Booking Through Thursday
Booking Through Thursday has this:
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?
Ahhh, this one is very easy. Since Banned Book Week Starts Tomorrow I would definitely buy a friend a banned book. The banned book would have to be well written. For anyone preparing for a big exam, ie GRE, MCAT, LSAT, Praxis etc it would be "To Kill a Mockingbird" by Harper Lee. I could also purchase "The Grapes of Wrath" by John Steinbeck (for those of us from Oklahoma) or "The Catcher in the Rye" by JD Salinger (for parents of teenagers) or "A Light in the Attic" by Shel Silverstein (for parents of elementary school aged kiddos) or "The House of Spirits" by Isabelle Allende for us old housewives!
Ahhh, nothing like reading a banned book . . . very fun!
