9 Gifts for Readers

Just a couple days ago, I gave you guys 9 gift ideas for writers. Pretty much all writers are readers, but there are some readers out there who are not writers.

Here’s a list gift ideas for that special reader in your life. If they write too, then that’s a bonus.

9 Gifts for Readers

First Lines Reading Mug

First Lines Reading Mug

Who doesn’t want a mug that has a ton of book quotes on them? It’s inspirational and it surrounds you with the good vibes that only books can give us. Plus, this mug is a nice size to hold more coffee!

Go Away I'm Reading Mug

“Go Away I’m Reading” Mug

If anyone interrupts you, allow this mug to kindly tell them to scram. If it doesn’t work, I give you permission to snap at them. Hey, the mug warned them and they didn’t listen.

One More Chapter Pillowcase

“Just One More Chapter” Pillowcase

How many times have we fallen asleep trying to read a book? Just tuck this under your head and you’ll be good to go!

Personal Library Kit

Personal Library Kit

How often do you allow a friend to borrow a book and don’t see it again for months? Or, better yet, you never see it again? This kit allows you to mark your books as your own making it easier to let people borrow them. I don’t know if they’re more likely to return it without losing it, but at least you’ll have this hanging over their head for a long time.

Bibliofile Reading Journal

“My Bibliofile” Reading Journal

So many books, so little time. Use this journal to keep track of the books you’ve read and what you thought of them. Sure, there’s Goodreads, but writing it all done feels a bit more official.

Super Bookshelf

Super Bookshelf

It’s a bookshelf that you tack onto your wall and looks like Wonder Woman is holding them up in the air. How cool is that? Not only does it give you a place to put your books, but it’s a cool decor as well.

Finger Bookmark

Placement Bookmark

I hate stopping in the middle of the chapter. I always forget where I am and what was going on. This bookmark helps keep your exact spot in the book, not just the page.

Reading Light

Reading Light

How often do you lie down in bed to read? Do you have a lamp near you? I don’t. This little light comes in handy and it clips right onto the book with a bendable neck to adjust where you want the light to shine.

Amazon Kindle

Amazon Kindle

This is the most expensive item on this list, but it’s well worth it. This is the New Kindle, one of the earlier editions of the Amazon Kindle. This is the one I have and I absolutely love it. There’s not built-in light, but it’s a touchscreen and can hold so many books that it’s a bit dangerous. This is the perfect gift for any bookworm.

What else can you get a book lover for the holidays? Recommend books, get them a gift card to their favorite bookstore, or something simple as a cozy blanket so they can read all snuggly warm.

My Kindle Broke

So I went on vacation and brought my Kindle. I read one book on there and was in the middle of another book on the way home.

Unfortunately, I’m not going to be able to finish that book for a little while. I mean, I have the Kindle app on my iPad so I could continue to read it, but I’m bummed out that I don’t have my actual Kindle anymore.

We came home Saturday morning and Saturday night I was looking at my Kindle to see what kind it was. I never had a case for it so I wanted to ask for one for my birthday.

When I turned it on, it said the battery was dead. It was 3 quarters full just that morning and the battery normally lasts forever.

I plugged it in. It turned on, but the light was orange instead of green. I unplugged it to see how the battery was, but it remained on the charging symbol and the light shut off. None of the buttons worked.

Kris managed to shut it all the way off, but now it won’t turn back on. I kept it plugged in hoping that would work. I finally got the green light so I turned it on. The screen remained blank and after a few tries, the dead battery symbol showed up again.

I’m pretty sad about this. I had a lot of books on there that I hadn’t read yet. Again, I can still read it through the app on my iPad, but I want my actual Kindle.

I also wish I knew why it broke. I’ll be two- or three-years-old in December. As far as I know Kindles should last a lot longer than that. But it is the first edition Kindle, so… I don’t know.

I guess I know what I want for my birthday now.
