The Perfect V-Day Gift for Your Lovely Reader!

Valentine’s Day is just about a week away! While chocolates, flowers, and a card can be a no brainer, this year dazzle it up and give your book lover something a little more special!

I know I would adore any one of these literary inspired gifts! So get ready to scroll, and see if anything catches your eye..for the apple of your eye (I had to)!

  1. Kindle Book Cover

The woman’s purse has been a mystery for centuries…what goes in may never come out. SO this year get your S/O a case to protect the keeper of their books! If they don’t already have one they will thank you…and if they do have one get something to remind them of their favorite book! Like this Winnie the Pooh case!

  1. Novel Teas

Tea and book lovers go together like..well tea and book lovers so if your partner fits this pair then look no further for the perfect Valentines gift! Novelteas has tea of course..inspired by literary favorites and disguised tea tins! I mean c’mon how cute!

  1. Candles

We have finally arrived at the candle portion of this scroll…which may or may not be my favorite section. Now every book lover knows there is just something about the smell of those old pages…well you guess it right…there’s a candle for that!

  1. Personalized Bookmark

Sometimes the best gifts are the ones you make. So if you are down to get crafty pick up some scissors and paper! You can write your S/O favorite quote or attempt to draw a favorite character? Pinterest is a great place to go for inspiration, like this one!

  1. Literature Glass

If your reader would prefer a glass of whiskey over tea consider a literary inspired glass. Etsy is another great place to go for this gift where you can find an assortment of novels from Les Miserables to Jane Eyre! Check it out!

I would like to mention that while I have provided a link for each gift idea there are more ways than one to get these items. Just type something that interests you into my good friend Google and they will for sure give you the best option! 

I hope you have a wonderful Valentine’s Day! May it be filled with more literary love!

Happy Friday!

B&N Has Something Up Their Sleeve…

BLOG bookstore.jpgAs an avid reader, receiving books as a gift for the holidays will always put a huge smile on my face. If you or someone you know feels the same way, I’ve got some news for you –  Barnes & Noble has revealed some great holiday gifts and ideas.

Barnes & Noble recently advertised how they are going to make book shopping easier. There will be a new Nook hitting the displays this holiday season. This updated device will have an automatic brightness adjustment which will sense the area surrounding the reader to make the screen more comfortable to read. Small features like this will help Barnes & Noble stay in the race of a very dominated industry. This would be a great gift for someone who enjoys technology or for the avid reader who might want to have a hand in helping to save a few trees.

 

The company has developed two new apps to make discovering new books and gift-giving easier: BookGraph and SmartGift.

The first app is BookGraph. It is only available as a desktop app. It is described as an “interactive discovery tool,” essentially showing shoppers a list of books that might interest them. It is meant to increase discoverability for both readers and authors.

The second app is called SmartGift. This app is available on both desktop and mobile devices. Users can send a gift to someone, who can either accept the gift or exchange it for something else of the same price.

The Barnes & Noble gift guide has been updated as well. If you’re feeling extra charitable this season, they are renewing their holiday book drive program in partnership with the Instagram brand, “Hot Dudes Reading.”
