This would be the "after Christmas post." If I was given books for Christmas.
Not since Borders closed.
I did get a book-shaped keepsake box, I love. It came with a "Because I hear you read." Which turns out is something you don't really want to hear when being given what looks like a large text book.
I was also given really warm socks with a "I know you like socks."
Both very true and when it comes to giving me gift I think those are two main ideas to keep in mind. I read and I like fun socks.
And my mom did give me a book:
Because we went to the store and I said "Hey, Oscar Wilde quotes!"
"Because I like both quotes and Oscar Wilde." And even better quotes by Oscar Wilde.
