Recently I signed up to become an affiliate for the UK company For Reading Addicts. With Amazon’s drop in the “goodness” ranking (at least in my book for unscrupulous employee policies, price gouging, and paying no taxes on a business that generates trillions of dollars for its owner), I thought I’d look for alternatives when it comes to shopping online this holiday season.
I’m bringing this delightful bookaholic site to your attention so far in advance of the typical gift giving season because many of the products (get this!) are made to order and as such take longer than mass produced items.
Just look at this hooded blanket, for example. It’s hand cut and sewn when you order which adds a processing time of up to 10 days. It comes in adult and youth sizes. The edges are embroidered. The interior is ultra-soft polyester. Don’t tell me you can’t imagine yourself curled up in this beautiful blanket!
Do you have a Harry Potter fan in your life? No matter the age or size (twin to California king), cover your bed with the house of your choice, the Marauder’s Map or a collage of book covers.
That’s just a little sample of all the drool-worthy items sure to please any book lover at For Reading Addicts. There are book lights, bedding, home accessories, clothing, totes, coloring books, face masks, shoes, coffee mugs, and more! There are Halloween, Christmas and Valentine’s Day themed products plus items featuring 13 book or book series. I’ve recently become obsessed with Outlander and was thrilled to find a whole section devoted to this time-traveling romance series. There’s even a section in honor of Ruth Bader Ginsberg.
Other thematic items include:
- Game of Thrones
- Pride and Prejudice
- Doctor Who
- The Great Gatsby
- The Fault in Our Stars
- To Kill A Mockingbird
- Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland
- Anne of Green Gables
- A Tree Grows in Brooklyn
- Little House on the Prairie
- The Lord of the Rings
So there you have it! An amazing place to order the perfect gift for any book lover this holiday season. With worldwide shipping, a money back guarantee, and guaranteed quality, and secure online shopping, what more could you ask for?
