Book lovers aren't always the easiest people to shop for when the holidays come around.
This list of gift ideas for book lovers will help you find that perfect read for your favourite bookworm as we pulled the top 10 lists for 2022 based on our own readers. And, to make it even easier, we’ve broken it down based on reader's ages, format and whether it's fiction or non-fiction.
Adult Fiction Books
Browse through our top fiction books for 2022 and find a book that fits your favourite person for the holidays. Or if you find something for yourself on this list, why not place a hold?
Adult Non-Fiction Books
Fiction not your jam? We have some great adult non-fiction titles that will please even the pickiest secret Santa.
Adult Fiction eBooks
Just to mix things up a bit, we also threw in our top eBooks for those people on your list who cannot put down their Kindle or Kobo.
Adult Non-Fiction eBooks
