After many holiday seasons, once all the Hanukkah and Christmas wrap is strewn all over the floor and the festivities have drawn to a close, I’ve always found that books are the gifts that hold our attention. They are a perfect way to unwind after the holidays, share a connection with others, and spur a long-held New Year’s resolution to read more. That is why we hope to see you in Bookshop Santa Cruz this holiday season. Our booksellers have read hundreds of books so they can recommend a great one for everyone on your list. Then you add our cards, wrap, and gifts, and the season becomes that much easier. Plus, isn't it wonderful to anticipate seeing not only the best new books, but also bumping into fellow book-loving friends and family in our aisles? We are here for you all season long and hope that we become part of your holiday tradition.
