The one thing bookish people don't need are more books. They already have three copies of The Godfather (although they'd probably take another if you made them an offer you couldn't refuse). With that, here are some suggestions for bookish gifts and accessories your bookish friends will love. Happy reading!

Carry your books in style with this chic tote. It's sturdy enough to carry all of your books (because we know you have more than one), PLUS, the illustrations of classics on the tote can be inspo for your never-ending TBR list!
