Books as great last-minute gift ideas

About these ads

Save all your holiday shopping till today? Not a problem. Books make excellent last-minute gift ideas and we have so many good ones to recommend.

For starters, check out the Monitor's "best of 2008" reading lists, both best novels of 2008 and best nonfiction books of 2008.

Our recommended novels run the gamut from some top-notch thrillers ("The Likeness" by Tana French, "When Will There Be Good News" by Kate Atkinson, "A Most Wanted Man" by John Le Carre) to some surprising debut novels ("A Golden Age" by Tahmima Anam, "The Story of Edgar Sawtelle" by David Wroblewski, "All Shall Be Well; And All Shall Be Well; And All Manner of Things Shall Be Well" by Tod Wodicka) to new contributions by established literary stars ("Mercy" by Toni Morrison, "The Given Day" by Dennis Lehane, "A Plague of Doves" by Louise Erdrich.)
