BTT - Generosity

Do you give books as gifts?

To everyone?

Or only to select people?

How do you feel about receiving books as gifts?


To people I know who like reading or if I read a particular book that I think someone else will just love. I seem to be quite good a matching people and books, or at least that's what I'm told!

I love getting books as gifts but I really love vouchers!


  1. Bookstore gift cards are my favorite gifts!

    Have a great Thursday!

  2. Yep, gift cards are a good thing.

  3. Gift certs. are a promise of good things to come.

  4. I don't particularly like getting a book as a gift unless it's something I specifically asked for.

    I'm a very picky reader ...

    I prefer a gift card, as the others above mentioned. I'm making a mental note to tell my family this ...

  5. Yes, I buy lots! i try to buy books that I'd already read so that I can match them to the right person and can actually tell them I've read them, so they know they can trust me.
    I buy lots of books for my mum, because she doesn't know what to choose in bookshops, unlike me that I have infinite wish lists all over the places!

  6. I agree, getting to pick out your own books is the best!

  7. I like getting books as gifts, but yes, ones that I may have mentioned I wanted to read. If I tear open the gift wrapping and see 'Finance 101', then I think Ill have to change my opinion. Well, ok not Finance 101 but you know what I mean.

    I buy books for friends only if I know they want to read a specific one.

  8. Hello Alexa, Please forgive me for being so bold, but I am doing a bit of blog surf to invite people to sign up for my giveaway. There are no gimmicks. This is just my way of celebrating two years of blogging. On January 4th I am giving away a free caricature drawn by me. I'd be honored if you came by and signed up for a chance to win.


I adore comments, so thanks so much for taking the time. I'll try and return the favour :D
