Jellicoe Road by Melina Marchetta or The Queen’s Thief series by Megan Whalen Turner 🙂
I love to give friends and family chicken soup for the soul books. I tend to chose ones that fit what they are currently going through in their lives.
Surprisingly small number of comments considering the prize……
Also, I oppose the question. There are too many variables regarding giving books away. Such as the respective age of the recipient, and the reason for the gift-giving.
Thanks for the giveaway! I like to give people any book that is their favorite type. 😉
I always read my books gently – they look like new when I am done. Then, I leave them in places where people exchange books (like in the laundry room, by the mail boxes), so that people can enjot those books too.
The Geography of Bliss
I tailor the book to the person’s age and preferences, giftcards are always good too. Thanks for the giveaway!
Oh my, there are a lot of books I like to give because I think they’re so great! One of them is “Ender’s Game”. Really great, approachable science fiction 🙂
I like to give some of the books written by Mitch Albom to others. He always uplifts my heart!
I tend to give others books of their interests as gift: my man likes history books, my mom likes real life story books, my dad likes religious books, etc.
I tend to do giftcards rather than books just because I never know what ones people already have or may have borrowed from the library
The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, it’s one of my favorites!
This year it’s Haatchi and Little B
I don’t really have a favorite book to give to adults, but to kids I always like to give A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L’Engle.
I don’t give adults books but rather gift cards to book stores. Everyone has different taste in books and I would rather not waste money. But I do love to give kids books. I usually go after my childhood faves like The Giving Tree, If You Give a Mouse a Cookie, or the Scary Stories books.
Tough question! It depends on what the person I’m buying for is most interested in reading.
A book that is suited to their personality and age.
That is a tough question. Usually, I go with an Amazon gc, so they can get what they want! However, so that I am following the rules, in answer to your question, I think I would honestly just ask them for a list of books they want and surprise them with one of them. Unless it was for my best bud, who I can pick out a book for easily, I would want them to get something they would really want!
I don’t usually gift people books. A lot of my friends don’t read in their spare time.
I don’t gift books. Most of the people I know don’t read much, and it’s very difficult to choose a book for someone else when you don’t know their tastes well. I myself have received good books as gifts, but I’m an avid reader and I’ve already read them:)
My favorite book to give to other is “The Way of the Owl: Succeeding with Integrity in a Conflicted World” by Frank Rivers
Any of the Lux novels by Jennifer Armentrout 🙂
Nalini Singh’s Angel’s Blood, it’s the 1st book in my favorite series 🙂
I don’t know if I have a specific book I give. I like to give people things that go with what they like.
I usually don’t give adults books, because tastes vary so widely. For kids, I like to give Dr. Seuss books.
I like to recommend Dorothy Sayers to people. I’d give everyone a copy of Gaudy Night if I could.
Fiction is too chancy, so instead, I pick a cookbook that matches whatever I know about their tastes in food. I’ve found that just about everyone likes cookbooks. Even if they don’t cook, they can look at the yummy photos.
I’ve never given a book to anyone, but I’d say one they asked for.
I don’t give random books, but if I did I’d pick Harry Potter because it’s something everyone should read.
I like to give giftcards, that way I know they can buy the book or books that interest them.
I prefer to give gift cards that way they can get the book or any other gift they like. If I had to pick a book I would have to do something that goes with there personality and age.
I’d like to give one of my photography/prayer books or my husbands prayer/addictions books to others. God bless!
I prefer to give gift cards, it’s easier.
Thanks for the giveaway!
I think the only books I ever gifted someone were the hobbit books to my younger brother, but only because he asked for them. People usually gift me books I don’t like so I’d rather give a gift card.
Game of Thrones series
I’ve never given books to others for gifts so i’m not sure.
I usually would give a gift card so they can pick out their own books.
Thanks for the chance to win and Happy Holidays!
Leaving Time by Jodi Picoult.
I don’t have one favorite book; I usually try to match my gifts to my friends’ book preferences, but I recommend The Fault in Our Stars a lot.
My favorite book to recommend or gift is Outlander by Diana Gabaldon. Merry Christmas 🙂
Depends on their taste.
I like to give the Chicken Soup for the Soul books. Merry Christmas!
My favorite book to give to others is a blank journal so they can make a list of what books they want to buy and read or check out of the library and read 🙂
It really depends on the person, but I love giving trivia books and memoirs about animals. 🙂
I like to give people Little Women. My favorite as a kid.
I don’t usually give books but if I did I’d give one of my favorites or a gift card! Thanks!
My favorite book as a kid was “Chicka Chicka Boom Boom” so I tend to gift copies of that book to kids since it is a lesser known book. I also love the Chicken Soup for the Soul books and often gift these books to adult friends since there are so many types it’s easy to find a theme that would fit the person I’m gifting it to. These books are so inspiring and I’ve only received positive feedback from the giftees.
I was an ESL elementary teacher. I often gave books to my students because they did not have any and many were migrant families. The most requested were the Avenger comic books. They would read them with parents, siblings, grandparents and Aunts and Uncles. This way the entire family could work on their English and it was not a “baby” book.
I usually ask the person what book they would like. It’s hard to buy for people because everyone has different tastes. Thanks!
I usually don’t gift books, tastes differ and all. But any of J.M. Darhower’s book I would definitely dare to gift 🙂
I will gift a book I know they like or have put on their wishlist.
usually something they ask for
I know this is childish but ‘Where the Wild Things Are?’, I give it to all my nieces and nephews 🙂
I always try to get people to read the Fever series by Karen Maire Moning and the Hollows series by Kim Harrison.
I suppose that depends on whether they like to read or not and then what type of books they like to read. If they aren’t a big reader, I’d give them some type of coffee table book or a book by a celebrity or someone that they know and like. If they are a big reader then I would pick something from the genre they like the most.
I don’t really have a specific book I give away but I have gifted The Hobbit to a few friends.
Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi:) I love the whole series really and that is the first one.I.thought about.
I recommend the Game of Thrones books. Happy New Year!
I like to share the bible with others.
At Christmas I do like to give books with a holiday theme, but it really depends on the person. Thanks for the great giveaway. Happy Holidays!
I would ask them what book they wanted.
Usually I find out what people like, and base what I give them on their likes.
