Books to Give; Books to Get

Recently, a major publishing company asked several of its authors what books they would be giving as gifts this year, and what books they would most like to receive as gifts. We're curious how our own customers would answer those questions. Do you have a hot book you're "gifting" this year? What books are on your own wish list? We'd love to hear what you have to say on the topic. Just click on "comment" below this post to respond. Thanks!

  1. For the excellently behaved literary readers on your Christmas list, "2666" ($30, FSG) by Roberto Bolano is the ticket. For young adults, I adore the Harper Perennial reissue of Michael Chabon's "Mysteries of Pittsburgh" -- a bargain at $10. My favorite board books for readers of all ages are "The Boy Who Loved Words," a Parent's Choice Gold Award by Roni Schotter and Giselle Potter (Scwartz & Wade Books, 2006) and "The Boy Who Was Raised by Librarians" by Carla Morris (Peachtree 2007). And everyone on my Christmas list is getting the newest issue of The Grove Review: A Literary Magazine (No. 4) -- I hear there's a wonderful essay about Portland by a very funny and smart Portland writer ;)
