11 Things To Buy The Enthusiastic Reader In 2018

I’ve been a reading enthusiast since I was very young. One of my family’s favorite stories to tell is how, around the age of one, I’d see someone come in the door and immediately grab a book, running to them and shouting “book-a, book-a, book-a”! I kept with it for all these years, too. During my high school years, when my friends would find out what a big reader I am, they’d find it to be rather shocking – considering all my other extracurricular activities.

While I don’t get to read a novel in the span of a day anymore, because I’m too busy playing with toys, there’s still something just so appealing about a brand new book and it’s crisp, perfect pages. Oh! And I can’t forget the smell..yes, new books have a very distinct smell to them. It’s heavenly!

Reader Familiarity

Maybe you’re close enough to the reader to know what genre they like the most. If that’s the case, then go peruse the section and use your good judgment to find something that looks like it would really pique their interest! Or one you’ve read yourself, which is even better. I love a good, strong novel about the strength of a woman!

My husband is very much an audio “reader”. I’ll admit, my first instinct is to roll my eyes back at this, because I mean…I haven’t had a requirement to be read to since I was a toddler! But, hey, I understand. Some people have a more difficult time keeping their eyes open when they sit down to read, or they’re on the go so much they know it’s the only way they’ll ever “read” it. Either way, there’s a fantastic selection of books for the audio reader at AudioBooksNow that you’ll definitely want to check out!

Bookends will keep the stories right where the reader wants them on the shelf. Of course, this is for those who still like to get the physical copies of them too! I love these ones of the army guys, because it’s almost like you’ve got some toys to go play with if you feel like it, as well.

Something To Touch

Again, this is for the reader who enjoys the physical books they can hold. A bookmark is a must for these people! Gotta be able to hold your place, after all.

Like I said, when I think of the ultimate day of sitting around reading, I’ve always got a cup of coffee in my hand in this scenario! So whether it’s some joe, hot cocoa or a piping hot cup of tea, a mug that really sums it all up, is perfect to go along with the day.

Now, as much as I do love to hold a physical book in my hands, I continue to evolve and I’ve actually come to really enjoy the e-book reader. I know..it’ll never be the same as the real thing, but it’s great for when the hubs is ready to go to sleep and I’m in the middle of an intense storyline! But with that being said…

This bookmark is for the reader who also has a lot of style! Or they’re simply a bookworm that needs an occasional reminder to keep calm (because their husband and kids have left their millionth mess of the day that YOU end up cleaning up..hmph). I might need to pick this one up – for a friend.

I’m including myself in the deal hunter category, because I desperately want to be better at it! But..alas, I hate shopping. Ok, wait – that doesn’t sound right. I don’t necessarily hate shopping per se, just shopping in stores! There. Much better.

But I keep working on my breathing exercises, to sit through some site perusing and maybe save my family a few extra dollars. What’s funny is – I can sit here for hours, researching for a blog post! Therefore, here’s what I’ve found:

See, I’m really not a nose-in-the-air troll. 😉
