Booking Through Thursday: Generosity

  1. Do you give books as gifts?
  2. To everyone? Or only to select people?
  3. How do you feel about receiving books as gifts?

Whether or not I give books as gifts would depend a lot on the persons at the receiving end. A non booklover would not appreciate the gift as much as a person who loves reading. I even have friends who warned me NOT to buy them books (just because they know that I love books and in case I decide to get books for them). So yes, I've been expressly 'warned'...

Definitely YES, I give books (physical or gift vouchers) to everyone who loves books, which also means selected few, unfortunately. How I wish my friends are also booklovers (obviously this excludes my book blogger friends *GRIN*)... As much as I would like to shower them with book love, I can't (please refer to the earlier paragraph).

I am a participant of the Book Bloggers Christmas Swap and therefore, am a Secret Santa too. I love giving books AND receiving them. It's so fulfilling, satisfying and it totally rocks!

NOTE: There are two questions for this week (Generosity or Treat) and I chose this one.
