Here's one for the geeks in your life. Julian Dibble has written a book called Play money : or, How I quit my day job and made millions trading virtual loot about his experience playing MMORPG's and the real world economies that develop around them. Especially the trading of virtual items for real money on eBay.
Dibble is an interesting writer who charts his progress from a noob, and his first experience of being pwned.

A fun read, the book also goes into quite interesting discussions about economies and the massive amounts of money spent buying rare items, as well as the philosophical discussion amongst players about whether it is the right thing to do.

Grab a copy and may the geek be with you.
