Last-Minute Holiday Gift Recommendations from Local Indie Booksellers!

Today is Friday, December 23, 2016. For some, this means they will begin their holiday shopping this evening when the crowds and lines are less busy, and they are less likely to have the noise of screaming babies and high pitched shrieks followed by laughter from teens surrounding them.

If you fall into this “last minute” shopper category and don’t know what the heck to get for the book lover in your life, here are some recommendations from our three independent bookstores found in downtown Portsmouth, NH.
