No. 10: Book Journal

No.9:  Book-related iPhone Case

Gift Guide: Book LoverHarry Potter iPhone Case
 

Personalized iPhone cases tell a lot about a person. So why not get your friend a case that is a tribute to their favorite book! Check Etsy.com for a great selection of styles.

No. 8: Personalized Bookmark

Gift Guide: Book LoverMetal Bookmark
 

You’ve probably used the typical paper style bookmarks with pictures of cute animals on them. These are fine and dandy, but for someone who is always reading, why not get them something special to mark their pages. Metal charm bookmarks add a personal, sophisticated touch to a book lover’s reading experience. You can find a wide variety on Etsy.com.

No. 7: Book Jewelry

No. 6: Reading Light

Do you know someone who can’t put a book down, even after lights out? Then the perfect gift for them is a reading light. It’s like a flashlight, only it’s hands-free. It simply clips onto their book and shines down on their page. You can find these at most chain bookstores.

No. 5: Book Purse

Gift Guide: Book LoverBreaking Dawn Book Purse
 

Let your book-loving friend arrive in style with a handcrafted purse made out of their favorite novel’s cover! They’re cute and totally unique. You can find a wide variety on Etsy.com.

No. 4: Book Fragrance

Gift Guide: Book LoverDemeter 'Paperback' Fragrance
 

Some people are so passionate about books that they can’t resist the smell of a used or antique book store. You’ve probably seen them, opening old books and taking a huge wiff. Well, the perfect gift for these people will give them that smell all day long. It’s a cologne spray called Paperback by the Demeter Fragrance Library.

No. 3: Bookends

Gift Guide: Book LoverBookends
 

If you know someone who is not just a reader, but a collector as well, then nothing is more practical for them than a set of bookends. You can find bookends online or in most department stores. For affordable prices, check stores like T.J. Maxx (USA) or Homesense (Canada).

No. 2: Gift Certificate

Gift Guide: Book LoverBook Store Gift Card
 

Do you know the book lover in your life’s favorite place to shop? If you don’t want to risk buying them a book they’ve already read, then get them a gift card to their favorite new or used book store.

No. 1: A New Book

Gift Guide: Book LoverNew Teen Books
 

A lot of avid readers have a Goodreads account. This site allows them to keep track of all the books they’ve read, are currently reading, and want to read in the future. If your book-loving friend has a Goodreads account, snoop their “to read” list. Chances are they don’t own those books, so choosing from there is a safe bet. But we suggest you get a gift receipt just in case!

all it took was one conversation, one look, one smile, one laugh and I was gone. Gone into oblivion. Disappeared  into some alternate universe for just me and him. His eyes were captivating and his words were infectious. As I fell harder the image of myself I once saw was slowly fading to make room for his.. He became everything I wanted. He became my life in more ways than one. I opened up to him. The was way he made it so easy was almost like casting a spell on me. I no longer had control over my own body. It was all him. But soon our love became my love for him..our hearts became further and further apart because little ddid I know our love was non existaant and it was  always just my love. my love that he used to his advantage to get to my heart.. and once he got there he stole it. he stole my heart tore it apart and left me to clean up the mess. He was a criminal.

So I guess I'll take w shot at this,   I am Mount Everest, Steep, Up and Downs. The world around,  walking all over me,  I am of whispers. A misunderstood mountain, They pray for safety that I won’t kill them That cannot help them.  I am not evil,  I am not a killer, I don’t hurt others for joy. I act strong and hid in the fog, But I can’t always hide. I break, I fall Avalanches occur from my surface.   I don’t mean to kill I don’t mean to break, I’m sorry if you become my victim I don’t mean it I am veiled in the clouds and fog No one knowing how I feel. You may ask, But I never tell I may regret not talking, but you don’t get it. I am misunderstood, I am shown to be strong, I am called mighty, I am high, To most I cannot fall. But no one gets it, I break, I fall, I hurt Just as those who climb me, I feel pain, I suffer   I am a mountain but I do cry Those storms that some die in, They blamed them for testing me I do not mean it I cannot help if I feel pain I am me, I am like you I have hills to climb, Life’s a climb, I am a climb There are steeps to overcome I may not make it, I may fall, I will fall Attempt to get up, May fail   I am not always the strong mountain, The one others come for help I need help to, You may cry to me I cry away from others, hidden I show no emotion, I store it But it explodes, I shatter, I show the true colors of my feelings I fall and it may seem like most ignore There are those who stop and help I am Mount Everest High and Steep, I to have to climb, The Mountain of Life

Welcome to Kidzworld, how are you? Here are some tips on how to survi- I mean, have a good time. 1, no swearing or saying copyrighted company names. they will just get replaced with hashtags (i.e ####) 2, if you're on chat, no cyberbullying (this one isn't from personal experience, but still!)! 3, if people start to get annoying on chat, just block 'em.
