  • I don't know who you're buying for, but I had an uncle that I didn't know what to buy for, and I bought him one of those Uncle John's Bathroom Readers--that are filled with facts and funny stories. He absolutely loved it!
    I personally love the Sookie Stackhouse Series and the Twilight Series. I love all of Pat Conroy's books and I love a lot of the classics. Someone got me a beautiful leather bound collection of Shakespeare on year and I love it.

  • I've chosen a 1 yr. subscript. to "Hi-Lights for children" as a gift for my granddaughter. I grew up loving this magazine. Still read it in the doctor's waiting room!

  • For an adult or child? My teens would tell you the Twilight series. For a baby or young child I suggest Someday, it is beautiful.

  • Everything mentioned above, plus the Outlander series by Diana Gabaldon, the Brotherhood of War series by W.E.B. Griffin, anything by Cornelia Funke (yeah, they're kids' books, but good reading for any age). J.K. Rowling just published The Tales Of Beedle The Bard, a companion book to the Harry Potter series. Watership Down.
