Literary Paraphernalia: DIY Book Totes

Sometimes I have more books to carry than I have bags to carry them in. It’s a sad but true story. That’s what inspired this post of DIY totes. And, for those that can’t sew, I also have some cool DIY sew-free totes.

So, if you’re like me and need some extra totes to cart around your abundant book collection, look no further.
