Each year over the Thanksgiving holidays, I update my "Gift Guide for Library and Book Lovers" hotlist. I created it YEARS ago as a lark, when I was demonstrating the power of Filamentality, a free online hotlist builder by AT&T's Education Advocate Team. Check out the categories and collections, then let me know if you know of any additional bookish (not books!) sites that would enhance this list. Categories include: Gifts Fashion Decorations Reading and Library Advocacy Library Foundations & Philanthropy International Reading & Library Programs
New items came from a mix of California art and wine street fairs and suggestions from librarians across North America. Here are a few of the new:
- Recycled Maps into Bound Blank Journals.
- "Bank" books and boxes disguised as books.
- M.L.S.: Melanie's Library Shop
