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?"
This is really a difficult question. Because I am a reader, I get books as gifts all the time. I'm always happy to receive a book that I've been looking forward to reading. It's also nice when you are gifted a book that you've never heard about before from someone who knows you tastes and thinks you'll like it.
My only problem is that I'm not coming up with any good examples for this post. I guess I must not have a most memorable book gift.
