Literary Paraphernalia: 10 Bookish Items for Home

In this week’s Literary Paraphernalia, I scoured the internet for ten bookish items for the home. Here’s what I found:

Food and literature? Sounds like perfection to me. This Hobbit quote reads, “If more of us valued food and cheer and song above hoarded gold, it would be a merrier world.”

These coasters are handmade with collages from the pages of books. If you’re crafty, you could probably make them yourself.

I will admit this made the list because elephants happen to be my favorite animal, but the print is adorable and is placed on top of a dictionary page. Words and elephants (like food and literature) are a match made in my heaven. The two prints below are equally amazing.

So, I’m not entirely sure what a mockingjay smells like? Possibly revolution and coal. But I suppose I’ll find out when this candle arrives at my doorstep.

These pillows are each designed to look like scrabble tiles. They’d be perfect for a reading nook.

This Pride and Prejudice pillow would also be perfect for a reading nook, or, you know, your bed so you can always sleep close to Mr. Darcy.

I love the design on this Virginia Woolf mug and can already picture it filled to the brim with some hot tea, while I read a book.

Again, these paper roses are something that you could make yourself if you know how to work an x acto blade. They also make a great alternative to real roses, which I tend to forget to water.

Check back next week for more Literary Paraphernalia, and be sure to follow us on Pinterest!
