Are you in the same boat? Do you have a friend who likes to read? Do you know what this person likes to get into? Is it murder mysteries? Maybe poems? Maybe self-help books? Perhaps literary novels?
Probably in some cases, like me, you don’t really know.
If you don’t, playing it safe may be the best option.
Maybe a gift card might be in order. I think I’ll head over to Barnes & Noble in Newport and just do that or maybe be super lazy and go to Amazon.com on my computer.
I know what you’re thinking. Sending a gift card or—god forbid, a check or cash—tells your friend that you put no thought into the gift at all, but actually when it comes to books, your friends are going to appreciate picking out their own titles. They’ll love you more for it.
Or at least this is what I’m counting on.
