buy advice and add your own purchases to the recommendation lists:

First, Book Reporter tells us all the many reasons why books are the perfect gift!

The Disreputable History of Frankie Landau Banks author (and National Book Award nominee) E. Lockhart's recommended list for "boyfriend and teenagers."

Our own Little Willow blogs on sparknotes.com about the right book picks for all sorts of recipients, plus book-related gift ideas (think literary music mixes, writing journals, and multiple copies of a title for a new book club!)

Amor and Summer Secrets author Diana Rodriguez Wallach brings us The 12 Books of Christmas!

Yahoo!'s SHINE recommends gifts for the literary fan.

Add the titles you've picked out to the growing list at When the Going Gets Tough, the Tough Buy Books.

Who else has a list of great book gift ideas? Let us know.

UPDATED: A fantastic list from Chasing Ray!

Happy book shopping!

I recently came across your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I don't know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog. I will keep visiting this blog very often.
