Citizen Reader's Holiday Gift Guide: As Always, Julia

Citizen Reader's Holiday Gift Guide

Well, as previously noted, I'm having a hard time reading enough new books to be able to post lots of reviews here.* So, I thought I'd get some ideas out there for books that would make great gifts this holiday season. Largely, these suggestions will function as my "Best of 2010" list, as I'll really only be suggesting books I enjoyed. I'm always looking for book gift ideas myself, so if there's anything you read this year that really made an impact on you, please let me know in the comments.

But first? A bit of an informal poll. Do you still buy books as gifts? For whom do you buy book gifts? Are there any subjects or types for which you're looking for suggestions? And, last but not least, how do you think we will buy book gifts for each other in the e-book age?

*I have been re-reading books like a madwoman. (Evidently my brain can still handle books I've already read; it's just having problems with new information.) This week I'm re-reading Stacy Horn's memoir Waiting for My Cats to Die, which I loved the first time around, and which I'm loving again.
