Gifts for #BookLovers, #Readers & #Writers

Anne of Green Gables Hoodie (Women's)The Jungle Book BackpackAs a book lover, reader, and writer, I love literary themed gifts. Every holiday I scour the internet for literary gift ideas. To that effect, there’s a great new website that I wanted to share with everyone. They not only have a great selection of T-shirts, but also book and tote bags to carry all your reading material around this summer.

Alice in Wonderland Tote BagOrigin of Species Charles Darwin T-Shirt (Women's)Even better, I have a coupon code that allows you to save 20% on your order – no minimum purchase, no maximum savings, and you can use it unlimited times! Simply go to the website https://literarybookgifts.com and use the promo code: SHANNONHOLLINGER20  (They say that sharing is caring, so feel free to share the love and pass this code along far and wide!)

Gray's Anatomy T-Shirt (Women's)Dracula Tote BagThe website is easy to navigate, and features a TON of fantastic images from some of my favorite books! I’ve selected some of my favorites to share, but there are many, many more on the site itself!

Our National Parks BackpackEdgar Allan Poe Hoodie (Women's)Despite the awesome discount code, I am in no way affiliated with this site, and will make no money off your purchase. I’m a big proponent of supporting small businesses, especially when they sell exactly the Frankenstein T-Shirt (Women's)kind of stuff I like to buy, and the proprietress was cool enough to offer a 20% discount code (SHANNONHOLLINGER20), so head on over to https://literarybookgifts.com  and show some love! They have so many different colors and styles, you’re bound to find something you or a friend will love!

(I just placed my first order, and it was incredibly easy!)

 

Alice in Wonderland Collection by Lewis Carroll ~ #BookReview

29906577With as many books as I’ve read, especially growing up, it seems a bit odd that I’ve never read about Alice and her adventures. But somewhere between seeing Spot run and and three guys who were Musketeers, (and yes, a great deal of time spent in Sweet Valley), I seemed to have missed a few steps, er, books.

I might have enjoyed the books more as a kid. Or I might have hated them. It’s too late to know for sure now, but I will say that even as an adult there is much to be appreciated on the pages. As a writer, there’s also much to be learned from Lewis Carroll’s sometimes silly, awfully wonderful prose. If you haven’t read it before, keep an open mind (and a glass of wine in hand) and give it a try. 4 stars.
