Books Make Great Gifts!

Do you think books make great gifts? I DO! And so do these celebrities :) Do you share the same opinion as them? Hear what they have to say. My favourites are Jon Stewart's and Maya Angelou's ;)

I usually give books as gifts to all those near and dear to me (Unless they tell me not to haha)! Because I think a good book can make a difference in one's life! When I buy a book for a friend, I either buy them a favourite book of mine, or a book I think they'd enjoy or a book they could learn something from.

These are some of those which I can remember:
1) Eat, Pray, Love by Elizabeth Gilbert: to a friend who was struggling with a divorce.
2) Horseradish by Lemony Snicket: A book that I enjoyed reading and thought he might like it too
3) Falling Leaves by Adeline Yen Mah: to a friend who loves family drama and thought the best are the HK drama series, until she read this book.
4) Middlesex by Jeffrey Eugenides: to someone who feels she's alone in this world.

What about you? Do you tend to give books as gifts too?

YES I do! If I find a good book on a shelf, i can't bear to see it there. I buy it and think of who to give it to. Hahaha... I only wish some of my book recipients were as keen on the book as I am earnest in giving them. Sigh.
