What, if any, memorable or special book have you ever gotten as a present? Birthday or otherwise. What made it so notable? The person who gave it? The book itself? The “gift aura?”
Hamburger is not a book person, and despite many a book being placed on Christmas lists over the past 16 years, he has yet to buy me one...even though he's the one who asks for the Christmas list in the first place. However, last year he finally heard me when I said there was nothing wrong with gift cards as presents...in fact, I love gift cards. So I got a Barnes and Noble gift card instead of a pair of slippers. Trust me, it was very memorable and special.
