.....because how COULD I miss this question????

Buy a Friend a Book Week is October 1-7 (as well as the first weeks of January, April, and July). During this week, you’re encouraged to buy a friend a book for no good reason. Not for their birthday, not because it’s a holiday, not to cheer them up–just because it’s a book.

What book would you choose to give to a friend and why?

What a lovely idea! I think you ALL should send a book my way. And I'll trust your judgement on what to send me!

No, really, wouldn't that be fun! I wish I could afford it, but at the moment, I'm flat broke.

Let's see. I think I will send out (virtually, alas!) Prince of Foxes by Samuel Shellabarger. Just because everyone needs to read an old fashioned, historical, love and honor book now and again.

If I were really rich, I'd send you all Kristin Lavransdatter, but that's obviously going to be in a different life--one where there's actually money to spare!

And for any of you that look excessively happy, I'll send A Fine Balance by Rohinton Mistry. One of the best books I've read, but it will chew you up and spit you out. You shouldn't read it in a troubling time of your life.


Now, what are you gonna send me?



Have you read Shadowplay by Claire Asquith?

There's one to throw on your list.
