Authors reflect on favorite books given as gifts

Jennifer Day askedĀ authors to write about books they’ve given or received as gifts. To quote Jennifer, “Our favorite gifts bind us to the givers through memory and meaning. With time, these books morph from presents into totems.” What meaningful memory will you be gifting to your loved ones this year?

  1. Well I agree sometimes the books given to us by someone else tend to be the ones that have the most meaning. From what I’ve learned the best way to get better at writing to to continually read.

  2. That is a really awesome list! I saw that you already mentioned someone, but my reading adventures as a child also began with The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe. I picked up that book and I was never without a book for the next 30 years. Also Charlotte’s Web was an early book I read and remembered.

    1. My childhood “first major impression” was Bambi. I got lost in that book. It was my first book that wasn’t illustrated. I almost got in trouble with my teacher because I didn’t want to put it down when reading time was over. Even then, I couldn’t stop talking about it. How can you think about addition and subtraction, when Bambi’s life hangs in the balance?
