Booking Through Thursday: Friendship
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?
I mostly give books to friends or family as presents for gift giving holidays, but every now and then I give a book away at random. Maybe it is a book a friend took an extra special notice in while I was reading it or maybe the book had that person's name all over the cover when I discovered it in the store. I do my best to match the book with the reader depending on taste and preference.
As it turns out, I discovered a couple of duplicate books among my TBR collection. A rare occurence, but unavoidable now and then given the size of my TBR collection, I suppose. I would like to find homes for them, and what better time to do so with Buy a Friend a Book Week just around the corner? I think a drawing is in order!
The Fencing Master by Arturo Perez-Reverte
Perfect Match by Jodi Picoult
If you are interested in one of the books listed above, leave me a comment specifying which of the two books you might like to add to your TBR collection. You are welcome to put your name in for one or both.* October 4th will be the close off date and a name will be drawn on the 5th.
*Overseas entries welcome.
