Which books are you giving as presents?


Blogger Anna of {Green Gable} said...

my husband is a huge Frank Sinatra fan. Thank you for this! I love giving books as presents-it's such a personal gift. My choice this year would be Bill Bryson's book Home. I love introducing my friends to his writing.

Gorgeous collection :) I LOVE the Audrey Hepburn book. (I just curled up to Roman Holiday this weekend.) Another great book for anyone into style is Rachel Zoe's guide book.

At anyone who hasn't read them, I always hurl "Guns, Germs and Steel," or "All Quiet on the Western Front." Hardback. Right in the face. BAM! Knowledge!
