‘Tis the season for gift-giving, and perhaps there’s no better year than 2020 to send your loved ones a book to keep them company as they stay at home waiting their turn for a vaccine.

First in our holiday gift guide series this year are BIG books. Whether you call them tomes, whoppers, or doorstoppers, all five of these books are over 500 pages in length. They’d be perfect for that friend who you know would rather bury their nose in a book than join you for happy hour on Zoom.
