The Inprint 2015 Houstoncentric Holiday Book Buying Guide

December 22, 2015, by

As the holidays are literally hours away, Inprint has put together a Houstoncentric Holiday Book Buying Guide to help with that last minute gift buying—or to give your personal reading list a happy local boost.

Inprint shared this list during its monthly appearance on the Open Journal Radio Show on KPFT 90.1 FM, Houston’s Pacifica station. All the books on the list are written by current or former Houstonians (with one technical exception). Whether you are looking for a holiday gift or something good to read yourself, it’s always nice to try something published by a fellow Houstonian. Read and enjoy and happy holidays!
