Its never been shown that Walt has actually read what Gale wrote or when he received the book. You see Walt reading the book in his condo .I will not be shocked if the 2nd story arch starts with us being shown Gale writing the note to Walt and Walt thinking very little of the being given the book.
Little things like this make Breaking Bad awesome:
Awesome song: I bet they paid a pretty penny to use this.....
Crystal Blue Persuasion by Tommy James and the Shondells
Every song they've used has not only been super awesome, but goes so well with the scene it is attached too. I am always telling my wife I hate when shows or movies use terrible songs for no reason.
