Booking Through Thursday

This week's question:

What, if any, memorable or special book have you ever gotten as a present? Birthday or otherwise. What made it so notable? The person who gave it? The book itself? The “gift aura?”

My answer:

As much of a bookaholic that I am, I've never received a book as a present. However, I have received gift cards to Borders. I admit, I practically get giddy when I get one of those, my eyes light up and then it's get out of my way while I spend hours in the store. LOL I think gift cards are the best thing invented, so the person can choose whatever they'd like.


  1. Well, you've made me feel better. I always feel uneasy when giving a gift card; it's so impersonal. But after reading your thoughts, I'll be a bit more confident. Happy Booking Through Thursday. I have a book giveaway going on; check out my sidebar if you're interested.

  2. I second the book gift card glee! You're not just giving a gift - you're giving time in a bookstore, which I love, too.

  3. ohh yeah - i definitely think Gift cards are awesome... esp for books!


  4. Gift cards are wonderful! Whenever I get one I do a Happy Dance. I think I've just about convinced everyone who buys me gifts that bookstore gift cards are the way to go.

  5. Same, my eyes light up at gift cards! And books! And any sort of present, really :)
