Today's topic is pretty self explanatory, so let's just get right to the shiny things, shall we?
I really love book posters (I bought my brother The Odyssey as a book poster for his birthday a few years ago, and it's AWESOME), but the Pride and Prejudice ones are always a bit schmaltzy for my taste. This one is much better. Plus, Persuasion is my favourite Austen book, so it works out nicely!
I have a weird obsession with maps, and this one (which is hideously low res, but if you click the link above, you'll see just how awesome it is!) is phenomenal.
I was talking to Cait a few weeks ago about how I have illustrious dreams for some day having a nerdy mug collection. I have this rather odd tendency to buy mugs as souvenirs when I travel (which is annoying, because they're a bitch to get home without them breaking!). Last year's addition was a mug from the Library of Congress. And now that I've discovered this one, I need it in my life.
I love me a good hoodie (at the moment, mine mostly come from universities that I didn't attend. What up, Harvard?!), and this one is pretty magical. Heh. MAGICAL.
5. Book candle
A candle that smells like old books? Uh, YES PLEASE. Although somehow I feel like Australia Post wouldn't be too keen on handling it, given that it's flammable and all...
For when I inevitably run out of space on my bookshelves and books start to pile up all over the place. Because OH MY GOD, SO ACCURATE.
The Marauders' Map was always one of my favourite things about the Harry Potter series, whether in book or movie form. So I think I need this. Like, immediately.
8. A home library
Although I'm guessing mine would have rather more YA and quite a bit less leather-bound stuff on the shelves...
We spent a class or two talking about banned books during my librarianship course, so this tote bag seems only appropriate to raise awareness of continuing book censorship!
10. Card catalogue
Perhaps not one QUITE that big, but I do really want a card catalogue in which to put all sorts of random stuff. Creating a card catalogue for my home library would probably be overkill, wouldn't it............
What's on your list?
