I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: if I ask for books for my birthday or for Christmas, it’s because that’s all I want, or at least that there’s nothing I want more. Sure, they’re not fancy or expensive, but I don’t want fancy or expensive things—and if I do, I’m not going to ask someone else for them (usually). But I already buy myself too many books, so asking for those is really just a way to enable my addiction further.
So…I guess use your judgment when buying me books. But of all the things I could be addicted to, books are probably one of the least bad, right? Right?by
