Ah, there's nothing like a brand new gift guide, am I right? The following are a selection of (mostly) new books we think would make great gifts. Some are political, most are not because, let's face it, we're all pretty exhausted.
If none of these are what you're looking for, please do give us a call or send us an email for recommendations! (Oh, and please note that our website is tied into a wholesaler's warehouse and we often have titles in stock that the website lists as being backordered)
