*Friend Me Friday is a new feature I’m starting on my blog. Every Friday I’m going to share something about myself. These posts most likely won’t be book related. The main reason I started blogging was because I wanted to make friends, but sometimes I worry that my personality isn’t shining through my reviews. I want to share a little bit about myself, so you all can get to know me better. And, hopefully, I’ll get to know you a little better by the comments I hope you leave*
Since Christmas was just two days ago, I thought it would be fun to share the book-related gifts I received. Of course Christmas isn’t about the presents, but I still thought it would be fun to share. My mother really picked out some bookish presents that I love!
First, she gave me this awesome cuff bracelet with the inscription “I still believe in 398.2” I love this for so many reasons. First, it’s sort of paying tribute to the fact that I’m not only a librarian, but a children’s librarian. 398.2 is the dewey decimal call number for fairytales. How awesome is this?
I also got this totally amazing iPhone case that’s The Little Prince themed. The Little Prince is one of my favorite books. What I espeically love about this is that it isn’t overtly all about The Little Prince. You won’t find the book title anywhere on this case. But if you are familiar with the book, you’ll immediately recognize the illustration. LOVE IT.
Mom also gave me this cute little notebook with the Deathly Hallows symbol stitched into the cover. Again, I love this because it isn’t overtly Harry Potter, but Harry Potter fans would easily recognize that symbol. Also, yay notebooks!
And, finally, mom got my this amazing keychain that is not only a reference to my favorite book (Pride and Prejudice) bu also a reference to one of my new favorite TV shows (and something I’ve been obsessing over for the last month or so) – Doctor Who. It says: “it’s a truth universally acknowledged that a madman in possession of a blue box must be in want of a companion.” Coolest thing ever, right?
I think mom found all these on Etsy, but I don’t know the store names. Did you guys recieve any fun book-related presents for the holidays?
