A question of presents.
What, if any, memorable or special book have you ever gotten as a present? Birthday or otherwise. What made it so notable? The person who gave it? The book itself? The “gift aura?”
So i've gotten plenty of books as presents. Most recently, after my birthday in July R bought me The Little Book of Atheist Spirituality. It isn't so much the book itself but that he got me a birthday present at all. It made me feel so nice. So that's a person answer.
A few years ago my mom bought me the first 3 Harry Potter books for Christmas. This was before Goblet of Fire had come out. That was nice because my mom pegged me perfectly; I loved them immediately.
I'm actually scrolling through my librarything list and recognizing which were gifts. But as for meaningful gifts, the ones i've listed are tops.
