Ooops...almost missed Tuesday again.

Well, it seems that this may well be the last Tuesday Thinger. I am sure we all wish to give our great thanks to Boston Billiophile for her work on it and while I have not been here as long as many, it has been fun.
So this weeks question....the last {{sob...sob}}

Today's question: Holiday gift-giving. Do you give books for the holidays? Did you participate in LT's SantaThing, either this year or last, or in other blogging gift exchanges? Were you happy with what you received?

Do I give books for Christmas? Well, usually not. I know, we should support book sellers by giving book gifts. But let's face it, it is very hard. First you have to try to determine someon's taste...hard enough...and then, even worse, you have to try to see if they might already have the book. Now, of course, if they are on Library Thing you might have a much better idea. A much better idea of both things actually.
But I am a fan of the book gift card! To gove or recieve. So if any of you are looking for that perfect gift for me, look no further! lol
I have said it before, but I will repeat it. It is a lovely pleasure to spent an hour or two...or an afternoon...in a bookstore, looking around and if you know you have that gift card in your pocket to pay fro your pickings, ever better!!

Now this year I am giving books to two of my gift receivers. But they are both children and I figure how many books can they own. Well, actually, quite a few maybe but I have hopes that they will not have the ones I bought. I think there are few gifts better for a child than help in developing a love of reading.

LT Santa Thing...no. This is the first year I have been on LT and so this was the first I heard of it. To tell the truth, I did not quite understand how it worked. And it is bad enough to buy things for people that I know that they hate let alone to do it for strangers too.
Maybe next year...

In the meantime, I need to find something else to fill my Tuesdays! Any suggestions??
For any day of the week actually. Something that does not involve a great deal of thinking or introspection.


  1. Wendi of Wendi's Book Corner has agreed to take over for Marie.

  2. That is grand news! Thanks for letting me know.

  3. I love giving (and getting) book gift cards. It's giving books and giving shopping- what's better? :-)
