My mom is planning a shower for me in August and has been asking about details (food, registry, etc.). Being book lover, I was thinking about requesting that everyone bring a book instead of including a greeting card. Doesn't have to be an expensive hardback picture book or anything, we just want to build a library for our baby and thought this might be a great idea. If they want to include a thoughtful note in the book itself, that would be lovely, or just a handwritten note that I could paste into the book or add to a scrapbook.
Is this reasonable? Have you ever done anything like this or attended a shower where this was requested? What do you all think?
I don't remember seeing this in any of the previous posts (please correct me if I'm wrong!), so I thought I would ask.
