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
