I hesitate to even call this a gift guide because if there is one thing the Internet does not need right now, it’s one more gift guide.
Plus, if you aren’t looking for a gift idea, you can just go ahead and just use this list to request titles from your library for the whopping price of nothing or read on your own in all that spare time you’re certain to have with the holidays coming up. No pressure from me to buy anything. Just think of it as the Winter version of the Summer Reading Guide.
(And, in the interest of full disclosure, here is fair warning that I will still be doing my annual $5 Gift Guide next week. Because I will never stop loving inexpensive things that manage to also be absolutely awesome. Other than that my gift guides this year would basically be “maternity clothing with coupon codes” and “tiny things you can pack with you when you drive all the way from Las Vegas to North Carolina”).
Anyway, here are 36 books I hope you’ll enjoy this season, no matter what your interests or why you’re picking them up:
