I always see advertisements suggesting books as gift ideas, but when was the last time you received a book as a gift? (Not a gift card but a book.) I enjoy reading but I think that might be why people hesitate to give me a book as a gift. They’re not sure if I’ve already read it.
If memory serves me right, the last book that was given to me as a gift was Escaping into the Open: The Art of Writing True by Elizabeth Berg. It’s a non-fiction book about creativity and writing exercises. A fellow writer gave it to me a few years ago because she found it helpful. I did, too!
