The holidays are a time to reconnect with family, eat youself into a pleasant food coma, and catch up on all the books that have been waiting patiently on your must-read list for most of the year. And no matter how convenient e-readers may be, they can’t compare with the allure of a shiny new hardcover. For the bibliophiles on your list, we’ve put together a collection of 2011’s greatest page-turners—from fashion-focused coffee table tomes to memorable memoirs to the buzziest in new fiction. Whatever they don’t finish over the break can go on their list of New Year’s resolutions.
