Gift Guide: Bookworm

Another week, another gift guide. I planned on posting one last Friday, but between finals and my infusion on Wednesday, it didn’t happen. However, I did have a nice time over the weekend pulling together a list of gifts for readers. I hope you enjoy it, and if you’re a bookworm, feel free to just send it to a friend or family member.
