Valentine’s Day for Book Lovers

We’ve never been the couple to celebrate Valentines Day, but for some reason, I love making these ‘wish lists’. So, if you’re looking for gift ideas for the book-lover in your life here are a few that have made it to the top of my ‘wish list’!

These enamel pins by Book Riot! There are some wonderful Edgar Allan Poe ones, but I found this set particularly endearing.

Janemount on Etsy has a beautiful collection of bookish pins too (including a seven Harry Potter ones!).

When I was in Omaha to see Stephen King speak I finally found a store that sold Frostbeard candles. I’ve been curious if they smell as good as it sounds like they do, and the answer is in the affirmative. They are divine and there are so many unique scents to choose from. This is one of my favorites!

I’ve seen the picture of stair treads painted with books spines floating around Pinterest for ages now. We all have, it’s a popular one. It’s one of those DIY’s I’ve always wanted to try out, but the amount of time it would take to piece it all together always forces that project to the back burner. Horse Feather Decals on Etsy has solved that problem though. This is such a unique gift idea!

The Ohlala sells these dreamy literary scarves! I’ll take one of each, please!

Heath and Harebell knows the way to every book-lover’s heart; literary chocolate for the win!

  1. I always look forward to reading your posts. They offer that moment of “escape” that is so appreciated.

    Any suggestions for good reads in non-fiction?

    1. You’re so sweet, Donna! Thank you!

      I don’t read a ton of non-fiction and lately, the non-fiction I have been reading has been ethnographies, so probably not the best non-fiction out there. However, if you haven’t read A House In the Sky by Amanda Lindhout it’s not only the best non-fiction I’ve ever read, but it’s one of my favorite books too. Her story is so sad, but so strong. I tend to gravitate toward medical non-fiction so if that’s something you’re ok with reading, I thoroughly enjoyed Working Stiff: Two Years, 262 Bodies, and the Making of a Medical Examiner by Judy Melinek, T.J. Mitchell. She was working as an M.E. in NYC when 9/11 happened. And I’m currently reading and ethnography on compassionate cannibalism, about the Wari’ in the Amazon. And while it’s definitely not a topic for everyone, the book is fascinating! It’s called Consuming Grief: Compassionate Cannibalism in an Amazonian Society by Beth A. Conklin.

      Lol I hope I didn’t scare you off with those last two!
