When we were kids, we celebrated mum and dad's anniversary as a family, with everyone giving and receiving presents. One year when I was about 10, my older brother bought me "Around the World in 80 Days". I was deeply disappointed as, even though I loved reading, getting a book as a present didn't seem very exciting. Years later, I found this book on a box of my "special things" and decided to read it. I loved it. I wish I'd appreciated the gift of this book more at the time I was given it, but I have read it dozens of times since and love it for the classic story it is.
