All I want for Christmas is a book to read…or so the song goes in my head. Jessie Carty’s put together a great list of books to give as gifts for the holidays and she covers it all with poetry, fiction, non-fiction, and some other goodies. Kelli Russell Agodon has compiled a wonderful list of Poetry Books for the People in Your Life.
Some books I’d like to recommend for your holiday gift-giving or book-wish-list-assembling:
Kingdom Animalia by Aracelis Girmay – poetry
Pepper Girl by Jonterri Gadson – poetry
This is How You Lose Her by Junot Díaz – fiction
I hope to read more non-fiction books in 2013!
Are there any specific books you recommend for holiday gifts?
