Books are the Gifts that Never Stop Giving
A Book is a wonderful holiday gift to give to somebody who enjoys reading. And a book is certainly a gift that keeps on giving! No matter who is on you holiday shopping list this year, you are certain to find a book for everyone!
Below are a few of my favorite Gift Picks from Agate:

A decade-by-decade team history of the Chicago White Sox from the Chicago Tribune comprising essays, original reporting, archival photographs, and various memorabilia. Hardcover. I could picture a Chicago White Sox fan treasuring this trove of baseball treasures
For the Nonfiction Lover
A rich new memoir about one girl's experience in the US foster-care system and how she emerged not only to survive, but to flourish.
This book is a very interesting, but very sad read about the life of a foster girl who was abandoned whose journey through bleak and unloving foster homes came close to destroying her, but instead helped her find her voice.
