By Lorraine Berry: 24 Best Books to Gift to the Strong Feminist in Your Life
It’s that time of the year again: when those of us with holiday obligations try once again to come up with gifts for friends and family. As a bibliophile, I love nothing more than introducing someone to a book that I have loved and making a gift of it to them. I always hope that the recipient will love the book as much as I have, and sometimes envy that they will be experiencing the book for the first time. But matching people to books can be difficult, especially if the subjects that interest them are outside of your own favored genre or subject matter.
