Booking Through Thursday
Suggested by Marsha:
Buy a friend a Book Week is October 1-7 (as well as the first weeks of January, April, and July). During this week, you’re encouraged to buy a friend a book for no good reason. Not for their birthday, not because it’s a holiday, not to cheer them up–just because it’s a book.
What book would you choose to give to a friend and why?
And, if you’re feeling generous enough–head on over to Amazon and actually send one on its way!
- It always so easy for me when friends tell me what they want. And they will listed it in their wish list. And once in awhile, I would surprise them with a book(s) that is listed in the wish list. And their reaction is always priceless. It always a "Just Because...." book(s). I came upon "Buy a Friend a Book Week" last year (or maybe this year), and have brought a friend a book because of that website once. She is from England. And she love it. After that, I promise myself to go back to "Buy a Friend a Book Week" each months. But as each months goes by, I forgot about it. Being so busy can surely take away your free time.
If I had to chose a book, I would buy a book that I know they would like. Most of my friends have common taste as I do. So I can buy a book that I like, that I think they'll like but never tried to read yet. Or I just know the genres of books they like, even if they're different than mine. If a friend prefer Janet Evanovich's books, than I know to get them something comedies romance books. Or if they like thriller, than I know to get them Stephen King instead of a romance book. But also, I like to buy a book that is just outside of the box too. Know what I mean? ;) :)
Thanks for reminder: I may just go buy a book for a friend(s) today! :)
