Iceland’s Christmas Book Flood

As the holiday shopping season progresses – for those of you who are already done shopping, don’t talk to me 🙂 – I thought I’d share this NPR story on Iceland’s tradition of book publishing and gifting around the Christmas holiday.

While I wouldn’t want so high a percentage of books to be published at the same time, I love the idea of books as gifts and of putting more importance on books and reading with this tradition. I know I’m giving books as gifts to a few people this year. Do you ever get – or give – books as gifts?
