Holiday Gift Guide! (And Gift Pick #1)


It's one of my favorite times of the year: vicarious shopping week! Yes, dear readers, it's time for our Annual Holiday Gift Guide, where I feature eight book-related items that I would personally quite like to receive as gifts.

I like these "Hero Bookends" from Uncommon Goods. (There's a "Heroine" one, too, don't worry.) They're cute, eye-catching, and, at $25, they'd make reasonably priced gifts...

Mostly ridiculous, a little bit sublime


I love these bookends from Anthropologie, but, like so many of things sold at that store, they are ridiculously overpriced. They're priced between $168 and $228, because adding fake snow apparently adds sixty bucks to the already inflated cost.

Mixed company
