It is my flatmates birthday soon so I am trying to decide what to get her. I really like buying books for people because they are lovely presents.

Firstly I am getting her Charles Darwin - Origin of Species because she is a biology student and likes animals. Then I am going to get her The Shock of The Fall by Nathan Filer because its my favourite book and I think she will like the story. Only issue is for one of them I have ordered a second hand copy that is good quality because a new version was out of my budget.

It said it was good condition. Will she be offended with a second hand present? I don't want to upset her on her birthday but I couldn't afford the new version If you can't tell I get quite stressed about whether I accidentally upset other people or not

I doubt it. I wouldn’t mind and I’ll definitely understand the reason why you couldn’t buy a new one. It’s really the thought that counts tbh x
Don’t stress much x

Those sound like lovely, thoughtful presents. I'd be thrilled to receive anything like that.

If it bothers her, then she’s not worth bothering about.

She studies Biology and you want to buy her a book about Biology for her birthday?

I guess you are right. I only know her because we are in the same flat. She seems quite posh as always gets new stuff so I guess I am worried but you are right, if she doesn’t like it then I will just move on.

Darwin’s book is amazing and everyone should read it not just biology students. I know she hasn’t read it and she likes the subject so I thought it was a good idea. Maybe not ...

The only reason I'd be upset is because I don't like receiving birthday presents. And I don't like Darwin.

I'm always happy to receive books as gifts.
I prefer used copies, environmentally friendly and cost less.
