Umm, what more needs to be said? You’re on an 8 hour flight and you feel like reading, but don’t want to hold it up the entire time. What do you do? Whip out your handy dandy reading pillow and voila. You’re golden.

Puns never get old. Especially when you’re wearing a shirt that has a stack of books on it and says ‘my weekend is all booked’. . . that is the epitome of a punny pun. Raise your hand if you’re sick of hearing me say pun? This would definitely make a cute gift for any bookworms out there.

Book Dragon Tee

Book dragons everywhere: hear me, hear me! This super cute tee is the perfect way to get into the reading spirit and let out your inner book worm dragon.

Someone should have worn this when The Mortal Instruments movie came out. The book was so much better. I’m not even sure you can recreate that book in movie format.

I’m Staying In Because: T-Shirt

This t-shirt is awesome. Not only does it give a list of valid reasons for why you’re staying in, but it also has “Honestly, I’d rather stay home and read.” If that’s not the best reason ever, I don’t know what else is.

Wrap yourself up in books with this cute scarf. For some reason, I can picture a librarian wearing this. Actually, why do I sound surprised by that. It makes sense. 

Jane Austen Quote Scarf

Jane Austen could not have said it better: “I declare after all there is no enjoyment like reading! How much sooner one tires of any thing than of a book! — When I have a house of my own, I shall be miserable if I have not an excellent library.” — Jane Austen, Pride and Prejudice

Books Are Bae Mug

This mug says it like it is. Books are literally bae. Just think of all the book boyfriends and girlfriends you have probably dreamt about. Maybe even daydreamed about (which is next level because you’re actually cognizant while doing it).

Bookish Mug

This cute little mug is a phrase almost every reader has thought at least once…I mean, have you seen Khaleesi’s dragons (when they were wee little things of course).

Between the Pages Coffee Mug

This colorful mug is the perfect addition to any book lovers mug collection. It can even double as a soup bowl for any college students out there!

If you plan on traveling, you’ll need a small, lightweight travel bag for a laptop, clothing, notebook and, of course, books.

This cute sticker is the perfect way to give a laptop, phone or notebook a stylish edge. Plus, I am currently trying to live by this advice . . . it’s great until I only get five hours of sleep.

World Domination For Cats Sticker

Yes, it’s true. All cats need for world domination are a few books and some catnip. Books can be dangerous . . .

I Read Past My Bedtime Pillow

This is the perfect pillow for a little nook where you can just sit back, relax and bask in the sun.
