Novel-T shirts

Novel-T shirts

I couldn’t help smiling when I saw these Novel-T shirts this morning (thanks Erica!). Nerdy book t-shirts? What’s not to love? I personally would never wear a numbered athletic jersey to support a pro-sports player (I’ll go as far as an A’s hat), but I’ll happily don a t-shirt to show where my literary allegiance lies. Supporting your favorite literary hero has the added bonus of supporting the development of children’s writing skills — Novel-T donates $1 of each purchase to 826NYC. Click here to see the full line of t-shirts here. There’s also a release party next Friday, May 7, in Brooklyn.

Bookmarks for Team Edward & Team Jacob

Bookmarks for Team Edward & Team Jacob

OK, so after talking about hiding your Twilight book the other day, I thought it was only fair to post something for those who aren’t ashamed of their Twilight reading habits.  I was curious what kind of Twilight merchandise is available…let me tell you, it’s crazy, you can get Twilight anything. I did think these Edward-inspired Twilight bookmarks from sharlzndollz on etsy were fun, and the wolf-charm bookmark from Epic Emporium for Team Jacob.

iPad Cover Looks Like a Book

iPad Cover Looks Like a Book

I’ve seen MacBook cases that look like old-fashioned books, but iPad and Kindle covers that look like books? Oh the irony. Yes, it seems you can disguise the fact that you using an e-reader. Designed by two Minnesotan bibliophiles, BOOK is a handmade, hardcover case to store your iPad or Kindle (different versions are available for the different e-readers), which look like books from the outside.  Disguise your iPad or Kindle on a bookshelf by using BOOK. Or confuse everyone with the “This is Not a Book” version.

Colorful Book Wallpaper

Colorful Book Wallpaper

I’m always excited when I see book wallpaper. Some part of me wishes I could live in an old-fashioned library, with books all the way up to the ceiling, and a towering ladder to reach them. This dream started back when I was in elementary school, when I would have loved to have this “Library” wallpaper in my bedroom.  Designed by Tom Slaughter, this book wallpaper is part of Cavern Home’s artist series. Cavern Home is a boutique wallpaper design firm, and they have many beautiful non-bookish designs too. Check them out here. For black-and-white book wallpaper in a different style, check out this earlier post.
