Pinterest and Etsy are a gift giver’s dream when it comes to finding gifts for their friends and family that love books. Sometimes when you are as obsessed with reading and books as we are, you have to find creative ways to show your love for books, more so than just reading them and leaving them on a shelf (or in that stack on your nightstand that never seems to get smaller).
