Dec 10, 2012

Since the weather outside is frightful, 'tis the season to dive into a good book. It's easy to shop for the book lover in your life, especially when there are so many unique and crafty ways for you to celebrate their book love. Check out Kidzworld's ultimate gift guide for book lovers!

No. 10: Book Journal

Chances are, a book addict probably reads more books than they can even remember. So buy them a book journal that will allow them to keep track of all the stories they’ve explored!

No.9:  Book-related 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

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

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

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

Book Store Gift CardBook 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

New Teen BooksNew 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!

Global warming will raise the ocean and bodies of waters. The cities will be flooded, and then frozen over. Someone goes outside, they freeze to death. The remaining survivors will die of starvation or freeze to death.

In my opinion, I see four most likely possibilities.  >>  Nuclear War/World Wars. >> The universe practically imploding and the sun burning us into oblivion or even another planet/meteorite slamming into us, destroying us entirely. >> Self-destructive tendencies of our own species, either accidentally or purposefully. >> Trump. Which could be the matchstick to the flame of at least two other things on this list.

I think it's kinda sad that there even actually exist debates where people argue whether someone else's identity is 'legitimate' or not. You know who knows that? The person who identifies as bisexual (or whatever else). Not me, not you, not their parents, not your parents, and no, not any religion. Them. Only them. No one else. That's it. But it is nice to see people expressing support. I'll join in and say, for all the bisexuals out there, be who you are. Let not any one person's judgment distract you from what your true feelings are. “If someone isn't what others want them to be, the others become angry. Everyone seems to have a clear idea of how other people should lead their lives, but none about his or her own.” ―  Paulo Coelho ,  The Alchemist

You cannot describe color to a blind person. But they also see things that you can't that they cannot describe to you. I have a friend, Joseph, who's been blind since birth. He says it looks sort of like nothing and everything at once, and that little dots malt into one big dot. He also doesn't quite grasp the concept of "dark" and "light" but he can sense when a light is on vs off. I have a friend who's been blind since she was eight (grenade accident) who says it's like a mix of every color, but it's not quite black or white. And there's no one color she can name of it. But when there's a noise, the "blanket" shifts around where the noise came from, like something's different but you can't tell what.

In a couple billion years, the sun will die and implode, taking Mercury, Venus, Earth, and possibly Mars with it. Unless the silent death flares get us first. They could happen at any moment with no warning, you know. Scratch that. Trump's gonna kill us.
