Ten Gifts Readers Really Want for the Holidays


The holiday season can be challenging for those needing to buy a gift for a reader. Yes, a new book is an excellent thought. But what book? What haven’t they already read? Here, a handy (if impractical) list of gifts that readers actually want to receive.

1) Noise-canceling headphones for reading in noisy public spaces


2) A cozy, reserved reading nook in their favorite library or coffee shop

3) Self-alphabetizing bookshelves


4) A monthly dinner date with their favorite author


5) A way to summon books back from borrowers who never returned them


6) Control over the film adaptation of their favorite series


7) A one-way ticket to the fictional world of their choice


8) The ability to find the perfect reading position


9) A time machine to sneak in a few extra hours of reading time


10) An addition on their home that can be converted into a private library


Kelly Gallucci
Far too busy rereading the Harry Potter series, Kelly finds that her greatest literary sin is that she neglected to read classics like The Shining and The Perks of Being a Wallflower. In between overseeing the editorial content for Bookish, holding interviews with authors like Leigh Bardugo and Victoria Schwab, and creating book recommendations for Kanye West—Kelly’s trying to catch up on the books she missed out on. She just finished The Great Gatsby and might be in love with Fitzg. Kelly received her B.A. in English Writing from Marist College and her M.A. in Screenwriting from National University of Ireland, Galway. She is a Gryffindor.
