Best gift books of 2014, plus holiday hours. December 18th, 2014

Holiday Book Show, 2014
The Best Books for the Holidays!
Books make the perfect gift--and the possibilities are endless. Come talk to us about the best book ideas for friends and family, and have a look around for yourself while you're at it!
Here is our holiday catalog to help you start thinking.  And it's OK if you're just starting--we have almost all the hot books for 2014 in stock and in good quantities, plus about 50,000 more.  Need more ideas? Here's a list of all the books discussed when Gibson's Michael Herrmann joined Laura Knoy and Water Street's Dan Chartrand on NHPR's The Exchange for the Holiday Books Show.
Visiting Superstar
We'll have a guest bookseller this weekend! Oren Teicher, the executive director of the American Booksellers Association, will be at Gibson's this Friday and Saturday and early on Sunday. Oren picks one bookstore each Christmas to visit and keep his formidable bookselling skills sharp, and this year he'll be at Gibson's! If you see him, say hello, and don't be surprised if he adds a few books by Erik Larson or Robert Penn Warren to your basket.
Holiday Hours
We're open 9 AM-9 PM every day, Monday-Saturday. This Sunday, our announced hours are 11-6, but a few of us will be here as early as 10 AM if you want to get a head start, and of course we won't leave at 6 if anyone is still in the bookstore.  We'll be open until 5 on Christmas Eve, and (again) won't leave if you're still here shopping. Come buy books for everyone on your list--we'll be here!

New books, new trailers

Station Eleven has captivated several of our store staff, but Tracy was the first to write a review of it. Check it out!
