Booking through buying a book for a friend

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

I usually buy books for my friends on any given occasion or otherwise too. Most rely on my judgement for good books. It depends on which friend and what taste. As for me, I can read most about anything. That can't be said for most people. For my best friend, I would go for travelogues. She loves those. Any book by Bill Bryson is ok for her. For another friend of mine, I would buy Brenda Joyce romances. She thrives on those. For that matter, any kind of romances sans pornography.

I have forgotten the number of copies of Alice in Wonderland, I have gifted to kids. Nowadays kids prefer Tolkiens, Rowling and C S Lewis, in no particular order. So I end up buying those authors too along with classics. Jane Austen never goes wrong!
