Becca over at Lost in Books has a fun post up today on shopping for Christmas, book-themed. It reminded me that this past weekend I spent daydreaming online at some bookish gift sites, after reading the following post by Ana, at Things Mean Alot, in this post she gives a link to Reading Matters. Her post took me away to two bookish sites that I just love, and here are a few things I saw that I really liked:
The Literary Gift Company,
which has things like:
a new book journal
who could resist this magnet?
I LOVE this cup.
The other site is What the Dickens, which now ships out of the UK. Do you have a Jane Austen fan in your life? I love both of these gift items. The one below is a real puzzle featuring Regency Jane Austen. 500 pieces. I love the quote on the journal, too. I can see some shopping in January (because I love me, too!) coming up.......
poured from this lovely teapot:
This looks so fun! (Chris at Stuff as Dreams are Made of, this made me think of you!)
or for the modern Penguin lover, postcards of modern writers:
If nothing else, these are good to dream over, as the snow falls and Christmas draws nearer, and for after,during the long winter evenings. Have fun shopping for the book lover in your life! I'm sure there are other book-themed sites around, please drop me a line or post about them. There is nothing quite like window-shopping online and admiring all the bookish gifts out there now.
By the way, Reading Matters has the second of three posts up on Christmas ideas, and Nov 22 was on book sets - oh, some are lovely! I particularly like the look of Dickens at Christmas:
If nothing else, I hope you enjoy looking at bookish gifts as much as I do.
