Recently I was checking out stacks, and stacks of books to a mother and daughter, and they were talking about their book choices ..."these are for Uncle Frank, these are for Grandma, some magazines for cousin Lynn...." I suddenly realized they were getting books for their holiday guests--what a cool idea! When I questioned them they said they always borrowed books for their guests--fiction, non-fiction, biographies, magazines-- depending on the tastes of their guests. They wanted their guests to feel at home, and since they were avid readers it just made sense. Okay, maybe Martha Stewart had already thought of this, but I had not. I am definitely going to steal this idea next time I have overnight guests. Be a good host, visit your library.
