Have you left lists lying around, of must read books for the holidays, hoping that someone will take them along when they shop? It's always worked for me, and I don't mind my hints being blatant (always used to remind family about upcoming birthdays too!) To help fill your lists, I scanned our dusty shelves to come up with BookLoons recommended reads for 2005.
This time, I've stuck mostly to hardcovers and suggest you have a look at our Recommended Reads 2004 to find excellent books that are out in paperback now. As always, I've stuck (with a great deal of difficulty) to only three titles per genre - all published in 2005. Hope you find choices here for all your shopping lists, and especially books that will light up the eyes of your loved ones after they tear open the wrappings ...
