Buying a book for a book lover is risky business. For avid readers, selecting a new written adventure can be a deeply personal choice. With so many books to explore, it feels like a waste to read anything other than what's on their ever-growing to-read list. So what's one to buy for the girl (or guy) who has read everything?
