Buy a Friend a Book Week (Apr 06)

It's BUY A FRIEND A BOOK week again! Not familiar with this concept? Here's how it works...

The rules are simple -- 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 (or e-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.

And yes, some lucky friend will be receiving a book for no good reason in her mailbox sometime this week -- but I'm not telling who. It's a surprise! ,-)

I really need to do this, this year. I've never done it before. Books are almost better than chocolate and who doesn't like chocolate? ;-)
