Yeah! The Holiday Gift Guide-Books was published in The New York Times yesterday.
Sooooo many good reads, but here are a few I am considering as gifts or (more likely) for my own library!

The Tiger’s Wife, Tea Obreht’s debut novel about a politically unstable Balkan country.
In the Garden of Beasts: Love, Terror and an American Family In Hitler’s Berlin by Erik Larson (Devil in the White City,) a novelistic nonfiction account of the experiences of the U.S. Ambasador to Berlin William Dodd & his family in 1933.
Food Rules: An Eater’s Manual, Michael Pollan’s updated manifesto.
The Perfectly Imperfect Home: How To Decorate & Live Well by the founding editor of the late lamented Domino magazine, Deborah Needleman.
Chicks With Guns, a self explanatory book of photographs whose title alone makes it worth a look!
Temples of Cambodia: The Heart Of Angkor, lush photographs, perfect for the traveler, armchair or otherwise.
