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?”
Out of all the books I've received in my life, I guess the one I cherish the most is an old History Textbook my mother gave me a few years ago. Its small, the leather is cracking, the pages are very thin, but I love it. It was published ages ago, and it was my Grandpa's History text for six grades.
