When I head that today was National Book Lovers Day, I got really excited. Although, I like to celebrate my love of books and reading every day, I definitely loved the sound of a specific day being set aside for me and my fellow bibliophiles and I thought that today would be the perfect day to share a few of my favorite bookish things. The only problem is that I found too many wonderful things for book lovers to narrow it down to just a few and the post kept getting longer and longer so I’ve decided to break it into two parts. This post will focus on great bookish gifts for book lovers and cool things you can use to show off your great taste in books and literature, while Part 2 will focus on fun things to do to celebrate Book Lovers Day.
