Use Your Want to Read Shelf to Drop Holiday Hints
You hold the gift in your hands, gauging its weight. You imagine the possibilities as your fingers tear into the wrapping paper, casting aside pieces of ribbon and tape, to reveal…
A phone charger. A novelty keychain. Socks.
It's time to face the truth: You're hard to shop for. Your long-suffering friends and family have been forced, once again, to search aimlessly for something, anything, to wrap and hand over.
"You shouldn't have," you say, a little too earnestly, as you glance around for a gift receipt.
There's a better way. This holiday season ensure a merry situation for all by sharing your Want to Read shelf with your loved ones.
The benefits of sharing your Want to Read shelf:
- You'll increase your chances of receiving a book—a book!—as a gift.
- This will be a book you actually want.
- You'll save your friends and family the headache of wondering what to get you.
- No guilt! This isn't a phone or a puppy. Books are delightfully affordable treasures, especially if you avoid putting brand-new hardcovers on your list.

Wish you could create a new shelf? You can! If your Want to Read shelf is too long or full of books you already own, then custom shelves are the way to go. Find out how to make one here. You can be as creative as you want with the name of your shelf—from Wishlist to Please Buy Me These Books, Billy.
And this bookish strategy works all year long, for birthdays, anniversaries, and every other gift-giving situation. Suggest trading Want to Read shelves with your loved ones who read, and you'll make your shopping easier, too.
We wish you a holiday season (and beyond) full of books, readers!
