Literary Book Gifts

I was recently approached by the owner of the website www.literarybookgifts.com to see if I would be interested in sharing my thoughts on her products. Since I love books, I thought that I'd take a look at her site. Turns out there was plenty of things there that I thought that you might be interested in seeing too.


Literary Book Gifts designs are created by Melissa the owner. When asked about where the images come from she told me "Some are remastered off of old book covers, and some are based off of antique illustrations that do or don't have any inherent connection to the novel."

Looking through her site, I'm reminded of something my brother once told me in reference to farmer's markets, "If a stall only has one or two items, you can pretty much know that they grew them themselves." Literary Book Gifts is not an extension of the big sites that sell hundreds of copy paste items. This is an artist who is offering her art for your appreciation.

Without further ado, here are some of my favorites.

If you know me, then you know that Frankenstein is one of my favorite novels. I just love the relationship between Frankenstein and the monster. The use of the grave markers really captures one of the overarching themes of the story. 

Tale of Two Cities is a classic novel and the whole story turns on what happens in a pub like the one pictured in this shirt. 

How can you go wrong with a classic typewriter?

There are several different novels and classic literary images to chose from in men's, women's, and totes. And to help you with gathering some gifts for your literary family and friends, I have a coupon code for you. Just use STORYTELLER20 to get 20% off your order (no expiration date!) 

I have not ordered or received any of the products myself. The opinions expressed in this post are my own. I'm never required to give positive reviews but I'm always thankful when I can!

Saturday Rant: Dominoes

I always find it interesting how life can be very much so like dominoes sometimes. Let's see, my husband went out of town this last fall. I volunteered to preach for him while he was gone. I told a friend about the online copy of the sermon. She forwarded it to a few folks, next thing you know, I'm doing a short testimony at my weekly Bible study. What I'm really wondering it "What next?"

You see, when I got done preaching, and my husband came back into town, we talked about how people reacted to the sermon. Then we talked some more when I was asked to share again. And the question was, maybe I'm supposed to be open to talking more often.

To be honest, I haven't done a lot of talking in groups since I had a really bad experience a few years ago. I was always opinionated, in fact I still am. I have lots of opinions about most everything from how warm my house should be to which way the car should take me from point a to b. But I found myself in a group of …

The Minimalist Home by Joshua Becker

I've been following Joshua Becker's blog for a few years and have read all the things and even put them into action. I was excited to be able to read his room-by-room guide for minimizing your home.

The Minimalist Home systematically goes through every space in your home, including the garage and yard, and talks about how to minimize them. Becker has put thought into which spaces should happen first for the biggest impact and encouragement. Because even though it's wonderful to have a minimalist garage, it may not be the best place to start and get the whole house done.

Our home has been trending towards minimalist in nature for a while now. And I'm happy to share with you that this little book helped us take a few more steps in the minimal direction. I loved all the checklists for the different areas. As well as the facts about living space and stuff consumption sprinkled throughout.  The Notes section is full of great resources for further reading as well.

When Through Deep Waters by Rachelle Dekker

When Through Deep Waters is Rachelle Dekker's fourth book, the first three a dystopian trilogy. I was excited to see what other stories she had for us. Fortunately, this one does not disappoint.

Alicen has suffered a tragic loss and is trying to find her way through the grief. She lands in the family vacation home of her childhood friend. The idyllic location reminds her of all the hope she had for her life as a child and forces her to deal with many different disappointments in her life including the life and death of her beloved grandmother.

Here's what I love about the book, one, it's an old-school Frank Peretti style spiritual warfare book in that Alicen is an ordinary person that is struggling with spiritual forces. Two, it's a fiction book that made me want to get out my journal and explore some thoughts that bubbled up about myself! Third, God wins in the end and it doesn't look like the normal everyone desires. Fourth, straight up scripture usage that does…
