12 Days of Christmas … Day 3, Best Books to Gift This Holiday Season

Hello everyone and “Welcome” to the blog, and day 3 of my 12 Days of Christmas.

I know it can be hard trying to find that perfect gift for a friend or a family member, and nothing says I appreciate you like a book.  Books make excellent gifts, you can find them everywhere, and they can ship in a day.

Since I’ve set my Good Reads List goals I always appreciate a good book, so I’m listing a few of the Best Books to gift someone this Holiday Season.  You can find a complete list on Amazon’s Holiday Bookstore or Good Reads … Best of 2019 Book List.

Check out some of these titles!
