Jackie and I have been very happy members of The Book of the Month Club for more than 6 years. This club allows you to choose a new, hardback book each month often before the release date. If no books interest you, you can skip a month.  Or you can buy multiple books with each additional book for only $10.99.

We’ve talked about our love for Libro.FM before, but it is a really great service for audiobook lovers, who want to support their local independent bookstores. They have the latest books, a subscription plan with great prices, and you are supporting your favorite local bookstore!

Book pushers like me are constantly lending out our own beloved tomes – the problem is…I can never remember to who I lent my books! A few years back I snagged this library kit and it’s still used in my home. I just love to gift it to my book friends. This way, not only does my book look adorable, but no more lost books.

4. Library Embossers

What book lover doesn’t want the luxe feel of a home library? I’ve been dreaming about my own library since viewing Beauty & The Beast for the first time. These embossers let you feel like a true book collector even if you only have room for a shelf’s worth of favorites.

Protecting books is a key priority for most book lovers. A nice book sleeve is a perfect solution for protecting your reading material while transporting it around in your purse. We have seen firsthand the emotional havoc that can be caused by a stray cup of coffee. A few book sleeves make a perfect gift for any book lover.
