I’m a bookworm through and through… sorta… I guess a true bookworm would ignore invites from friends and continue to snuggle in a blanket with a brand new book.
But I’m a social bookworm… the recluse bookworm is only for the experts. 😉
However, I do know that bookworms love words (why would we read if we didn’t??) and they’d appreciate the thoughtful gifts that include at least of one of three things:
Books. Mugs. Chocolate.
You can never go wrong with a stack of books, a mug filled to the brim with hot chocolate, and a couple bars of dark chocolate to eat while reading (if you’re not a messy eater that is…). 🙂

This is kinda the obvious gift for a bookworm. Find out what their favorite genre is or when the next book in their favorite series is coming out. It would make an awesome surprise for the teen (or adult) reader in your life.

Bookmarks will make a great gift for the book lover who doesn’t have the mental stamina required to stay up past midnight to finish their book(s).
For the bookworms proud of their blood-shot eyes and dark circles it might take a little more convincing… But these bookmarks are so cute/funny they’ll probably have them hanging on their walls. 😉

Define ‘bedtime’… If your bedtime is 3 am and that’s when you finish reading, then you didn’t read past your bedtime… There’s always a loophole… remember that. 😉
Just One More Chapter Bookmark from Amazon
Every bookworm has thought this at least a million times. This owl bookmark is sooo cute! When I first glanced at it, I thought the red book was the owl’s mouth and was like, what?? It looked like a little monster thing… I don’t know, I’m weird and blind.
