Bookish Merch to Add to Your Wishlist

Read Yourself Happy (8).png

There’s one thing I love almost as much as books: bookish merch.

Whether it’s a product with a favorite quote, gorgeous fandom-inspired art, or just a scarf with a bunch of books on it – I want it.

Here are some adorable bookish products available on Amazon right now.

Out of Print Scarves

Out of Print makes some of the most amazing book merchandise. They sell a variety of their scarves on Amazon, including a Polka-dot Poe one, but these two are my favorites, especially the colorful typewriter one.

Leather Book Strap Carrier


I’ve only seen these leather book straps in old movies and photos, so I was stoked to find out you could still buy them. It’s not the most practical thing in the world, but I’m into the aesthetic.

Book Darts


While Post-It Notes are cheap as hell, these reusable metal book darts are much better. This is something that I came across recently that I immediately wanted. I annotate my books as I read them, but once I’ve written a review I typically remove the Post-Its marking the page. I also read a lot of library books that I have to remove markers from. I love that these are usable and the whole tin of them is very affordable!

Retro Book T-Shirt

Take a look it's in a book

It’s a simple shirt, but I like it.

That’s all I have for today, but I’m always on the lookout for cute bookish merch so these won’t be the last I feel.

Bookish Loot: The Hobbit

I have found that it is the small everyday deed of ordinary folks that keep the darkness at bay. Small acts of kindness and love. – Gandalf, The Hobbit

The Hobbit has been my favorite book since I was a child. My mother had a gorgeous green leather-bound edition of it, and I always loved sliding it out of the box just to hold it. Here are some of my favorite bookish loot related to this wonderful book.
