Booking Through Thursday/Saturday #15: Generosity & Treat

On Saturday
(2 Questions!)
Do you give books as gifts?
In general, yes.
To everyone? Or only to select people?
No, not to everyone. I have some friends who are violently opposed to anything literary or who don't have enough time to read or who just aren't interested in books and I'd rather get them something they'd like than force something unimportant to them on them. :P For my book-ish friends though, I think long and hard about the books I give them so that they'll like them and think I have good taste. haha. 
How do you feel about receiving books as gifts?
Mmmm...if it's a book that I have specifically said I want or is given with a bunch of consideration, I love it. It's nice to see that people know what I like and want to give me something I'll appreciate. For the most part, though, when I receive books they're ones I've already read which isn't so great. So if you're going to buy books for me, be up to date on what I've read and what I want to read! And I think my family and friends know that so they give me giftcards to B&N. Which is just as good. 

What is the best book you ever bought for yourself?
Paper Towns by John Green, signed by him, hands down. It doesn't get much better than that. 
And, why? What made it the best? What made it so special?
Um, JOHN GREEN SIGNED MY BOOK AND PERSONALIZED IT. That's what makes it the best. It's JOHN GREEN. No other explanation is needed, I don't think.


  1. It's weird how we can be good friends with people that just don't read. It seems like it wouldn't work but it does! I have a friend that reads, not like me but she does I guess. A few weeks ago she expresses interest in reading Twilight and then like last week she tells me she's read the first 3, already! I think Twilight is definitely a gateway book :P

    And guess what I'm reading right now, Let It Snow! Perfect for the weather we are apparently going to have!

  2. Hey, I just wanted to let you know, I left something for you on my blog (: Go check it out!


Pour your heart out. :)
