Thanksgiving is over, so ’tis officially the season. It’s now the time to start thinking about buying gifts. Books don’t have to be a lame disappointment to unwrap during the holidays—they can actually be a really fun and personal gift to give.
So we’re rolling out our gift guide—Paperback Presents—to help you break down what book to gift the book lovers or close ones in your life, from stocking stuffers to books curated for just about everyone you’re planning on giving a present to this season.
Our first installment: 10 books for every film and TV enthusiast in your life. You know, the one who binged Stranger Things as soon as it premiered, or how’s about the person who knows exactly which movies are going to win the awards, and then there are the ones who read The Handmaid’s Tale and thought it should be a series way before Hulu caught on. (Yes, we’ve covered all the bases!)
From series-based cookbooks to new adaptations, let them decide for themselves if the book is better than the movie. Below are 10 books they are guaranteed to love, so please, take your pick!

1. Carry This Book, Abbi Jacobson
Synopsis: With bright, quirky, and colorful line drawings, Jacobson brings to life actual and imagined items found in the pockets and purses, bags and glove compartments of real and fantastical people—whether it’s the contents of Oprah’s favorite purse or Harry Potter’s duffel bag, Amelia Earhart’s pencil case or Bernie Madoff’s suitcase. How many self-tanning lotions are in Donald Trump’s weekender? What’s inside Martha Stewart’s hand-knit fanny pack? What kind of protein bars does Michelle Obama hide in her tiny clutch at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner? Carry This Book provides a humorous and insightful look into how the things we carry around every day can make up who we are.
