Your Quarter’s Worth Best Reads of 2021 Make the Best Christmas Gifts

It’s Christmas time once again.

That means it’s time to hook up those you care about with gifts. It’s also the time of year when you treat yourselves to good deals or an impulse buy or three.

It sure can be stressful figuring out what to get for the giftees in our lives, especially those who already have or buy everything they need throughout the year. So what is the perfect gift to get your loved ones and friends? The answer is books!

Who doesn’t love getting books?

Most people read them. Others feel smart having them on bookshelves when they have company over. A select, classy few use them as coasters when they can’t find anything else to set their drinks on.

We read a ton of books here at Your Quarter’s Worthand we’ve curated a list of the best ones we’ve read in 2021 to be your gift guide for this holiday giving season. No turds here!

Whether your people like fiction, non-fiction, graphic novels, or YA, it’s all here. So pull this up next to your Nice List, and happy gifting.
