Gift ideas for readers, 2008

See what the library staff is recommending in our annual Books Librarians Give list!

Not enough ideas for you?  Check our our lists from 2007, 2006, and 2005.

And here’s more:

Greater Boston (WGBH-TV)’s list of holiday books (and movies), with local authors and Mary Cotton from Newtonville Books–video of the show is here.

The Books of ’08 from WBUR’s On Point with Tom Ashbrook.

NPR has a whole page of “Best Books” lists, covering booksellers’ picks, fiction, crime & mystery novels, graphic novels, foreign fiction, cookbooks, and more.

And Book Group Buzz has a roundup of a few more lists here.

Interestingly, none of these lists overlap very much, demonstrating that there’s a great book out there for everyone!
