Today is Buy a Friend a Book Day! Lisa K., of Lisa Ks Book Reviews, is promoting the event on Facebook. The concept is easy. On August 31, 2014 buy a friend a book! You could have bought the book earlier to give today. Or you can buy a book today and give it to your friend when you are able. The recipient doesn't need to be a friend either. He or she could be a family member, acquaintance, or a perfect stranger!
I think this idea is wonderful. It supports reading, friendship, and promotes the authors we love as well! I'm giving a few books away. I have one already, which I'll be mailing to my friend on Tuesday. I'll be giving an e-book to another friend today. I also plan on buying a "real" book or two and giving them to another friend...or two. And then there's you...my readers. I will mail a book, or send an e-book, to one of you as well. If you'd like a book from me all you have to do is comment on this post and tell me if you'd prefer me to mail you a "real" book (US readers only) or an e-book (any country, including US). Also let us know if you knew about this holiday prior to reading my post and if you plan on buying a friend a book. Also feel free to talk about your favorite types of books. Let me know your e-mail address so that I can contact you should Random.org choose your comment as the one winner.
