Musing Monday's - Book Giving

Musing Monday's is hosted by Miz B at Should Be Reading. This week’s musing:

Will you be buying books for the holidays, this year? If so, for whom, and why?

Why yes; yes I will be buying books for the holidays this year.  I will definitely be buying books for my daughters as I always do.  They know they can ask Mommy for books at any time and get them - to be completely honest.  My girls know that I want them to be readers and they bat their lashes and ask sweetly for a new book and I'm completely defenseless to say no.  Anyway, they hhave recently gotten into the American Girl books and they both want some of the series for Christmas.  They'd love to have the dolls too but oh my, the dolls are expensive.  In my opinion, over prices.  So, yes to the books and probably not to the dolls. 

I may also buy something for my husband but he's more difficult to shop for in regard to books.  He's not much of a book reader and therefore super selective about what he will read.  So, if I see something I know he'll love (and actually read) then I'll pick something up for him, too.

That's pretty much it for book gift buying.  Not a lot of people in my in-person life are readers so there aren't a lot of people for book gifting.

  1. it is hard to pick books for someone else...but it is wonderful when you succeed and they love it.
