The Guilt-Free Gift
A reader's tastes are peculiar. Choosing books to read is like making your way down a remote and winding path. Your stops on that path are always idiosyncratic. One book leads to another and another the way one thought leads to another and another. My type of reader is the sort who burrows through the stacks in the bookstore or the library (or the Web site — stacks are stacks), yielding to impulse and instinct.
Love this section from the New York Times article "A Guilt-Free Gift Certificate." It's so true that you can't really guess what books some people will like or why. A gift certificate is a good choice, in my opinion.
