Chapter Thirty-Six, in which is heard the Proclamation of Buy A Friend A Book Week


So it is that quarterly time of year again: Buy A Friend A Book (BAFAB) Week.

The premise behind this is everyone goes out, to their local independent bookstore we hope, and buys a book for a friend for no particular reason (other than to celebrate BAFAB). Now is not the time to give your socialist-minded boss a lofty tome explaining the virtues of the free market, or your mistress a book about love letters. Ideally, the gift of this book will be a complete and unexpected surprise to the recipient. Think Alice's Adventures in Wonderland for your drinking buddy, or 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea for your neighbor. You might even consider giving Grendel to your doctor's receptionist and make of her a new friend.

To find out more visit BAFAB.

  1. Do you have the book 10,000 Leagues Under the Sea in stock? I always wanted to read 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea but I am only certified to go half that far so I was incredibly excited to see I might have half a chance!
