Looking for holiday gifts? Some of our favorite authors are published by Heyday Books, and the Berkeley-based publishing house's annual Holiday Book Sale and Open House is always well worth a visit. This year's sale offers 25 percent off on all books, and 75 percent off on damaged and out-of-print titles. Check it out from noon to 5 p.m. Saturday at 1633 University Ave. in Berkeley.
