Reading For Sanity's Book Gift Suggestions

If you're anything like me, I'm sure you have quite a few people
on your Christmas who have a big question mark next to their name.
What do you get the person who has everything?
Might I suggest a book? 

I mean, besides being a gift that you can tailor to fit the recipient,
they are also incredibly easy to wrap. 

Do me one favor, though.
If you are going to give someone a book, make sure it's a good one. 
don't just pick something up from the bargain bin. 
They are usually there for a reason. 
To help any of you who might be struggling to find
just the right gift for those ???'s on your Christmas list,
here are a few suggestions of books we have enjoyed.

*Think about buying these titles at your local independent bookstore. If that isn't possible, we've linked the titles of all these books to an online independent bookstore where you can buy new or gently used copies.
