Holiday Buying Guide 2014

During the holidays I’m not the most organized and prepared sort of person when it comes to mailing out Christmas cards (a successful year is one in which I’ve actually written out cheery messages and scrawled addresses on envelopes…but then forget to mail them out…) or purchasing gifts more than a week or two in advance.  In my defense, this year has been even more hectic than usual.

So, that being said, I’ve slapped together a set of links of gift giving ideas for literature lovers.  All you have to do is click! 🙂
