Most of us love giving books as gifts, whether it's because we loved the book and want to share it with our nearest and dearest or simply because we know the recipients are big readers.
But what to do when those we love read so many books? We don't always know what they've read, who they've read or where to go? So in order to help you out, we've created a 'If you loved...' list. As long as you know one of their favourite authors you might be able to find another author for them to sink their teeth into.
Otherwise if you're really not sure what to give them and they're local – we have gift vouchers available at Dog Eared Books!
