Salt Lake City, Utah – With Thanksgiving behind us, it's time to turn our attention to the holiday gift giving list. We suspect you may have a few bibliophiles to think about, so we've invited Salt Lake's local book sellers to give us their suggestions. They're bringing children's books, novels, non-fiction, Western titles and miscellanea ... a little something for everyone.
