Booking Through Thursday

Do you give books as gifts?
To everyone? Or only to select people?
How do you feel about receiving books as gifts?

Yes, I give books as gift. Mostly to people that I know read and I give them books by authors that they read regularly or that are next in a series that I know they are reading.

I also like to buy books for the young people in my life. If I can encourage younger people to read I do.

I have had times when I read a book that I just had to share with people in my life and bought them all the book whether they wanted it or not.

I love to receive books as gifts, infact I have a pretty extensive wish list on I have a button on my MySpace and Plaxo page in order to share it with others.

My Wish List


  1. I don't have a list; I guess it would be a good idea, but I've always felt it would make me frustrated. I like books or a gift certificate for a bookstore.

  2. *waves hands in the air* Oh Yes, this is so true... How do i know this.. I'm reading a set of books that you bought me for my Birthday!... :-) Again, i can't thank you enough!..

    Love you,


  3. I LOVE giving books... to whoever it is appropriate to give them to. And I love to get them as well. They might just be my favorite gift!

  4. I only give books to kids. I'm a book addict myself and love reading. I prefer to read spiritual type books or anything New Agey but right now I'm venturing into reading Nora Roberts- The Sign Of Seven Trilogy. It's very different for me to be reading this but I love it. :)

  5. Yes! Oh, I'm a book giver and a book receiver.

    I learn about variety this way--cuz there are some I'd never have purchased and read were it not for the receiving.

  6. I love giving and getting books!! I need to go start a list of books!! I just need to find some time to read more.......hopefully after the holidays!! Hope you all are doing good, and enjoy reading your blog as always!! Love ya both!
