I cannot believe Christmas is almost here! I like to put together some sort of gift guide every year, and I thought I would mix it up and do a bit of a series. This is part one, where I am sharing all of my books about books that I think would make for great gifts for book lovers. I know that we can be difficult to buy for because it is hard to know what we have read or what we might be interested in, but you can never go wrong with a book about books!
