It's the time of year when people when more and more people are saying, "My brother/father/mother/friend loves books. What should I get them for Christmas?" If only it were that easy to pick out a book that someone is going to love. Unless you know your book lovers preferences really well -- and know what they've read -- I still tend to recommend that you buy them something that is not a book. Or a gift card. But mostly things that are not books. Here are 10 gift ideas of book lovers.
Let's start with the splurge item. Every list has one and this is mine. I love the folded book art in Luciana Frigerio's Etsy shop. I used to be one of those people who was horrified at the idea of making art objects out of perfectly readable books but once I started seeing all the pretty things people were making I mellowed out. You can get custom-made monogrammed items, but I really love this one that simply says "Read."
