Quick Gift Guide : 25 Most Wished for Books

As silly as it can sound many people deem books a luxury and secretly (or vocally) pine for certain titles for years. This is a perfect genre of gifting--giving what others won't or can't give to themselves. This list was compiled as of today by paperbackswap.com and represents a more realistic view of what people are craving as it is culled from wish lists instead of bestseller lists (obviously if they've already bought it, they won't need it from you). The top 25 are:

1 The Memory Keeper's Daughter by Kim Edwards

2 The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini

3 The Secret Life of Bees by Sue Monk Kidd

4 My Sister's Keeper by Jodi Picoult

5 The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West by Gregory Maguire

6 The Time Traveler's Wife by Audrey Niffenegger

7 Good in Bed by Jennifer Weiner

8 The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time by Mark Haddon

9 The Red Tent by Anita Diamant

10 Two for the Dough (Stephanie Plum, Book 2) by Janet Evanovich

11 Three to Get Deadly (Stephanie Plum, Bookk 3) by Janet Evanovich

12 Vanishing Acts by Jodi Picoult

13 Life of Pi by Yann Martel

14 The Other Boleyn Girl by Philippa Gregory

15 One for the Money (Stephanie Plum, Book 1) by Janet Evanovich

16 Four to Score (Stephanie Plum, Book 4) by Janet Evanovich

17 Running with Scissors by Augusten Burroughs

18 The Glass Castle by Jeannette Walls

19 High Five (Stephanie Plum, Book 5) by Janet Evanovich

20 The Five People You Meet in Heaven by Mitch Albom

21 Middlesex by Jeffrey Eugenides

22 Hot Six (Stephanie Plum, Book 6) by Janet Evanovich

23 Angels and Demons by Dan Brown

24 Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets by J. K. Rowling

25 Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone by J. K. Rowling

And a couple of others, A Million Little Pieces by James Frey (how funny!?) and Reading Lolita in Tehran: A Memoir in Books by Azar Nafisi.

Give or take a few titles this list is very similar to the list last year and the year before that, showing people are willing to wait for years.

How to give it: Grab one of the above books and bundle it with The Book Lover's Kit (mini kit) published by Runningpress.com . These kits are adorable and this one comes with an Ex Libris rubber stamp, ink pad, paper bookplates and a pretty bookmark along with a mini book.
