So, obvi I think books make the best gifts!

Here are some of my recommendations.

For the Francophile or the fashionista: My Paris Dream  I would like to think if I had my shiz more together I would have been Kate Betts a/k/a the youngest editor ever to take over a national fashion magazine.  Alas, I adored her book.

If you are a music geek  or you worked in Manhattan in the mid 90’s, or if you ever struggled to find yourself — Party of One is for you.  (and NPR agrees – on their best books of 2016 list )
