For this week’s post I’m highlighting a blog called The Books They Gave Me. Begun in June of last year, The Books They Gave Me (hereafter referred to as TBTGM) is a blog “In which we reflect on books given [to] us by loved ones”. The format is minimalist; just an image of the book cover and a paragraph or two by the submitter reflecting upon the gift and the giver. Despite this many of the posts are deeply personal, moving tales of shared passion and human understanding, as exemplified in the gift of a perfect book.
TBTGM is driven by user submissions, so if you’d like to contribute, you can go here to view the submission guidelines. Alternately, feel free to share your story here in the comments.
