The Booklover's Collection

Here are a couple of gift items we recently pulled in at the bookstore where I work. I am trying to put together some great items for those of us who just love books! I call it "The Booklover's Collection" (go ahead and snicker, Stuart!). I think I need a bit of a tutorial on photographing objects. Who does this all the time? (Sara!!!)



This is the first in a series (hopefully) of mugs with quotes from author's about their love of books and reading. It says "You can't get a cup of tea large enough or a book long enough to suit me." ~C.S. Lewis. This is a prize in the great March Reading Challenge, so pres
s on! We also have a lengthier quote from Spurgeon on a blue mug. The mugs are really terrific, chunky and earthy.



Next is the amazing Booklover's Borrow Book found by Manda. We now carry them in our bookstore, and I was one of the first owners (while I wait for my cute kit from Lennis!). This little book is really quite lovely. Each page inside has 2 stubs to tear out with different little pictures and quotes from authors on the "bookmark" portion you put in the borrower's book. What a nice little reminder! Doesn't seem at all like you are implying they would steal your book when you give them such a pretty little bookmark. Here is a picture of the inside -- which you can tell I've already put to work.



Whether or not you are participating in the March Reading Challenge, these little beauties can be yours, if you wish! Simply let me know, and I'd be happy to connect you with the retailer. :) If you are a contestant, than read, read, read! You have 5 days left to meet your goal and be entered for the chance to win.

Oh, cute book-lover items! I like the chunky quote mugs especially.

I finished one of the books on my list (Mere Christianity) but decided not to read the other one (Sold). Instead, I read Deanna Favre's book, Don't bet against me.

Why would I snicker? I am thankful for all you do at the bookstore...

I don't know where I have been and missed this post. I love that quote on the mug. And I think you took lovely pictures :)
