I thought it might be fun to share some of my favorite bookish things with you because I'm a total book nerd!
Not everyone likes candles, but I LOVE them. Scent can be a real mood changer for me. Just the right aroma can relax me, or energize me, or inspire me. That's what I love about The Library Collection. They remind me of the smells you will find at the library.
The Set Includes:
- Antique Books - An old book smell for sure - a leathery blend with cedarwood and patchouli (this relaxes me!)
- New Books - This candle has that new book, fresh paper smell. You'll love the combination of cedarwood, jasmine, sandalwood and patchouli (this emergizes me!)
- Ancient Scrolls has that old, musty, oily fragrance - frankincense and myrrh combined with sandalwood and more (this one inspires me!)

I'm also a big hot tea drinker. There's nothing more relaxing than having a warm cup before bedtime while I'm reading a good book. I tend to drink Diet Coke when I'm writing and hot tea when I'm reading.
My favorite teas are called Novel Teas. It's the best play on words, because each tea bag has a literary quote! The tea is as tastey as it is inspirational. And it makes me feel especially bookish while I'm drinking it! To learn more, click on the image below.
Another great tea for booklovers (and I like giving this as a gift to my bookclub friends) is Tea Story: A Tea Lover's Gift Set. You get nine different flavors in a beautiful box that looks like a lovely book! Click on the image to find out more.
Like I said, I drink Diet Coke while I write, hot tea while I read, but to get me started in the morning, this is what I need! And this is seriously the best tasting coffee I've ever had! Click on the image to find out more.
One of my readers sent me this amazing Gourmet Book-Themed Gift Set. Everything in it was delicious! This gift comes in a bookend chest filled with sweet treats and coffee to enjoy during reading time. It includes: -Cashew Roca Toffee Chocolates, Chamberry Raspberry Truffles, Chocolate Covered Almonds, Java Bon Coffee Caramels, 3 Assorted gourmet coffees, and 2 Fudge Brownies, and it's all packed in a lovely Keepsake BookEnd Chest.

I do a lot of my reading in bed or while lounging on the couch, and this little gadget is so convenient. I don't know about you, but my hand hurts from holding my reading device, so being able to prop it up--even while lying on my side (the legs are flexible)--is such a luxury! I've tried other device holders, and this one's my fav.
I haven't bought these Harry Potter sheets, yet, but they're on my list to buy! As long as I'm reading in bed, I may as well get cozy in the world of Harry Potter!
If not Harry Potter, then definitely Alice's Adventures in Wonderland!
When I'm not reading in bed or on the sofa, I love to read in a nice warm bath. Although I don't usually have wine (I like hot tea instead), this caddy can hold either a wine glass or a tea cup along with your reading device and phone. I also have a special bath pillow I use to keep my head propped up while I'm soaking and reading.
And who doesn't love bookish t-shirts? Here are my favorites!
I hope you find my bookish recommendations useful! I'll add more as I come across them. Please feel free to comment with your own bookish recommendations!
