Booking Through Thursday is a #meme hosted here. Basically, the host asks a series of book related questions and you have to do your best to answer them honestly. Then, you go back to the host website, leave your link – and be sure to check out other BTT #memes (commenting is always a positive way to show that you’ve been t here!)
This week, January 7th 2010:
What books did you get for Christmas (or whichever holiday you may have celebrated last month)?
One book I received was from my brother, YOU: Having a Baby by Dr. Oz – which I have already started reading. It has really neat little illustrations and written in a humorous way! I also received a $50 gift certificate to Barnes and Noble from my parents and with that I bought Beautiful Creatures, The Everafter, & The Graceling.
Do you usually ask for books on gift-giving occasions or do you prefer to buy them yourself?
I don’t ask for books, but my family knows me pretty well to know that you can’t go wrong with giving me a gift certificate to any book-selling place! Sometimes I receive books without asking for a particular book (like the one my brother got me) but it was very thoughtful and helpful and ended up being perfect. I like to see what people purchase for me in regards for books, because I am fairly unpicky and I like to see the thought process behind it!
