Oh wow. I think I want everything. EVERY SINGLE ONE OF THEM. That’s my Christmas wishlist sorted…
I know, there’s a lot of cute things that I want up there too. 🙂
I love these 😀
🙂 Glad you like.
Ohhh my word, I LOVE this! I’ll be forwarding this to everyone as my Christmas wishlist 😉 Thanks!!
Hehe, glad to help. I had a lot of fun putting this post together. 🙂
Thanks for the listings. I want almost every item shown (of course I don’t need them just want them). Ah well, guess that’s what the purpose of the wish list.
That’s how I feel (want, but do not need, but the want is pretty strong). I’m slowly saving gift cards to use on a nook with the glow light. That’s the one I can really get some use out of.. (I have visions of me reading while the husband sleeps).
hrr, I thought you already had like $324582 in B&N gift cards!?
Shh, one can never have too many.
Reblogged this on Sweet Tea Apothecary and commented:
This awesome book blog featured my Dead Writers perfume/cologne oil in their Bookish Gifts round up. So exciting, thanks!
No problem. I really like the name ‘Dead Writers’. Brilliant!
Love this! My Christmas list this year may be formed entirely from Etsy. I particularly love the Harry Potter rings and the Literary T shirts.
Etsy is one of my addictions. I love that site.
I want all of these! But especially the Austen and the Patronus shirts. I would love to have the Kate Spade book clutches, I think I posted about those before as well, but they’re just so expensive! So many girls here in Singapore have designer bags but I haven’t seen those clutches yet. And I ordered a Roald Dahl stamp (Matilda) that Leila of Bookshelves of Doom converted to a pendant. I hope it gets here soon!
I like the Austen shirt too. And the Hyperbole one! Yeah, the Kate Spade clutches were posted here last year too. I just couldn’t resist adding them. They are so beautiful. Wish they weren’t so expensive. Sigh.
Oh, wow you ordered a Roald Dahl stamp pendant? Sounds very cool.
Sigh, I would buy those Kate Spade clutches if they weren’t so expensive. I’d rather buy books. Yep, I ordered a Matilda and a LOTR map pendant. They’re bigger than I expected.
I love this. I literally sent this link to my bf for xmas. The jewelry rocks but I think I want the metal bookends the most :]
Ha, that’s awesome. 🙂 Oh yeah, those book ends: love.
I love this bookish gift posts, Janice! Keep them comingl As for me, I’m dying to give one of the Harry Potter fan girls the glasses ring. I want the square book ring, and Kate Spade clutch. Both are two pricey to even go on the Christmas list I think!
I’m seriously considering doing genre versions of this post. Hmm. It may happen. Yeah, I have similar feelings about those things. The clutch is especially too much money to spend on a bag. I think the ring is more reasonable since it is handmade and silver.. and I have seen stuff like that go for more, but the clutch price kills me since.. how often would I use it to justify that pricetag.. but it’s SO gorgeous.
Oh, and the Olympia Le-Tan book clutches, and a complete set of the Sterling Publishing Classics… I’m sure I’m forgetting something. 😉
*nod*. Sigh, those Olympia Le-Tan clutches are SO expensive. I think there is no choice but to make your own version there, unless you are a millionaire. But I had to include them for their prettiness. *pets an imaginary bag*. Thank goodness the Sterling classics are a reasonable price! Is there such a thing as too many copies of Jane Austen? Nah.
