86 Holidays 2018 | THE VALLEY BREEZE The Bookworm Books give readers the opportunity to forget their worries and get lost in a great story. Supporting your local libraries is a great idea, but sometimes, bookworms want a broader reach on available material and the chance to own a classic. If you have someone in your life who loves the feeling of physically turning the pages and entering a world of fantasy, consider these ideas for gifts. Monthly Book Clubs Subscription services are huge in America. From food to razor blades, there aren't many things you can't have deliv- ered to your door for a monthly premium and books are no different. Certain clubs let users choose from several options as picked by judges. Others offer a complete surprise by ship- ping different books based on someone's interests. Consider how picky your bookworm is when it comes to their literary preferences and deciding which one would make a perfect gift. Creative Book Storage Anyone who loves to read also enjoys displaying some of their favorites throughout their home. While traditional book- shelves are useful, they can appear outdated in some modern homes. Instead, look for floating shelves, which make books appear to be standing on a wall, or an abstract shelf that will become a conversation piece. You also could shop for unique bookends that make a statement. Meet and Greets Authors typically go on tours to promote their most recent books. Keep an eye out for your loved one's favorites and buy them tickets. In addition to asking questions, they may get to meet their hero and even get a picture or autograph. Most importantly, they will be able to thank them for provid- ing them with stories they love. It's a memory they will never forget. Personalized Bookmark In today's world, you can put a picture on anything. Create a heartfelt gift that will make the recipient think of you each time they open and close a book. Think of a special image your loved one appreciates like a good time you had together. – © 2018 Green Shoot Media NOV-15-2018-MAG-CL-88-Laura.indd 86 11/7/18 10:44 AM
