How many of you readers/writers give books every year for Christmas? What kind of criteria do you use before you do? Is it something you have to have read? Is it okay if it's recommended to you? Do you give books to individual children, or do you let them be a "family" gift, so no one child hogs them?
I'm a firm believer in the giving of books, but as my kids get older, it's getting harder. Especially for my 14-going-on-30 daughter. Here are the links to the books I've chosen so far. I haven't read any of them (shocking, I know, as this is my chosen genre.) I still have to get some for my 3 youngest, all in the beginning reader/picture book stage. Recommendations before Thursday would be welcome, as I'll probably go then to do the last minute shopping. Have a wonderful holiday, all!
