Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme put together by the fabulous
ladies of The Broke and the Bookish.
Another Tuesday is upon us, dear ones, and this week we got to giddily compile a list of our top ten book related items that aren’t books. And true to the GIANT nerds that we are, book and otherwise, we have tons of items both in our possession and on our wish lists. Shocking, we know.
Heather & Christie’s Top Ten
1. Ex Libris ‘Library Collection’ of candles by Paddywax: We both currently own the ‘Jane Austen.’ I(Christie) also own the ‘Charles Dickens’ and currently lust for the ‘Edgar Allan Poe.’
2. Autographed Kindle covers of authors attending YALLfest for the past two years: *cue our best Gollum impressions*
3. My fabulous and talented blogging partner(Heather) made us both wands for the premiere of the final Harry Potter movie: Expecto-tal Awesomeness
4. Book Tshirts: Whether the books we so love get turned into movies or not, we jump on the merchandising bandwagon and snag cool swag shirts that profess to the world our fangirl love. As if we don’t announce it enough in other ways. 😉
5. Book coffee mugs: Same story as the tshirts, except the added bonus of encasing caffeinated goodness.
6. ‘In the Library’ perfume: Yes, you read that correctly. It’s a delightful little fragrance with hints of old books and cigars. Really, we’re not dangerous……..to those outside the literary community. 😉
7. Pride & Prejudice book tote: There is no end to the P&P merchandise we will purchase.
8. Ampersand book ends: Heather is the proud owner of a set. I am the proud owner of a raging case of envy. 🙂
9. For Heather, the bookish thing on her wish list, is a recently discovered bookshelf with a built in sliding ladder, just like in Beauty and the Beast. Go ahead, join us in a collective sigh.
10. For myself, I want a Pinterest level, Cribs type book reading nook. Close your eyes and picture it. Just keep the napkins handy for the drool. 🙂
And there you have it, our Literary Legion. Just a sampling of the awesome book swag that we possess and aspire to possess.
What are some of your favorite book related goodies?
