Best Gifts for Book Lovers: 2015

atkins-bookshelf-booksAnyone who knows a book lover is familiar with the “bibliophile’s dilemma” — which book can you buy them that he or she doesn’t already own? You can always take the path of least resistance and simply purchase a gift card to Amazon or a local bookstore — but that’s like reading the Cliff Notes rather than the actual novel. As an antidote to the dreaded bibliophile’s dilemma, Bookshelf presents great gift ideas for the book lover in your life.
