in the spirit of celebrating all things bookish, buy a friend a book week urges us to hie ourselves to the nearest bookstore and do just that. said friend need not be celebrating a birthday or anniversary, they need not be depressed or otherwise in need of cheering up. the only criteria is that they are indeed a friend, and would welcome being gifted with a book.
lovely idea, isn’t it? i hope my friends are reading this (winks).
so, in keeping with BAFAB (oh my, i don’t like that acronym, but there you have it) i invite you to become my friend by leaving a comment on this post. on January 13, 2008, one friendly commenter will be chosen (completely at random and without prejudice) to receive a brand new copy of this, my current top of the stack book.
it’s good to have friends, isn’t it?
