gifts for book lovers

Bibliophiles, unite!

Bibliophiles love books. Maybe even more than they love their own family members. You may have met one, have a bibliophile as a friend, or maybe you are one yourself.

These avid book lovers can be seen roaming around used bookstores, pouring over the bargain book box at garage sales, and creepily sniffing pages when they think no one is looking. A bibliophile will probably talk about having a floor to ceiling library with a rolling ladder in their home one day and has likely started their collection from a young age. They will talk about how much they love reading but will be hesitant to lend you any of their books.

Bibliophiles are awesome and if you know one, here are 17 gifts for book lovers guaranteed to bring out their nerdiness.
