Christmas Gift Guide 2017: 26 of the best books for readers

Brilliant leafers to wrap up for bookworms
We are part of The Trust Project What is it?

Choosing books for the discerning devourer of all things written is a deceptively difficult task.

Sure, you could pick up a bestseller or choose something from the discount section, but doing so is to ignore the relationship a reader has with their latest page-turner. From afternoons on the couch to hours on the bus, burying your head in a book is an intensely involved experienced - so you'd better choose wisely.

We're here to help, though, with these 26 stellar shelf-fillers bound to bring book-lovers unbridled joy. You can thank us later.
