Never heard of it? It started in 2005 by Debra Hamel. Check out the website for information.
Here’s a quote from the site to give you an idea of what it’s all about: “Celebrating BAFAB is easy. Just get yourself to a real-life or virtual book store during Buy a Friend a Book Week (the first weeks of January, April, July, and October) and, well, buy a friend a book! But here’s the fun part: you can’t buy your friend a book because it’s their birthday or they just graduated or got engaged or had a baby or anything else. You have to give them a book for no good reason.”
Sounds like fun. I plan to participate and bug my friends to do so as well. Guess I’ll have to visit my favorite bookstore, Wise Owl Bookstore. Geez, what a chore.
P.S. If you prefer ebooks, visit the Book View Cafe site to find some cheap reads.
