To help you find the best gifts for readers and bookworms in your life, we’ve scoured the internet and created this very gift guide. If you're looking to please any budding book buff, consider our picks below. After all, we all know a bookworm - and in theory, they should be the easiest people in the world to buy gifts for. We say ‘should’ because, in an ideal world, we’d simply buy them a new book. But, they already have a reading list longer than 'War and Peace'.

So, how can we surprise our book-obsessed loved ones? Yes - looking for book-related gifts for readers, can be tricky to get right - but we recommend grabbing something that they wouldn't expect. Thankfully, the internet is full of weird and smart gadgets and gifts that make perfect presents. This article is a real page-turner - well, mouse-scroller.

Why not go paperless this year with a Kindle e-reader?

There was a time when e-readers were heavy and ugly, with screens that reflected even the faintest of lights and batteries that could barely last a paragraph. Thankfully, these times are long gone.

The Amazon Kindle range is made up of impressive and simple-to-use devices, capable of powering even avid readers for weeks on one battery charge and carrying thousands of books. Screens have lost their glare, and other user-friendly features have been developed to make accessing books easier than ever before.

If you’re looking to treat a bookworm, it's worth considering a Kindle e-reader.

**Kindle ** - the lightest and most compact, now with a 6", 300 ppi high-resolution display and double the storage.

**Kindle Kids ** - includes a cover, access to over a thousand books and a 2-year worry-free guarantee.
