Rappler Gift Guide: What to give your book lover friends this Christmas
MANILA, Philippines – We all have that friend whose bookshelf is on its way to replacing the National Library, the friend we all turn to when we want to borrow a book, or when we want to read a book but we're too lazy so we just ask him/her to tell us the story.
This friend is the one who goes to an international book fair like its a pilgirimage, and emerges with sacks of fresh new pages to read on each arm. What does one give to this friend that's less obvious and more creative than a gift certificate to their favorite bookstore?
