When deciding which book to buy, whether as a gift for someone or for yourself, below are tips to remember:

Buy only the best books since you will only read a few hundred in your lifetime. When possible, seek a recommendation first.

Don't fret excessively over the price, since the cost of a book is always small if it affects your life for good.

Buy to preserve the truth for your family or some deserving friends or institution in the future, for they will inherit your library when you die.

Never let the reading of books replace the reading of the Bible.

Instead of one or the other, do both; and

Let a good book humble you by seeking God in what you read and not make you proud.
