ThinkGeek: Gifts for Bookworms

So, I stumbled upon a really cool website not too long ago. I can’t remember how I came across it, but I’m hooked.

I haven’t bought anything from there (yet) so I don’t know how good their quality is, but it looks pretty good to me! I want so many things from the website.

The website is called ThinkGeek and it’s all merchandise from various subjects. There’s a TV, Movies, and Books section which includes Tolkien and Harry Potter. There’s also a Book Lovers category that has a lot of cool stuff!

Admittedly, there’s not as much variety as I thought there would be, but it’s still cool and the prices aren’t that bad, either.

But they have pillowcases, lamps, mugs and glasses, blankets, rugs, jackets and shirts, watches, backpacks and tote bags, shoes, merchandise from books, and so much more.

If I had money to spare, I would totally go nuts buying stuff. Until I win a million dollars, I’m going to have to settle putting things on my wishlist until my birthday.

Have you heard of ThinkGeek before? If you checked it out, what did you think? Let me know in the comments below!

9 Gifts for Readers

Just a couple days ago, I gave you guys 9 gift ideas for writers. Pretty much all writers are readers, but there are some readers out there who are not writers.

Here’s a list gift ideas for that special reader in your life. If they write too, then that’s a bonus.

9 Gifts for Readers

First Lines Reading Mug

First Lines Reading Mug

Who doesn’t want a mug that has a ton of book quotes on them? It’s inspirational and it surrounds you with the good vibes that only books can give us. Plus, this mug is a nice size to hold more coffee!

Go Away I'm Reading Mug

“Go Away I’m Reading” Mug

If anyone interrupts you, allow this mug to kindly tell them to scram. If it doesn’t work, I give you permission to snap at them. Hey, the mug warned them and they didn’t listen.

One More Chapter Pillowcase

“Just One More Chapter” Pillowcase

How many times have we fallen asleep trying to read a book? Just tuck this under your head and you’ll be good to go!

Personal Library Kit

Personal Library Kit

How often do you allow a friend to borrow a book and don’t see it again for months? Or, better yet, you never see it again? This kit allows you to mark your books as your own making it easier to let people borrow them. I don’t know if they’re more likely to return it without losing it, but at least you’ll have this hanging over their head for a long time.

Bibliofile Reading Journal

“My Bibliofile” Reading Journal

So many books, so little time. Use this journal to keep track of the books you’ve read and what you thought of them. Sure, there’s Goodreads, but writing it all done feels a bit more official.

Super Bookshelf

Super Bookshelf

It’s a bookshelf that you tack onto your wall and looks like Wonder Woman is holding them up in the air. How cool is that? Not only does it give you a place to put your books, but it’s a cool decor as well.

Finger Bookmark

Placement Bookmark

I hate stopping in the middle of the chapter. I always forget where I am and what was going on. This bookmark helps keep your exact spot in the book, not just the page.

Reading Light

Reading Light

How often do you lie down in bed to read? Do you have a lamp near you? I don’t. This little light comes in handy and it clips right onto the book with a bendable neck to adjust where you want the light to shine.

Amazon Kindle

Amazon Kindle

This is the most expensive item on this list, but it’s well worth it. This is the New Kindle, one of the earlier editions of the Amazon Kindle. This is the one I have and I absolutely love it. There’s not built-in light, but it’s a touchscreen and can hold so many books that it’s a bit dangerous. This is the perfect gift for any bookworm.

What else can you get a book lover for the holidays? Recommend books, get them a gift card to their favorite bookstore, or something simple as a cozy blanket so they can read all snuggly warm.

Diagrams for Book Lovers

A few days ago I was looking through my Twitter and I came across Goodreads’ latest tweet:

Curiosity bit me so I clicked on the link and an article titled 15 Insanely Useful Diagrams for Book Lovers came up.

The article is full of flowcharts about reading and books. I thought it would be something cool to share with you guys because I enjoyed looking through them.

Many of you may have already seen some of the charts; especially if you’re on Pinterest. There were a few that I have never even seen before and they were all interesting and useful in their own way.

My favorite charts were…

6 — which I’ve seen before
8 — this one had interesting facts about authors
11 — as a teacher, this one is useful
13 — this had more interesting facts about characters in books
15 — this one is just plain adorable

So go check out the charts. I promise it won’t be a time-waster. If anything, you’ll add new books to your to-be-read list.
