Why I love Wednesdays: Gifted Books

Why I love Wednesdays is a weekly meme hosted by the fun blog, Reflections of a Bookaholic. It's a mid-week meme focusing on something loved about books or bookish. I do a lot of memes already that are general questions, but some of these themes and prompts are a bit different so thought it looked fun!

Gifted Books

Why I love...The Following Books!

Honestly not many people at all buy me books. I usually get the ones I want when I want them. Otherwise they just don't know what I want most of the time. My best friend buys a lot of books we both want, sometimes before I do, and let's me borrow them. I return the favor.

I have to say the best book gift I got wasn't a single book, but was a box of books. I was a teenager and can't remember the exact year, but I opened a present under the tree and it was a big cardboard box filled with books. My mother had bought the entire box for $5.00 at a yard sale and it was filled with a huge amount of YA books in different series, as well as a few romances and misc. These were some of the coolest books ever at the time. Going through each one was amazing. I was so excited and still remember this as one of the best Christmas gifts ever!

My mother also bought me a Pride and Prejudice book safe for my birthday this year. It's not exactly a book, but very bookish. Actually this entire birthday was awesome for book-related gifts. Here is the blog post with pictures and details.

My other favorite book gift was the ESV study bible. I had been wanting it for months but couldn't see how I'd be able to afford it any time soon. My fiance bought me the brown version for a birthday gift, and we also purchased the chapter tabs and a bible highlighter to go with it. I love this bible!

That's all I can really think of for a specific book -related gift. Fun question and recollection time these week :)
