Red holiday decoration balls, candy cane, red package, with greenery and snow

​It’s the holiday season, so I couldn’t resist browsing the internet to see what holiday gifts are out there for readers. ​Here are ten gifts that I thought were fun.

White mug with black text and black image of a stylized dragon


Yep. Because I DEVOUR books!

Pale salmon colored t-shirt with the slogan My Weekend Is All Booked


​Because what better way to spend your weekend than deep inside a book?

Coffee mug with slogan Please Go Away I'm Reading


I sure could have used this mug while I was growing up.

Black t-shirt with white slogan


​Woe to the person who interrupts me while I'm reading.

This is much nicer than the cobbled together one I've been using made from an empty box of tissues, a document holder, and a ruler.

First, I put the document holder on top of the tissue box, so that I'm not lowering my head and therefore straining my neck when I read. Why a document stand? Because of the raised edge along the front. Skinny books fit inside so that the edge keeps the pages spread. My iPad also fits nicely into this gap.

Second, for thicker paperbacks and hardbacks, I put a ruler across the edge so I can balance the book on it.

Finally, I prop the book up on it, like this. (Yes, those are sticky notes behind the book. I have sticky notes EVERYWHERE!)

Black t-shirt with white slogan


Long live the Oxford comma!

​Looks like a fun way to track all the books I read. But I'd definitely need more pages...

I should tack a sign with this slogan on all of my overflowing bookshelves.

​10. T-shirt with Slogan: Dinosaurs Didn't Read. Now They're Extinct.

This one made me laugh out loud. What types of books do you think the dinosaurs would have enjoyed?
