We all know them. Some of us are them. Yes, the infamous BOOK WORM. Someone who'd rather be reading a book or discussing it more than just about anything else. So what do you do when it's time to get them a gift? You can get them a book (you can't go wrong with that and we have some new releases listed below too), but what if you want to get them something unique or in addition to that book they want? Here's the guide for you! Each picture is numbered so that you can get more info below as well as a link directly to the gift you're eyeing for a loved one. Or forget them, and get something literally literary inspired just for YOURSELF.
