I live near a second-hand (used) bookstore. It's a Godsend. They have a huge bookstore cat. No idea what to give in these tough times? Looking for a gift that's meaningful,AND economical? Try books-rare titles,classics-conteporary lit -at a VERY reasonable price. This is what I buy for family and friends EVERY year. My sister likes classics,horror,and weird poets. Another sister likes the royals. An aunt likes Dr Phil. :yikes(she's cool,though.) I ace the wish list every year. Except for my dad who wants a new gas-powered weed whacker. But the bookstore bunch has connections,so he gets entertainment books,and C.D.s.
