Top Ten Tuesday is a book blogging prompt hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. I don’t participate every week, but I join in when I find the prompt interesting. This week everyone is sharing bookish items they want to own, and believe me, I had no problems coming up with this list! Some items are practical, some are fashionable, some are expensive, and some are reasonable. I’d love to receive any of these as gifts!
Sharon Fuller | Ravelry I *really* want these fingerless gloves (it gets cold in the office!). I don’t knit, so I also need someone to knit them for me.
ObviousState | Etsy I already have a t-shirt from this shop, but I’d love these set of notebooks!
Pottery Barn I *need* this. It spins, and it would be fun for displaying my favorite novels and other ephemera.
Kate Spade My favorite color combo is black, white, and hot pink, I love Kate Spade scarves, and I still love the feel of a Sunday Times newspaper in print. Basically this scarf was made for me. If I had this one, I’d be less sad that I didn’t get last fall’s bookshelf print scarf (but I shouldn’t complain since I did get the card catalog tote from that collection).
CapesandCrafts | Etsy I actually think cross-stitching is fun! We’re going to do some at the library, I believe. This pattern is perfect for me. Bonus points if you can name the Buffy the Vampire Slayer episode where this quote appears.
They send you a surprise package of bookish things every few months. What is more fun than that?
Urban Outfitters This is probably not the *exact* one I would choose, but you get the idea.
Typewriter Kindle Case
Amazon | Verso by Molly Rausch My Kindle case is looking a little beat up; I adore this rose colored leather embossed with a typewriter.
True Story Tattoo
Inspired by the Daughter of Smoke and Bone trilogy by Laini Taylor
I’ve been thinking for several years about getting a literary tattoo. I’d want something simple, and something that isn’t just a quote. I also want one that isn’t immediately recognizable; it has to only make sense to people who have read the books. In Daughter of Smoke and Bone, Karou has the words “true” and “story” tattooed on her wrists. When friends and acquaintances exhibit disbelief that her hair grows out of her head blue or that the monsters in her sketchbook are real, she shows them her wrists. I’m planning on getting the above images (or something similar) for my next tattoo. It will be like Karou’s, only I’m going to add a feather and a wishbone to mine.
