I was out shopping for holiday gifts the other night. Yes, actually going into stores and not clicking through websites. Although, I must admit, most of my shopping this year has been online.
Still - I couldn't help myself be reminded how wonderful a bookstore is at this time of year and what treasures are there for great holiday gifts.
I have a three suggestions this year for super reads...
The Farther Shore by Matthew Eck. A beautiful, haunting war story. It's taut and elegantly written.
The Night in Question: Stories by Tobias Wolfe. He is one of the best short stories writers working today. Absolutely marvelous material.
Riding the Dog: A Look Back at America by Thomas E. Kennedy. Great personal essays filled with incredible insight.
Any other ideas? Good books on your list?
