It may feel like Fall just arrived, but we are within two months of the Holiday Season!  We are presenting our Holiday Gift Guide a little early this year and focusing on small Etsy shops. 

With COVID causing increased demand with online shopping and the inevitable shipping delays, it will be prudent this year to shop early.  Check out our previous post, How to Support Independent Bookstores, to learn more.


Buy Early, Why? I American Booksellers Association

Now my favorite automatic gift is a book, of course, particularly true crime thrillers from this list.  But sometimes, your loved one’s To Be Read Pile is miles long! 

These carefully selected (and by that I mean, someone please buy these items for me!) book themed gifts from Etsy are sure to delight the literary lover in your life.

I also encourage you, if you can safely shop at an independent bookstore, to check out their selection of gifts.  Many bookstores have puzzles, book themed gifts, and cards that are sure to delight every one on your list.
