Booking Through Thursday: The Birthday Edition

:booking: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?”

You know, I have never received a book for a birthday gift as an adult. How odd is that? Of course, if I absolutely must have a book now, I just buy it.

However, my cousin (Shirley) used to buy books for me for my birthday, one biography of Helen Keller and a complete Shakespeare and a collected Sherlock Holmes. Those were great gifts because she took pains to select books she knew I would love.

Now, on a note that has nothing to do with anything, what is up with this weather? Last week we needed UGG Boots and today, we’re breaking out the Coppertone. I even went out in the backyard in my pajamas this morning! I am not ready for summer again already!

  1. What a thoughtful cousin. It’s always nice when someone takes the trouble to really think about a gift they’re giving.

    I know what you mean about the weather – it’s gotten warmer here, too, but misty and damp. Sort of flu weather, actually.

  2. You had a neat cousin. Maybe you two could begin exchanging again, and you’d get another book! Here’s an idea: I’m giving away a couple of books. See my sidebar if you’re interested.
    Happy Booking Through Thursday.
