Do you give books as gifts?
To everyone? Or only to select people?
Always to my children, sometimes to other people too. Even my husband, who isn't a "reader" by any stretch of the imagination.
How do you feel about receiving books as gifts?
In theory, I think it's great! In practice, I've often recieved books I have no interest in reading or have already read. I haven't made a practice of returning books, so they sit on the shelf or eventually get resold.
