Question of the Day:

What was the last book you bought for someone?

    A Superman graphic novel for the hubby. I forget which one it was, though. That same day we bought Nicholas a Super Why! book. I think we buy Nicholas at least one book a week.

    Dad and I both love birds, and I have a really cool Birds of Missouri book, so I bought him the Birds of Oklahoma book for Christmas. He liked it.

    • Shannon said,

      Was that the book by Stan Tekiela, by any chance? I love birds too, and he is known for his books on birds for each state. I have his Birds of Alabama book.

      • Emily said,

        Yep, that’s the one! I love those books.

      • Shannon said,

        I really enjoy mine, which was also a Christmas gift. I actually have it at work with me today so that I can page through it in my down time.

    Either Where the Wild Things Are for one of my nephews, or some book on mules for my dad. I have insistently loaned The Four Agreements out repeatedly tho. My first copy (which was a sentimentally valuable graduation gift) is currently lost. No one that I might have loaned it to can find it-lesson learned there. But I think that book is one of the most valuable reads ever, so I hope whoever has it passes it on.

    • Shannon said,

      I guess “return all books that are loaned to you” is not one of the four agreements.

    • Nicole said,

      Did you really give your dad a book about mules? That is so awesome!

    I bought my nephew a bunch of books for Christmas. He’s particularly fond of the Cars book with the attached Magna-doodle. His parents approved the toy as well. They’ll only accept toys that stimulate his intellectual and physical development.

    • nattya61 said,

      Isn’t that any toy, though? I mean, give a kid a box and he’ll turn it into a drum, a hat, a boat, a house, etc. Just wondering what type of toys they think don’t are stimulating.

    Ender’s Game by Orson Scott Card and the Complete Works of Edgar Allan Poe. I bought these at the same time while Christmas shopping. Ender’s Game was for a family member who loves sci fi and has never read this book, and I recommend this novel to any sci fi fan who has never read it.

    The Complete Works of Edgar Allan Poe was for my 12 year old niece. Last year she notified me that she “reads and writes dark poetry” and talked about how she likes Poe’s writing. I remember what it was like to be 12 years old and reading and writing dark poetry, and when I found a really nice, fancy, leatherbound edition of his complete works, I figured she would like it.
    When she opened this present, she stopped opening presents altogether to page through it and read. Nothing makes you feel as good about a gift as that.

    Sweet SOTD! Got the new album on rotation. That is all I wanted to say.

    I rarely buy books for ppl…usually just pawn off things I’ve already read. Usually nonfiction–I gave my sister a grammar book two weeks ago.

    I’ve not purchased it yet, but I heard a little Jonah Bean wants a book for his birthday. πŸ™‚

    • Emily said,

      Yes he does! πŸ™‚ Jonah Bean loooooooves books!

    Some vegan cookbooks for my lady. She’s all about it, so I guess that means I will have to be all about it–at least some of the time. No way am I giving up porterhouse steaks and BBQ ribs. No way!
