BR_Podcast_Square_holidayHallmark has unleashed its never-ending line-up of sappy holiday movies. All around us, bells are jingling, lights are twinkling, and halls are decked. The holidays are upon us, and that means it’s time to, you know, start thinking about book-gifts for the people we love (and maybe the ones we’re just obligated to shop for, it’s OK, that happens too).

Last year, Jeff and I had a total blast with our special holiday episode of the Book Riot Podcast, so we’re digging out our pointy-toed elf shoes and gearing up to do it again. Stumped on finding the perfect book for your parent/sibling/aunt/uncle/friend/coworker/neighbor/dog walker/favorite teacher? We’re on it!

Drop your book-gift rec requests in the comments here, or shoot us an email at by Sunday, November 23rd. We’ll share our answers on an episode that will drop the week of Thanksgiving, so you’ll have plenty time for shopping.

So…who are you having a hard time picking books for?
