That's right... it's Buy a Friend a Book Week! Here is the official "rules":
Celebrating BAFAB is easy. Just get yourself to a real-life or virtual book store during Buy a Friend a Book Week (the first weeks of January, April, July, and October) and, well, buy a friend a book! But here's the fun part: you can't buy your friend a book because it's their birthday or they just graduated or got engaged or had a baby or anything else. You have to give them a book for no good reason. In fact, this present out of the blue from you should shock the pants off of whomever you decide to give it to. And it'll make them happy. And that's the point: promote reading, promote friendships. Just make sure to let them know about Buy a Friend a Book Week, so they can spread the joy in turn. chanel handbags
As always, I'm offering a contest that will run until Saturday, October 6. Just leave a comment here with the title of the book you would like to win (up to a $20 value) and I will have a drawing on Sunday, October 7.
And, Happy BAFABW!
BTW, stop by our review site for some good ideas of books to read.
