July 29, 2008 2:54am CST
Me and my fiance were talking earlier about my mother and her birthday which is August 31st,and we were discussing what to get her for her birthday,she is getting a bit up there in age,and she loves to read and she will often go to bed early or lay in the living room and read,and she enjoys reading books so much that more often then not she will go through books at a fast rate and her favorite author is Danielle Steel but I think she has all of her books,she has also started reading James Patterson,and Nora Roberts books,which I believe she orders through a book club and I think she got into those because she has all the Danielle Steel books,so I am not sure if a book would be a good idea,and I am confused about what to get her,and I am about out of ideas unless we get her one of Danielle Steels movies or something but I am not sure if she would watch it since she does not watch movies very often, and if we ask her what she wants for her birthday she will tell us not to get anything and save our money,but me and my fiance really want to get her something,Does anyone out there in mylotland have any ideas of what to get her?What would you get your mother for her birthday?What would you get a friends mother for her birthday?Is there anything that I should not consider getting her? Could you give my fiance and I suggestions on what to get her together something that would be suitable for a mother in law as well as a motherI am in desperate need of of help on this matter and I will appreciate all responses I get to this discussion,and just like with all my other discussions I will appreciate anyone who approaches this discussion in a serious matter,because to me this is very serious,I will comment on all responses I get,in a matter that I see fit depending on how lengthy and how much quality is put into each discussion,have a great day.

I hope that you get many quality responses to this discussion baby as I know we could both use a few ideas. I am not sure what to get her myself other then something to do with books, and that is very hard to do as she has most if no all Danielle Steel books, she's not a avid fan of James Patterson nor is she of Nora Roberts and the new book by another author we are not sure if she really enjoys.

I also I hope that I get many quality filled responses to this discussion,and I know we both could use some ideas,and yeah it is very hard to go with books,since she has all the Danielle Steel books,and since she is not an avid fan of James Patterson or Nora Roberts and you are right we do not even know if she is enjoying the new book by another author,I love you with all my heart and soul,thanks for responding,have a great day,good luck in your life,and Happy Posting Baby.

Hiesince your mum likes Danielle Steel, why not find out if any books of the author in limited edition or any special published thick covered ones by her. Then this might sound too bizarre...lol.perhaps you could email her for a favor and get her to sign the book along with some birthday wishes in it I am sure your mum will be excited and happy to have her favorite author wishing her. It is just some idea that I thought might be fun. Cheers and best wishes.

Yeah that is an interesting idea of seeing if there are any of her books that are limited edition or if any have a special cover,and it is not bizarre but it would probably be difficult to get her to sign one of her books,but I liked the idea so I went to her website and sent her an email asking her how much it would cost to get one of her books signed for my moms birthday,I figured it was worth a shot,and I think my mom probably would be excited having a book signed by her favorite author, thanks for the suggestions my friend,thanks for responding,have a great day,good luck in your life,and Happy Posting.
