I’m the book lover in my group of friends. I literally own thousands of books and I plan to read and buy thousands more in my lifetime.

Because I have so many books, my friends tell me I’m hard to buy for because when it comes to books, they assume any one they choose is already in my collection. I realized that friends and family of other book lovers must face this same dilemma.

That’s why I decided to put together a gift guide to help. As a book lover, I promise you, the list below contains gifts for book lovers that your favorite bookworm will love!

Best Membership Gifts for Book Lovers

For your very favorite book-loving friends, consider giving a gift they can enjoy all year. Here are some awesome subscription gifts for book lovers.

Kindle Unlimited Membership

Giving the gift of a Kindle Unlimited membership is a great way to give your bookworm access to all the books they can read! Kindle Unlimited has thousands of ebooks and audiobooks available for members including popular titles.

Audible Membership

For book lovers who are always on the go, an Audible membership is a solution! Audible allows you to listen to books no matter where you are! This membership allows them to get one book each month at no cost to them! If they choose not to renew the membership, they still get to keep the books!

One sure way to give books that your reading enthusiast friend hasn’t read before is to get them a membership to Book of the Month club. Each month, NEW selections are sent to members.

Even better, members get to choose which of the five new selections they want to receive so they’re certain to get a book they really want.
