If you ask us, books make for an ideal holiday gift. Not only are they easy to wrap (Yay Rectangles) but there is nothing better than knowing someone searched shelves for something specifically for you. And there is something about supporting independent shops as well. People's Books & Culture, Last Word and House of Our Own Books are three fantastic places to explore the stacks. Find that perfect gift for your uncle who loves history, your roommate who loves to get lost in fantasy worlds or your dad who fashions himself a bit of a detective for all the crime stories he has consumed.
