Book culture is strong. People love browsing a bookstore. Book clubs have been around forever. With the advent of social media, Bookstagram and BookTok quickly appeared. And there is a great reason for this: books create a strong and special bond between people.
I was a high school English teacher for several years and the best class I ever taught was a 10th grade reading class. This was my favorite class because I had some of the best conversations with students and literature was always the impetus for those conversations.
We didn’t have to be reading the same book. They didn’t have to be reading a book I had read or even heard of. Through the characters and the setting, we were able to broach conversations we may never have thought of before.
One of the coolest things we see each day in our bookstore are book inscriptions. People give books as gifts, and rarely the reason for that gift is willy-nilly. We give books as gifts for important milestones and to important people because books convey ideas, thoughts and feelings we may not have the words for.
Not convinced? Here are more reasons books make great gifts!
