What to Give

By now I’m sure you have all realized that books make great gifts. Did you ever wonder what your favorite authors read? Penguin Group asked their authors which books they will be giving this season and which books they would most like to receive. If Stuart Woods or Geraldine Brooks is on your shopping list this year or if you are a huge Nick Hornby or Jan Brett fan, check out Penguin’s site on What to Give & What to Get .

Need more ideas? The 2008 Indie Bestsellers were announced this week. The list includes the year’s top-selling titles at independent bookstores across the country in the categories of Hardcover Fiction, Hardcover Nonfiction, Trade Paperback Fiction, Trade Paperback Nonfiction, and Children’s and Young Adult.
