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!

James Week 10 James 5: 13-20

We finish up our study on James with some encouraging words about prayer and standing in the gap. Study Questions Week 10 When you don't feel like yourself, what is generally your first response? Do you start with prayer, rest, food, lashing out at others?  When you encounter others that are not acting like themselves what is your initial thought? How do you think your relationships would be different if you began those interactions with prayers? Prayers for understanding for yourself and peace for the other person? When you are happy, do you ever try to keep it to yourself because you don't want to celebrate while others around you are struggling? Can focusing our happiness towards God with praise and worship change how we view sharing those moments?  God is the source of every good and perfect gift (James 1:17). How can this verse help shape your worship and praise?  Take some time this week to praise God for some good gifts, which are present even

Project 52: Shiver me dufuses

This date I pulled out a puzzle that I had bought for Joel years ago.  I put up a little camp table , and even devised a system to keep the pieces in place with some fabric, so we could roll it up and stow it.  I was all ready to go and then the reality of the puzzle set in and I realised, I don't like puzzles.  I was already frustrated and worn out by the darn thing and we were only a mere few minutes into working on it!  Instead of getting upset, we changed plans. The puzzle was abandoned and Joel went out for a shamrock shake from McD's and two cherry pies.  We played some MadLibs .  The one we bought for Hannah today was Pirate themed and the story that was the funniest included a peg elbow and a pet pencil sitting on your shoulder saying "Shiver me dufuses!" We even had a joke book that we'd picked up for Hannah and read a couple of terrible jokes to one another while shuffling cards for cribbage. A fun night full of laughter and green shakes.  Well, I&#
