Booking Through Thursday: Generosity

It's Booking Through Thursday time again!

Do you give books as gifts?

The answer to this would be yes! Mr S and I argue though whether you should only give hardbacks as presents but I myself prefer paperbacks anyway so we disagree about this!

To everyone? Or only to select people?

I've never really thought about this until today but I would probably only buy books as gifts for 4 people and they would be myself; my fiance Mr S; my lovely sister and one of my best friends. I think that I have a good idea of what they like to read so I usually feel quite confident that I would be able to choose a book for them that they enjoy. Also other than you kind people on here, they are the main people who I discuss books with and we often ask each other what we are reading and if it's any good!

How do you feel about receiving books as gifts?

It is definitely my favourite type of present! Partly because I love books so to be bought new ones is always a good thing but also because it is nice to think that someone has taken the time to think about what you would enjoy reading as it is a very personal gift.

Happy BTT everyone, I hope you all have a lovely Christmas and receive the odd book or two under the tree!

I must side with Mr. S and vote for hardback books. As I age, paperbacks are frustrating for me to read.

Ha!! Mr BFR also thinks paperbacks -- even nicely bound ones -- should not be given as gifts. I'm more flexible. I go for the book not the binding.

I find that kids are most enthusiastic about receiving books as gifts apart from me!

As long as I know the person is a reader, I will give them books as gifts. I love receiving books for gifts. Especially when the person takes the time to find out what my tastes are.

I'm with you. I'm all about paperback, unless they are mass market paperbacks. I don't like those so much.
