The Stacks 2022 Gift Guide for the Book Lovers in Your Life

So I’m sharing another gift guide for you this year. Last year we focused all on non-book gifts for the book lovers in your life, and we’ll mostly stay focused there, however this year we’re talking about the different types of readers you may know. I am including a few actual books *gasp* and some things that I have loved this year that maybe aren’t so much in the book world, but are just great gifts. If you want all of the book recs be sure to check our my shop over on, it has books I love, books my kids love, and even books I’m looking forward to reading.

  1. If you’re reading on the go, you need a Kindle, duh.
  2. Any traveler knows they need a good suitcase and as an Away loyalist since 2016, I couldn’t recommend anything better . Well actually, you might need this duffle that fits on the roller bag, while you’re at it.
  3. You can’t read on the go without a book mark, and this wooden Toni Morrison one is perfection.
