As a self-proclaimed introverted bookworm, I know a thing or two about what readers really want when gift-giving season rolls around. In their hearts, readers want nothing more than to curl up with their favorite book in something cozy with a warm drink within reach… literally all of the time. For readers, a perfectly romanticized weekend always includes a trip to the bookstore or library and a lot of time for reading. And when they’re not actively reading, they’re thinking about what they’re going to read next, hunting for beautiful new bookmarks, or wishing they had more time to read. Readers love collecting books and bookish things as much as they love reading, and often can’t help but passionately share the details of their favorite stories with the people around them.

If this sounds like someone you know (and we all know at least one person like this, and if you don’t, it might be you) this is the list for you. Ahead I’m sharing the best bookish gifts to buy the reader on your list, or even for yourself, this year.
