Gifts for Readers

You can’t go wrong if you give the book-lover on your list one of the titles on our Best Books list. But if you don’t know which books the person has read, consider an accessory from Gone Reading … like their nifty Wooden Reading Rest. This adjustable book-holder is ideal for folks who like to read at meals— (will even prop up The New York Times at breakfast). You can of course use it in the kitchen to support a cookbook when following a recipe, or to proudly display a favorite coffee table tome. The Reading Rest is a handy tool for reading outdoors, too. It’s sturdy and looks good wherever you use it.

Gone Reading offers a wide variety of cool tools for readers, including book lights, bookmarks, bookplates, jacket covers, journals, and more. (Literary Action Figures, anyone?)

We like their cleverly designed Books To Check Out journal,  which not only helps you organize your reading life, but keep tabs on books you’ve lent out that might otherwise vanish for good.

Visit Gone Reading for more cool stuff.


Two gems I stumbled upon at Barnes & Noble  were these imported blank books.  I quickly snapped them up as I have a feeling they’ll disappear from the shelves soon and won’t be rep;laced.
