For The Occasional Nephew

A Listmania! list by W. Guyll "at no extra cost" (Seattle)
(REAL NAME)   
The list author says: "Books make nice, tidy presents. They are inexpensive and fairly easy to wrap. This is why you are giving one to your teenage nephew instead of something he'd really enjoy, like money.
Alas, he probably won't read any of these suggestions. I read them, however, and to hell with ungrateful children. They're getting books whether they like it or not."
