Buying Books for Holiday Gift-Giving

Last Saturday was the day designated as Small Business Saturday. Many people went to their local independent bookseller to purchase books for holiday gift-giving. One such person is President Obama, who was accompanied by his family, and a score of reporters. The purchases made contained some recent bestsellers and a few oldies, but goodies.
