Nicknamed the “Netflix for books,” Scribd offers members unlimited access to millions of books/audiobooks/magazines/newspapers every month. So instead of buying your loved one a single hardback for about $25, you can give them a three-month subscription for the same price.
Scribd: $25 (three months), $50 (six months) or $100 (twelve months)
Book of the Month Subscription
What’s awesome about Book of the Month is that it allows you to give your loved one books, but they get to choose which ones. At the beginning of each month, they’ll get to pick from five curated titles, and then their book will arrive in the mail with a bookmark and a letter describing why it’s a compelling read.
Book of the Month: $44.99 (three months), $79.99 (six months) or $149.99 (twelve months)
If your significant other is constantly on the go, then an audiobook may be their reading medium of choice. An Audible membership gives them two Audible Original audiobooks each month and one credit that can be redeemed for any audiobook every month.
Audible: $15 (one month), $45 (three months), $90 (six months) or $150 (twelve months)
