Buy a Friend a Book Week is October 1-7 (as well as the first weeks of January, April, and July). During this week, you’re encouraged to buy a friend a book for no good reason. Not for their birthday, not because it’s a holiday, not to cheer them up–just because it’s a book.

What book would you choose to give to a friend and why?

And, if you’re feeling generous enough–head on over to Amazon and actually send one on its way!

Well, the Lankhmar book came from print yesterday… I’m a selfish bastard so I would buy a couple of those to give away. (I’ve translated the Finnish translation of Leiber’s Swords and Deviltry.) However, I’m currently unemployed so, sadly, that’s not going to happen.

A translated paperback costs here in Finland aroud 20-25 euros new and English paperbacks costs from 7 to 12 euros mostly depending on their thickness.
