This weeks Question:
We always talk about books that WE want. Let’s turn it on its head. What books have you given other people lately?
First of all, I LOVE the new Feature and Follow Friday Button! Isn’t it gorgeous?!

 My book BFF, Alice, had a recent birthday. She’s a Twilight fanatic, but she’s also got a lot of Twilight merchandise, so I had to search hard to figure out what to get her. She loves to read, but she’s a slow reader and I feel like I already get on her case about finishing novels and bombard her with lists of more YOU-HAVE-TO-READ-THESE-RIGHT-NOW suggestions, so I didn’t want to buy her more YA books.

I got her the ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY Twilight: The Complete Journey, which had basically everything about the Twilight franchise ever. I also got her The Twilight Saga: The Complete Film Archive: Memories, Mementos, and Other Treasures from the Creative Team Behind the Beloved Motion Pictures. Fortunately, she didn’t already have them and she loved both of the books. It’s not often that I buy books of any kind for people, but I knew my friend would totally appreciate the books. Plus, they complimented her Twilight collection and it was totally worth it to see her face light up when she opened them. I seriously wish I knew more readers so I could always gift amazing books and get awesome reactions like that.

Even though I’m not a Twilight fanatic myself, the two books I got were actually pretty awesome. The film archive had some of the coolest mementos inside of it and the magazine had giant posters of all the Entertainment Weekly covers.
