Books are always a great gift any time of year. My house is full of books not to mention my ebooks. It can be hard though to buy books as a gift because you do not know what the recipient has read or what their preferred genre is. This post is 10 gifts for book lovers that will be sure to be a hit this holiday season.
As an avid book reader, I used to have to make a wishlist of books I wanted as a gift. That kind of takes the fun out of a surprise and the thoughtfulness. It's fun to own things about books not just books as well.
10 gifts for book lovers this holiday season.
All the Women in My Family Sing: is an anthology documenting the experiences of women of color at the dawn of the twenty-first century. It is a vital collection of prose and poetry whose topics range from the pressures of being the vice-president of a Fortune 500 Company to escaping the killing fields of Cambodia, to the struggles inside immigration, identity, romance, and self-worth
Do you keep track of the books you read? There are ways to do this online but keeping a personal copy by hand is great. I love this idea so that future generations can see your handwriting and your thoughts on books they may want to read themselves.
Book Lender is an amazing service. Not everyone loves to read ebooks. Purchasing books can get expensive fast not to mention the space issue. Unfortunately, at the same time, not everyone has access to a great library. Book Lender is a monthly subscription service where you can “rent” books and send them back in the postage-paid envelope when finished. Remember when Netflix started and it was DVDs? This is the same concept only with books.
Book lights are important for those that prefer to read traditional print books. A lot of people like to read in bed before going to sleep. A book light lets you read while not having a bright light on, or disturbing your significant other next to you in bed.
I prefer to read on an ereader for a few different reasons. I recently purchased a Kindle PaperWhite and I'm so glad I did. The Paperwhite is lightweight and easy to hold and the screen is e-ink. E-ink means it reads like paper so it's easier on your eyes and has a built-in book light. You can not go online with this Kindle, it's just for reading. New versions are also waterproof. Reading by the pool in the summertime is now easier.
Have you ever lent a book out to someone only to never see it again? You can now turn your personal books into old school library books. Do you remember when we had to sign our name on a library card to check out a book? This kit lets you do this with all of your personal books now. It's great for anyone that has their own home library of books they lend out.
Reading in bed just got easier! I love to read in bed stretched out, however, laying on my side is difficult. The Flipy is great because it's a pillow stand that can hold your book or ereader and you don't have to try to position yourself in a way that you can see the book and also turn the page.
How cute is this shirt? It's a fun and creative way to show off your love for books. Do libraries still use these carts? I haven't seen one at my local library. You can purchase this shirt at Out of Print Clothing.
How annoying is it to be interrupted by idle chit-chat when you are reading? Without fail my husband does this right when it's a good part of the book. These socks are both cute and functional. If you can read the socks, don't bother me!
I am totally in love with this tote bag. It's a super cute way to carry your books home from either the library or the bookstore. This is another product you can purchase from Out of Print Clothing. They have a variety of products perfect for any book lover.
Who in your life is the book lover? Which of these items is your favorite?
