Thursday is the first day of April — so you know what that means! It’s time for Buy A Friend A Book Week, which happens four times a year — the first weeks of January, April, July and October. In January I gifted my friend and coworker Sandy with Richard Yates’ Revolutionary Road, a book we’d both been talking about in preparation for seeing the film (which I never got around to doing, by the way).
This go ’round? I’m not quite sure yet. I haven’t chosen the “friend” in question, nor have I settled precisely on a title! I know one I would grab again for Sandy, but I have to spread the BAFAB love — and choose another lucky recipient. I’m narrowing the field as we speak, so everyone be nice to me — I don’t want to unceremoniously eliminate you!
It’s a great way to make people happy and spread our mutual love of literature! I know money is tight, but does anyone else have plans to participate this coming month?
