I'm genuniely curious about this. If you did NOT register for books nor did you ask showers guests to bring a book, did you not get a lot of books?
I didn't register or ask people to bring a book, and I have a HUGE collection of baby books. This is really the main reason why I don't understand why guests need to be asked to bring a book!
I've never been to a shower where books weren't given - but the guests were never asked to give them. Many just did as a part of their gift.
so- I'm just curious if this isn't the norm. Do a lot of moms find they didn't get any books so that's why it's necessary to ask people to do this?
