Buzz Gift Guide: The Bibliophile


Today's holiday gift guide is for all the bookworms in your life. The ideal recipient for these gifts loves good writing — and has a great sense of humor.

Always raiding your friends' impressively stocked bookshelves? Get them this Personal Library Kit, complete with date stamper and "for reference only" stickers, and maybe they'll exempt you from any overdue fines.

Author Anna Quindlen's ode to books, How Reading Changed My Life, clocks in at just 96 pages — but it's packed full of tributes to favorite characters and quirky reading lists.

Many of my bibliophile friends are passionate Jane Austen fans, and swooned over the 2005 movie version of Pride and Prejudice just as much as I did. Rather than giving your buddies double copies of all the Austen novels they already own, why not add to their movie collections with one of Austen's most endearing works?

Speaking of Austen, what fan wouldn't want to have a Jane Austen action figure to perch on a nearby shelf? The toy comes complete with a writing desk and a removable quill pen, perfect for inspiring a novelist-to-be.
