Giving Books as Gifts

If you want to give books as gifts to your friends and family members but aren't sure want to get, I have lots of suggestions and recommendations for you!

I have many booklists available, arranged by age/reading level and/or topic, which you may access at my archive site. Alternatively, you can click the "booklists" tag here at the blog, which are in chronological order, meaning you will see my most recently updated booklists first.

To make your holiday shopping easier, I have the Suggested Sets booklist, which groups together books with similar themes, as well as the If Then lists (If you or the person you're shopping for like this book, then you/he/she will like this book...) for Elementary School, Middle School, and High School.

I make "best of" booklists every month and every year, listing the best books I read in that time period by audience, age, and topic. You can get these lists at my archive site or right here at the blog by clicking the "best of" tag.

At the end of the month, I will post my Best Books of 2009 list here at Bildungsroman. I have a sneak-peek version available at Amazon: Best Books of 2009 (So Far).

I hope you find these booklists, recommendations, and reviews useful!

Liz at A Chair, A Fireplace & A Tea Cozy has posted a round-up of bookish gift ideas.
