Tuesday Treat Day – For the Book Lovers

Rough Monday?  Me too.  We all need to treat ourselves on occasion, don’t we?  Hygge and all.  The world is a tough place!  You have to be ready to take it on!

These are things I find or use through the week that I love.  It could be something I’m using that’s working really well, something that makes my life easier, or just something cute!  I try to mix it up as much as possible.

Most shopping related things are on Amazon, but not always.  I also share Etsy and other random sites.  Whatever I find interesting that week.

Links are provided for all the items listed.  Amazon products are affiliate links so if you make a purchase, I will get a small percentage.

If you are someone who believes there’s almost nothing better than a good book, a hot cup of coffee, and the early morning before anyone else gets up…this is your post.

If a used book store is your idea of the best way to spend a Friday or Saturday night….this is your post.

And if so YOU, my friend, are my kinda people!!

These particular links are geared specifically for those of us who love our books and all things related!  Hope you enjoy!

 

For anyone who likes to munch and read…

book weight

I have a social book-ish app on my phone called Litsy where people share reading-themed pictures.  (Really cool app with super nice people.  If you don’t have it, you should give it a try!)

One of the pictures a user shared on Litsy had one of these nifty little things in it and my world was rocked!  You see, I often eat my breakfast alone on the weekends and am forced to scroll on my phone because I only have one free hand (with the other on spoon duty) and who can be expected to hold a book open and turn pages at the same time???

First World Problem solved, my friend!

Just over $12.

When your load is heavy….

banned book bag

Have you ever noticed that every banned book is amazing?  To Kill a Mockingbird, Harper Lee.  For Whom the Bell Tolls, Ernest Hemingway.  Catcher in the Rye, J. D. Salinger.  It’s literally just a list of The Masters!!

Aside from the bag I bought at Owl & Turtle in Camden, ME, this is my favorite book bag!  I love a banned book!

Lots of different bookish options.  Right at $18 even.

For the ol’ sniffer….

bookstore candle

This is simply genius!  Found in the ‘handmade’ section of Amazon (which I didn’t previously know existed) I find to be a huge plus for this product!  Also available in loads of other scents like Old Book, Rainy Day Reads, Sherlock’s Study.  It’s amazing what you can put in a jar these days.

A little steep at $18 each, but it’s a bookstore!

For those who like a warm sip to take away the cold nip in the air…

literature mug

Who did this?  Because whoever it is deserves an award!!  I love nothing better than a cute saying on a mug or a t-shirt (if you doubt me, you should check out my t-shirt drawer).

Only $15 for a little Shakespeare in your life.

I’m one of those people who carries a book with me wherever I go.  Seriously, it’s like my security blanket!  Right now I’m working my way through Needful Things by Stephen King, which, if you’ve not seen it lately is 700+ pages and around 5 pounds.  This monstrosity is left at home because I value my back, but even then I make sure I have my Kindle with me!

Soon I’m hoping to kick up a regular book review post and am working out the logistics on that at the moment.

In the meantime….
