Making a list, checking it twice

by Heather S

If you have procrastinated in shopping for your holiday gifts, as I have, then my list of last minute book purchases might help as you frantically dash through your local mall.

For my friends, K, who reads everything, and R, who doesn’t read anything: Water for elephants

For my cousin, S, who loves Twilight: Wicked lovely

For my cousin, M, who loves the Harry Potter series: The lightning thief, the first book of the Percy Jackson and the Olympians series

For my sister, who hates reading: Babymouse, queen of the world

For my dad, who is a history buff: The Hemingses of Monticello

For my mom, who is a small town librarian and a crazy cat lady (I love you): Dewey: A small town library cat who touched the world

What are you hoping to unwrap during your holiday celebrations? I still have a few people that I’m shopping for, so any help with great books will be much appreciated! And, to those listed above, if you happen to stumble upon this post, I am sorry that it ruined the surprise. Happy holidays to our readers; may you and your family and friends have a warm and happy holiday season!

I believe, this year, everybody seems to be in love with Out Stealing Horses so that would probably make a great gift for any question marks.
