Let’s Talk Bookish: Books as Gifts

Hello and happy Sunday! This post is a few days late, but I’m so excited for the topic. There were so many amazing participants this week, and I always love seeing so many bloggers participating in LTB! Anyways, let’s get into this discussion about books as gifts!

Let’s Talk Bookish is a weekly bookish meme created by Rukky @ Eternity Books and has been hosted by me since April of 2022! Each Friday, there is a discussion topic for bloggers to write about. This week’s topic is books as gifts (suggested by Hannah @ Hannah’s Library).

Do books make good gifts? Do you ever give or receive books as gifts?

I think that books make great gifts! You can give someone any type of book, and if you know someone who’s a reader, then a book will be a perfect gift!

I get books as gifts a lot because everyone in my life knows I love to read!! And I give books as gifts a ton. I have lots of friends who like to read, and I love picking books for people, especially when its ones I specifically think they’ll like.

Would you rather receive a book from your wish list or be surprised?

I don’t have a wish list, and I love being surprised with new books! Although my parents usually know about books that I really really want, since I talk about books nonstop. For my birthday this year, I got a copy of Foul Lady Fortune from my mom, and that was one that I’ve been wanting since it came out, so that was more of a wish list category one. I honestly don’t think I have a preference for being surprised or wish list. Both are fun!

Would you expect someone to read a book you got them right away?

Definitely not! I try to, but I definitely don’t always read books I get as gifts right away. And, I wouldn’t expect anyone else to immediately jump into a book or anything. I do love talking about books with people when they do read them, if it’s a book I’ve read before. That’s always really fun!!

  1. Mine isnt listed, must’ve not linked properly 😅 here’s the link: https://books-and-dachshunds.com/lets-talk-bookish-%e2%9e%99-books-as-gifts/

    So far out of the two I read, i’m the only one favorising the voucher instead 😅 maybe because my brain can give me so many barriers (no fantasy- or very light for exemple), and im also a mood reader. So unless you know for sure what my taste is like, or I gave you a specific book to buy, I do prefer the money to pick it myself :p

    1. For some reason I haven’t been getting notifications from your posts – what platform is your blog on? Maybe that’s where the problem is. But thanks for letting me know, and thanks for participating!!

      And that makes sense – I definitely know my own reading tastes best!


  2. I think books make great gifts, too! I know people are always worried about getting me a book I’ve already read, but that logic works with any type of gift. Doesn’t stop me from getting ten pairs of socks every year, lol!
