International Book Giving Day

February 14th is not only a day for love & lovers, it's also the International Book Giving Day!

Here's a copy/paste from the FB page of this community:

"Join us in celebrating International Book Giving Day!

1. Give a book to a friend or relative;

2. Wrap up a box of children's books that your kids have outgrown and get them in the hands of children who could really use a book or two; or

3. Leave a good book in a waiting room or lobby."

How cool is that? Books, in every possible form, are what make me feel most secure and comfortable...

Prayer Book 3

Little boy and the magic book

Autumn leaves, book and cup of tea on wooden table

I have only 2 collections of books here, will think of more in the future!

Old, Old Books & Grand Libraries

My question is: if you're to give someone a book, which would you give?

I already gifted The Little Prince 5 times in the past; it's obviously my favorite book - enjoy my favorite passage from it :)

The writing in the book is not Arabic, it's Syriac, like Aramaic.

Wow, if I gave someone a book (and I regularly do), which one would it be? Hmm, to make them laugh "The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy", to make them Just "Cry Freedom", to make them appreciate this world "Collapse", and to return them to childhood "The Hungry Caterpillar".

Nice idea Eliane ! Not really sure what book I'd offer to someone, i guess it depends on the person I'm giving it to...
