Booking Through Thursday asks:
Do you give books as gifts? To everyone? Or only to select people? How do you feel about receiving books as gifts?
Yes I do give books as gifts but not to everyone. If I know someone isn't a reader, I won't send or give them any books. They wouldn't appreciate it. Both Father and I come from a family of readers: I know what everybody likes to read and send them books in those genre's. Both my dad and father's dad only read non fiction, my brother and sister in law love science fiction, one sister reads mainly christian fiction, etc, etc, etc. They don't necessarily like books for every gift so I honor that.
But for this Christmas....
The surprise will be what books they get. Thanks to all the book bloggers out there in internet land, I've discovered a whole new array of stories.
I love receiving books as gifts. Since father can't go out shopping right now, I sat him down at the computer a couple nights ago, signed him into my private amazon wish list. He was concerned about buying something someone else had already chosen to buy me for a gift. I solved that by setting up a public gift list and private wish list.
I left him to it and kept hearing an evil cackling coming from the kitchen. He yells out to me. "Dear, what's the longest book ever written, the one with the most pages?"
Huh? He really can't keep a secret. So I guess I'll be receiving a really long book. Any guesses as to what that might be?"
