Are books good holiday gifts?
Listen now
We say yes! But there's a way to do it well. As with any type of gift-giving, there are some pitfalls to avoid... For example, arbitrarily giving a book to someone because you like it, or because you've latched on to one detail about them and thus neglected the bigger picture. But never fear! We’ll help you match the right book to the right person using reading doorways. (If you haven't listened to our bonus episode about reading doorways...what are you waiting for?!) Bonus: we’re offering a bookish holiday gift guide as a supplement to this episode. Check it out on our website at:   ----------------------- Books we're reading in this episode: The Snow Child by Eowyn Ivey Morgan Is My Name by Sophie Keech By the Book by Jasmine Guillory Main Character Energy by Jamie Varon ----------------------- Intro and outro music: "The Chase," by Aves.
