Booking Through Thursday – Gifts

Do you give books as gifts?

Yes

To everyone? Or only to select people?

Only if I am familiar with someone's reading habits and can be fairly sure I'm buying the right genre and not something they've already read.

How do you feel about receiving books as gifts?

I always appreciate a gift for the thought so I'd never frown on any gift.  But now that I work in a library, I'm not fond of books as gifts unless they are cookbooks or something extra special, like an illustrated treasury by a favorite children's author or something like that.  Not a novel I could check out and read from the library.

One thought on “Booking Through Thursday – Gifts

  1. I like giving books when I see something that really makes me think of the recipient — so-and-so would love this…. but that pretty much goes for any present — i really like them to be personal and thoughtful.
