What to look for on Smart Talk Wednesday, December 4, 2013:
It’s become a holiday tradition on Smart Talk and one of the favorite shows of the year – books as gifts.
Books have always been a thoughtful and treasured gift. Almost everyone enjoys and can appreciate a book -- whether it is paper with a hardback cover, paperback, or an ebook -- as a gift.
On Wednesday's Smart Talk, we'll discuss the books that would make great gifts. They may or may not be new or on the bestseller lists, but our panel will recommend and describe several titles to think about.
Joining us will be Catherine Lawrence, co-owner of the Mid Town Scholar Bookstore in Harrisburg and a writer herself, Todd Dickinson, co-owner of Aaron's Books in Lititz, and Jon Walker, who blogs book reviews at jonosbookreviews.com.
We'd like to hear your suggestions as well. What books do you think your friends or loved-ones would enjoy or what books are on your wish list this year?
