Great Books Week – Friday – Special Gift

October 4–10 is Great Books Week, and the National Association of Independent Writers and Editors (NAIWE)  is hosting a blog tour about books to celebrate.  The prompt for today is “When I want to give someone a special gift, I give them [name of book] because…”

This prompt is very misleading as it changes so frequently.  My current favorite, and it will ring true with many but will not with other readers, is to give friends who are turning 50 Jimmy Buffet’s A Pirate Looks at 50.  Granted, this does mean that my friends are turning 50.  I think I would give this book to others also.  I absolutely love Buffet’s writing style.  On top of that, his look at 50 is so unique.  When many people are feeling life is coming to a close, the book makes the reader realize that it is just beginning.
