It's hard to believe this has happened, but it's already December, and the holiday shopping season is slipping by. What will you get your book-loving beloveds? Sure, they always seem to appreciate a book, but giving a book to a reader carries certain risks. What if you pick the one author they simply loathe? What if you write a heartfelt Christmas message on the front leaf of the crisp new volume, only to watch helplessly as they unwrap the same book from someone else before yours? What if they just already own it?
In short, what do you get the bookworm who has everything? We're never against taking a risk on a book as a gift, but these book-themed doodads and trinkets should offer a different kind of thrill to the voracious reader on your shopping list.
