^ In the past year, I realized that my sister and I read the same exact type of books, so I feel confident she will like the books I am loading on her PW, which is a Xmas present. I had to rebuy the ones I have in English, since she only reads in German, so that kind of sucks.

Otherwise, I agree, better not to give specific books unless you know it's the next in a series they are already reading, or if it's on their wishlist.

My nephew got me a Casual Vacancy and was so excited he could not wait to tell me - which is good, because now I have until Xmas to practice my "excited" face, since I had no interest in reading that book.

It is so messed up to give somebody who is not religious bibles as so-called presents. That's like giving a kid who hates maths a math work book as a present. Seriously?!
