Booking Through Thursday

What, if any, memorable or special book have you ever gotten as a present? Birthday or otherwise. What made it so notable? The person who gave it? The book itself? The “gift aura?”

I don’t get many books as presents. But I do get trade paperback comics which I enjoy. The most memorable book gift was from my brother who bought me an audio book of Bujold’s Cetaganda. Bujold is one of my favorite writers and audio books tend to be very expensive here. Thanks!
