Disclaimer: Even though I have called this article A Bookworms Essentials, they are not necessarily essentials. By no means I am I saying that every book lover has to have these things, I just thought it would be fun to write an article on some of the bookish things that are available.

These items would make great gifts for book lovers or perhaps you will find something within this list that you want to get for yourself.

Anyway, without further ado, lets get on with the article!

Folding Book Light

➵ When I saw this, I thought it looked incredible! When folded it looks just like a journal but when you open it, it casts this beautiful 360 degrees LED light.

Fairy Lights

➵ There are of course cheaper alternatives to the folding book light, such as fairy lights.

Book Scented Candles

➵ Having a lit candle by you while you are reading is extremely relaxing but what I did not realise was that you can actually get book scented candles!

Hands Free Book Holder / Book Weight

➵ Whenever I get really into a book, I never want to put it down, I have to keep reading to the end. The only problem is my hands ache so much from holding my book for so long. A hands free book holder is perfect for this problem. You can also get book weights that hold the pages down for you!

Paperback Perfume

➵ I didn’t even know that this was a thing! Though it probably isn’t everyone’s cup of tea, I just had to include it.

Bookmark Dictionary

➵ Unfortunately, I could not find any images for this either but for those of you that do not know what the bookmark dictionary is, it is basically a small electronic dictionary that fits into your book so that you can look up any unknown words that you come across while reading.
