What do you get a reader when you don’t know what they’ve read? Things that aren’t books! And also books about books. Lean in.
For Their HouseIt’s not just about the books; it’s about everything around them.
For PlayingThe problem slash greatest asset of reading is that it happens most effectively alone, and even though a good 90% of my end game in life involves sitting sideways and very silently on one end of a couch with a book while friends and loved ones and casual sexual partners sit very silently on other furniture nearby, sometimes you just want to talk to living breathing people you’re not making up in your head, you know? Anyway Scrabble is perfect. These other games look okay, too.
For Their LookLiterally reek of reading with book-scented perfume, exude bookishness with a subtly placed pin or necklace, or just wear the full text of your favourite classic novel on you at all times.
For Their Mind
Are books about books the perfect kind of book? You decide. (They’re not but they’re fun.)
