Christmas and Book Giving

Happy December! What are your Christmas (or other winter holiday) plans? What gifts are you giving? Books I hope!

U.S.A. Today (on 11/25) listed the top 150 books (based on sales). Here are the top five.

1 Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Third Wheel, Jeff Kinney (Amulet Books) , $13.95
2 Notorious Nineteen, Janet Evanovich (Bantam) , $13.99
3 The Elf on the Shelf: A Christmas Tradition, Carol V. Aebersold, Chanda B. Bell (CCA and B) , $29.95
4The Forgotten, David Baldacci (Grand Central Publishing) , $14.99
5The Racketeer, John Grisham (Doubleday) , $28.95

Are people buying these as gifts? For themselves? And what about the lesser known titles? Just because a book isn't on the top 150, doesn't mean it's not worthy.

Here are some sources for books you might not have heard of.

Your own local independently owned bookstore. Yes, some of them still exist.

Or click on the links of my followers. Many of them write fine books which they post about on their blogs!
