Musing Mondays: Books for the Holidays?

This week’s musing asks…
Will you be buying books for the holidays, this year? If so, for whom, and why?
Are you kidding? Yes, I'm buying tons of books for holiday gifts. I work in a bookstore! I put things aside for friends and family almost every day. I can't list out exactly what I'm getting for whom, but lots of my relatives and friends will receive books this year. I've bought a stack for my husband already, and some for other folks as well. I'm also updating my father in law's Moleskine book journal with more suggestions and ideas for his reading list.  It can be tricky to buy books for people; I've certainly not had a 100% success rate with gauging peoples' taste but if you know that someone wants something special, or if you know you've found the perfect thing, a book can be a wonderful gift.

Come back tomorrow if you'd like to see my holiday gift suggestions!
