This week’s Monday Question by Libromanie is:
Do you still get books as a present?
Most of my blogger friends complain about their bookish wishes being ignored and often, I hear that someone doesn’t get books as a present anymore because he or she would already have enough – as if that’s even possible!
And then, there’s me and apparently, I’m the lucky one. I pretty much get books ONLY! Especially my parents are overjoyed when I present them with the whishlist for the current Christmas and birthday season. They prefer giving something physical instead of money and I make it incredibly easy for them. I usually get 80% books, 15% DVDs (also on my wishlist) and 5% other stuff. Most times, even that other stuff turns out to be bookish – like an additional board for my shelf or a felt bookjacket. My aunt and some of my friends also still give me books.
Naturally, I often hear that I have too many books already and no space left. But instead of stopping buying me more books, they’d rather give me an additional shelf and help me rearrange my room. I might just have the best parents in the world!
