 A Book is a Gift You can Open Again and Again– said Garrison Keillor.

Do you agree?

I agree with Garrison Keillor.

In the past I have received books as gifts.

To mention a few,  I received book gifts — English Translations of Pattinathar Hymns and Bharatiyar’s Poems — from Sekkizar Adippodi Dr T N Ramachandran, when he visited London some years ago.

I open them again and again to read or to quote them in my articles.

Why don’t you buy my books and see whether you will be able to Open them Again and Again.

Why don’t you give them as Gifts to your friends?
