Book Coasters

Every bookworm has a cup of tea or coffee with them when they’re reading. It’s always a good idea to have a coaster around so as not to ruin their favorite reading spot table. Check out the beautifully designed wooden book coasters by CuttingBoredom on Etsy!

A Page Holder

If your bookworm is a classic lover, they’re more likely to read physical books than an ebook. There’s just something so cozy, familiar, and appealing about holding the pages of a heavy text open and filling your mind with the wondrous hallucinations inked out on the page. However, it can get tedious holding the book open, so try out these personalized wooden page holders designed with the reading hand in mind by littleTOPcreations.
