BTT - Generosity

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

Books are always been the best gift for me. It’s just that some other people won’t value books as preferred gifts compared to other common gifts. I would selectively choose to whom I would give books. As far as I could remember, I had ever given books to my elder sister on her birthday, my niece also on her birthday, and my nephew as souvenirs when I traveled outside my residing country. As I highly value books, I would always be happy to receive books as gifts (even though I never received them as gifts.. :)

Do you think so???

Happy BTT!!!

I think that I am the same as you in that I am very selective as to who I buy books for and then I worry until I see them open it that they won't like it! Happy BTT!

You poor thing. You've never received a book for a gift? Ah, you need to improve your hinting.

I love picking out books for other people!

I really love to book shop for my nephews and nieces.

And I do receive books as gifts too but from my brothers and two close friends.

Here are my posts for BTT:

Books are the best gift - especially for a bibliophile.

Hi friends. Thank you very much for dropping by. The internet connection was pretty bad here. To get connected was really frustrating for the past few days.

Dot, I became choosy to buy books so as to prevent worrying about whether they gonna like them or not.

Smilingsal, hinting must be embarassing for me. I'm shy to tell them.. :) How should I overcome that??

Beth F, it's really kind of you.. How I wished I am around you. :) Perhaps you would be the first person to give me books as gift that would be remembered for the rest of my life..

gautami tripathy, to give books and to receive them are two different passion I could say. I would be very happy to receive them of course, but when I give books as gift, it would ended up on worrying or unhappy feelings..

My Two Blessings, books can be the best gifts only for book-lovers I guess. Otherwise, they won't be appreciated and remembered. :)
