RIF’s Holiday Gift Guide

Besides the joy of watching someone open a book, they're also really easy to wrap. Just saying...

‘Tis the season…to shop for everyone on your list. And, we may be biased, but we think the best gifts to give—and receive—are books!

Read It Forward is making your holiday shopping a cinch this year. We’ve curated seven different gift guides chock full of books that will thrill everyone you know: the foodie in the family, the creative thinker, the fiction devotee, the adventurous spirit, the former class clown, the ultimate fan (of podcasts, history, rock ‘n roll…you name it) and the sci-fi lover who’s already purchased their movie tickets for Stars Wars: The Force Awakens. All you have to do is swing by your local independent bookstore or favorite online retailer and shop ’til you drop.

Click on each of our gift guides below to browse and shop our picks, then sit back and relax knowing you’ve taken care of everyone on your shopping list.

And what could be better than giving the gift of literature? Pretty much nothing.

Get recommendations for the greatest books around straight to your inbox every week.
