Seasonal bookish gadgets December 30, 2008

It might be a bit late, but these bookish Christmas gadgets might give you an idea for next year. I am amazed about the bookish ornaments I found. Never knew they existed! Now I am tempted to order a bunch of them online from the US to have a bookish tree next year.

Bookish ornaments

What do you think of these classic glass ornaments with a twist? Librarians will love this one, because it says: Librarians play it by the book. (Click here to learn more.) Or this one which says: Hooked on Books! (Click here.) The next ornament can be personalized! You can put a name on the little books the bookworm in the apple sits on. What a great gift this would make… Click here to see it.

Bookish figurines

Of course there are a bunch of other bookish Christmas things. I would love to receive my gifts wrapped in this fantastic paper. Have to say I would be really careful unwrapping it to save the beautiful paper. Click here to view. Lemax is a company that sells houses and figurines to make a Christmas village. They have bookish things too. Like this one (click).  The Lemax website shows other bookish things, like the bookworm to be seen here , a library (here)  and a bookstore, which I own. It sits in my library all year round since it is not covered in snow. Click here to see it.

Seasonal reading

Of course there are loads of books with Christmas stories around. How nice it would be to sit around a fireplace and read beautiful short seasonal stories and poems out loud to guests. These books have a collection of poems (click here) and stories (click here) by famous authors. They seem ideal for the purpose.

Last but not least. Check out the Christmas tree of the University Library of Aalborg . An idea for next year?
