We always talk about the books that WE want. Let's turn it on its head. What books have you given other people lately?
The last books I remember buying are Christmas presents.
For my father: What It Is like to Go to War by Karl Marlantes because I got him Matterhorn at a library sale and he really enjoyed it.
For my mother: Attachments by Rainbow Rowell (because of a review by Catie from Readventurer) and another book I cannot remember.
Most people I know in real life don't read YA or they don't read fantasy so it's hard to gift books (I still do it but it takes quite a bit of work). I also bought "loaning copies of" The Knife of Never Letting Go by Patrick Ness and Jellicoe Road by Melina Marchetta that never returned to me. I loaned them to some teenage Girl Scouts I worked with because they had good taste in books and those are excellent books. I thought I hada 50/50 chance of getting them back and if not I was releasing quality novels into the wild.
