According to wongaBlog (and after five years of blogging, he should know), it’s Buy A Friend A Book Week:

Celebrating BAFAB is easy. 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! 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, so they can spread the joy in turn.

I must confess that I am in no position to buy anyone a book, but if anyone fancied indulging me, here’s my Amazon wishlist. It’s short – it has to be, I’d spent the next month adding all the books I want if I spent any real time thinking about it!

  1. I have the Bryson book (well Husband does, but what’s mine is his, etc etc) and His Dark Materials trilogy (normal covers) if you want to borrow them. And why do you want a beginner’s book about pigs?

  2. Because it’s a highly rated book that would help fill in my knowledge gaps!
