Top Ten Tuesday: My Bookish Wishlist

Tuesday, April 15, 2014 with 19 comments

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by the awesome ladies at The Broke and the Bookish. Apparently, they are overly fond of list-making and love to share their bookish lists with the rest of us book nerds.  =) We're game.

This week's list features the Top Ten Bookish Things (That Aren't Books) That I'd Like To Own. This could be new bookshelves, bookends, a cool bookmark, a bookish shirt, etc. You can add things you DO own if you want.

Jen's picks:

I have the "You Are Here" bookmarks, but I want the other ones, too. Though, to be honest, when reading real books, I tend to use magnetic bookmarks that mark the last line read.

I don't know why I want these, since I don't really use bookends on my shelves, but I'm sure I could find somewhere to put them. Also, I don't really think anyone who knows me would need to see this declaration on my shelf to know that it's true. :P

I've been trying to get my husband to make one of these for me for ages. It's an old wire/cable spool that's been turned into a bookshelf and I must have one. It doesn't seem like too much work, but it's a matter of locating one of those large spools.

More bookends I don't really need, but they combine my love for Doctor Who and reading and why not?

I love The Neverending Story like nobody's business. And how cool would it be to have an Orin of your very own? I've had this laptop case on my wishlist forever.

I've only recently found this awesome piece, but I will remind everyone it's on my wishlist for every birthday, Mother's Day, Christmas, forever and ever until I have acquired it. (And I know this poster is based off the movie, but I've read the book, too, so it totally counts as a bookish want.)

I'd probably just find an old but pretty copy of The Wonderful Wizard of Oz and leave this bookmark in there as a conversation piece rather than actually use it to mark my place in my current read, but I still wants it. =)

I want a sign that says "BOOKS" just like this to hang in my office/library. Every time I see one, I covet it.

And last but not least (and only #9! :D), I love coffee mugs and all things Harry Potter so these Catch/Keeper mugs are a must-have.

So, what tops your bookish wishlist? :)  Share the link to you TTT post so we can visit!

  10. I love those mugs! I've seen them on Etsy and am thinking of getting them for my son's teacher who is getting married this year and is also a big Harry Potter fan. I think I'd have a hard time giving them away once they were in my hands, though! I also love that sign idea, one would be perfect in my living room! I'm going to have to search for one of those now. :-)
