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?”
One of the most meaningful book gifts I have recieved was a deluxe leather-bound edition of Dickens'. It is a nice book, but what made it special was that my Aunt got it for me for no occasion. She saw it in the bookstore and knew I would like it, so she suprised me with it.
