  FF 2013Button 300x300 Feature & Follow #137


Q: We always talk about books that WE want. Let's turn it on its head. What books have you given other people lately?

America Again: Re-becoming the Greatness We Never Weren't This is the book I got Hubby for Valentine's Day! Hubby primarily reads graphic novels, but it's hard to give him those as presents because only he can keep track of all of the series he's following and which ones he'll need next. So I went with something I knew he didn't have and would probably get a kick out of. Steven Colbert is pretty amusing, and while I have no plans to read this myself, it's fun to have hubby tell me about it.


  1. Yeah, this isn't my kind of read but I think my husband could like this one too.

  2. I wish my hubby was a reader, but alas, he's not. In fact, the entire 15 years we've been together he's read ONE book and that was because we had an ice storm and had no power for five days and he had nothing else to do. He read Clive Cussler's, Sahara, and he enjoyed it but I couldn't get him to read anything else. Thanks for stopping by this week!

    My man loves to read graphic novels too! He's currently reading Fables, while I really love Fairest. :)

  5. I love a husband that shares the passion of reading mine does too! Thanks for stopping by Old Follower GFC and Linky so I subscribed RSS feed Have a great weekend

  6. I'm not really curious about the movie (Beautiful Creatures) though, because sometimes the movie tie-ins ruin the book or deviate from the story, and I usually like the book more than the movie.
