Gifts for Book Lovers and Writers, Part 5

I love finding book-related gifts that appeal to readers and writers. Books are such an important part of my life, and I know they enrich others’, too. Below are some of the recent things I’ve found.

Dr. Seuss Cat In the Hat bookplate

Longtime readers of this blog will know that I love bookplates–especially with characters from my favorite children’s books. So I was delighted to find this Dr. Seuss bookplate. 20 bookplates for $2.99


I often make notes about books while I read them, if the book is really well written, if I’m trying to read as a writer, or if I’m reading it for review. So this pen-holder and bookmark combination really appeals to me. And the price is great–$3.99. They come in mulitple colors: purple, blue, red, orange, green, and grey.

Thank you to Julie Schoerke and SIBA for this link, and many others here.

Mechanical pencils that look like traditional pencils

Like writing or editing with pencils, but don’t like sharpening them? Or just like the look of classic lead pencils? Then these mechanical pencils might appeal to you.

I doubt I’m alone in that, since a lot of writers and readers I know love to spend lots of time in stationary stores! $9.00 for a set of 4.

    I am interested in buying the Stacked Boks Table. How do I go about it?

  11. Anil, you should be able to click on the link I put with the Stacked Books Table, and get to the website where they sell it. If not, you could search it in Google. I hope you find it. 🙂

    I’m interested in purchasing the stacked books table and the coasters but when I click on the link it tells me that it’s not available in my area (I live in Australia). I know of a site over here that will locate overseas goods for me, but they need the site name of the company linked on your site. Could you please let me know where the link normally goes to. Thank you.
